Terrell Suggs says he’s off crutches, “beasting”

AP

There are still months of rehab in front of him, but Baltimore outside linebacker Terrell Suggs indicated he’s over one hurdle.

No more crutches!” Suggs wrote on his Facebook account, per Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. “Beasting.”

Suggs has targeted November for his return from a torn Achilles tendon. That’s an optimistic timetable at best, but at the moment, they’re willing to work with him.

The Ravens have already announced they had no plans to try to withhold any of his $4.9 million salary, despite reports the injury happened while he was playing basketball.

The bigger question is how they’ll replace his production until or if he returns this year. While they might have confidence in Paul Kruger or rookie Courtney Upshaw, the 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles Suggs posted last year are beyond a what anyone could expectation of either player.

  1. He should take this time and do some rehab on that jacked up grill of his. Just sayin’,

  2. Take the year off… I picked up Kruger in an IDP league and I am thin at LB.

  3. Hope he doesn’t rush back too quick a-la Jon Beason last year. Leg injuries have a way of tricking you into thinking you’re ahead of schedule, healing to a point rather quickly, but there is a world of difference between everyday use, and the stress of NFL speed training.

    Best of luck either way for Terrell

  4. I tore my achilles my freshman year and was not even close to playing at the end of the season. He does not understand how sensitive of a tendon it really is.

  5. If he could maybe shut his mouth once in a while, maybe he could channel all of that energy into his Achilles. But we all know that’s not possible.

  6. Injuries to the Achilles usually means that the player that once was, will never be the same. I think the odds that he comes back as the same old Suggs is like 1 in a 100. Takeo Spikes was one of the very few that has been able to come back and play the same or harder, but he is a physical specimen of his own kind, a true beast. I wish Suggs the best, you never want to see a great player go down.

  7. The Ravens are showing a lot of class by paying Suggs this season when they clearly clould have withheld payment because this was a non football injury. That said, it is highly unlikely that Suggs will be the same player when he returns.

  8. He also played in an AFC championship game with a separated shoulder and recorded 2 sacks of Big Ben. He heals fast, granted I don’t want him to rush his rehabilitation.

    Some people need to realize they are professional athletes for a reason — they are genetically superior. Rehab for a professional athlete is different than it is for an every-man. It is their job, and their only job. I cant wait to see a healthy Sizzle come playoff time.

  9. Who are you a-holes with this he’ll never be the same bullsh##?

    Just wait unti he flattens Roethlisbogger and breaks his leg in half for GOOD this time

    Andy Dalton will be carted off in the Sunday night game and the brownstains aren’t even worth talking about.

    It was only “partially” torn to begin with. Suggs will be even a stronger beast when he comes back.

    The AFC north BELONGS to the RAVEN NATION…oh…and Brady will have his acl torn apart in the Raven game…bank on it.

  10. He lied about how he hurt his achilles and until I see a youtube video of him walking around without crutches, I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS LIAR! Enjoy 3rd place Raven fan!

  11. Just make sure u comeback healthy. You do neither the nor yourself any favors by rushing it.

    Here’s hoping he comes back strong. Not only is he a great player in this nfl, bit he is a standup guy and has really become a vocal leader on the “d.”

    None of those things are easily replaced.

  12. “While they might have confidence in Paul Kruger or rookie Courtney Upshaw, the 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles Suggs posted last year are beyond a what anyone could expectation of either player.”

    Yeah I get what your trying to say here, but at least be professional and spell/grammar check.

  13. With Suggs the Ravens got plenty of sacks with a four man rush, in his absence they will likely rush both outside linebackers, so the sack total will still be high, but Ray will have to play more coverage.

  14. I’m not a Ravens fan, but I hate to see anyone go down to injury. NFL games suffer when teams aren’t at 100%, and this particularly applies to studs like Suggs. I admire his determination, but November is, in all likelihood, an unrealistic timeline. He needs to closely listen to the advice of his doctors, even if they’re telling him what he doesn’t want to hear. You can easily re-aggravate the injury if not fully ready. Best of luck to him.

    You’re right, one of the most feared guys in the NFL and the reigning Defensive Player of the Year really hasn’t earned the right to talk some smack.

    And have you ever really listened to him? He’s better spoken than half of the pro analysts — go to YouTube and watch him put Skip Bayless in his place a half-dozen times. I admit, schooling Bayless is going for the low-hanging fruit, but still…if you can’t admit that Suggs is an intelligent speaker that earned the right to run his mouth there’s something else about him that’s bothering you, because it ain’t his words or his play.

    You’d better check the stats on Suggs’ effectiveness against the Bengals.

    Guarantee Sizzle tears it the same or worse when/if he plays again, then 37 1/2 year old Ray Lewis and 34 year old Ed Reed can lend him thier walkers. Max Starks stonewalled Sizzle last season when he came back. Pittsburgh has young blood this season and a new offense that will give BMore D more than they can handle. You barely beat the Texans who had a rookie QB in the playoffs last year.

    Got to love these people who have no clue what they’re talking about. Jon Beason didn’t rush back last year, he was on IR after week 1. Didn’t play again that year, wasn’t injured the year before. Why is everyone saying he rushed back and that he is injury prone? Oh you must be referring to the other linebacker who was injured, Thomas Davis. Jon Beason hadn’t missed a single game before last season.

  19. I’m an ASU alum like Suggs so even tho I’m a steelers fan I’ve always had great respect for him and enjoy watching him play. Without a doubt a great player.

    -If they didn’t steal the TD away from Gresham last year we would have beaten you even though we very much short-handed.
    I wouldn’t be talking so big after losing a few key players and now even Ed Reed is thinking about hanging it up….
    The Rookies are growing up, we got the Law Firm, added a bunch of talent…
    Bengals take the AFC North this year!

  21. Greg Ellis for the Cowboys had an Achilles injury late in his career came back and had a monster season. He will be fine as long as he does it right.
