Terrell Suggs starts, shows no signs of rust

Ravens Texans Football AP

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is back on the field for the first time since sufferig a torn Achilles tendon during the offseason, and he looks none the worse for wear.

Suggs started in the Ravens’ defense and was on the field for all three plays as the Texans went three-and-out on their first offensive possession. The first two plays were runs in Suggs’ direction, and although Suggs didn’t make the tackle on either play, he held his ground and didn’t get pushed off the ball.

The Texans’ third offensive play was a pass, and Suggs leapt into the air and tried to knock it down, just missing the ball. That leap didn’t look like it came from a guy who’s recovering from a serious injury.

Whether Suggs can hold up for a whole game, or whether he needs some time to get into football shape, remains to be seen. But on the first series, Suggs didn’t look rusty.

UPDATE 1:26 p.m. ET: On his seventh play, Suggs recorded his first sack of the season. Yes, Suggs is back.

    That pic scares me.

    That guy wasn’t lucky when he picked his gene pool…

    Matt Schaub just saw the lack of rust firsthand while becoming Suggs’ first 2012 QB victim.

    Suggs is a d bag

    Whether one likes this guy or not, one has to admit that his return so soon is amazing. And smart of Balt to use him early since he’s obviously not 100% in shape yet.

    He’s not human! I mean really can’t you tell? Look at his picture. He looks like something from Men In Black 3

    What a beast. You only wish your players could heal like ballers

    UPDATE: Texans up 16-3. Ravens showing they’re the team closer to 3-3 than they are to 5-1.

    Haha another raven injury on o line. And a texan beatdown is in progress!!! 23-3 in a minute!!!

    Have to admit, the guy looks pretty good so far. What’s most amazing is how well he’s playing considering how overweight he looks.

    Yeah Suggs’s comeback is making a huge impact in this game.

  12. jtchernak says: Oct 21, 2012 2:15 PM

    When the ravens aren’t getting the calls from the refs or lucky breaks their not a good team they should be 3-3 at best

  13. vincentbojackson says: Oct 21, 2012 2:15 PM

    Whole lot of Ravens need to start “healing like ballers” if they want to stay relevant.

    Cam Cameron thinks the Ravens are losing by 20 with 2 minutes left in the 4TH QUARTER! Ray Rice + Vontae Leach = 2nd and 6, 3rd and 2. Why do I know this and I’m not qualified for the OC job?

    He’s beasting out, but the rest of the team is sucking it up

  20. st1llerz1 says: Oct 21, 2012 2:57 PM

    The problem is Joe Flaccid is still……Joe Flaccid.

    Please hurry up and pay this guy like the elite quarterback he isn’t.

    Unfortunately, the AFC North looks like a medical ward at this point. I’m not so sure the team that returns to health the soonest might not win this thing with 10 wins. Unbelievably, that bodes well for the bungles as they seem to be staying relatively healthy.

    Never like to see guys go down with injuries. Rolling up on the rookie tackle didn’t not look good. Plus, Ngata limping off the field before the half.

    As the Nest Burns….

    GO STEELERS!

    This thread is showing the best of Steeler fans.

    Getting beat on by the Texans is better than losing to the Raiders and the Titans.

    My head hurts from reading this, I’m not a Steeler fan but I’m sure their “finest” can spell better than this.

    Turn the game off and read a book.

    Suggs is a true beast. You wouldn’t see harrison or captain head and shoulders back this soon after an achilles injury. Suggs is a beast!

  26. sudz28 says: Oct 22, 2012 7:07 AM

    Glad to see that Suggs is back and appears to be at 100%. The games are just better when he’s playing, this beat-down not withstanding. Welcome back T-sizzle, can’t wait to face you in November!
