Can Terrell Suggs Return To Form For Baltimore Ravens?
Look at the picture above this text. We love this guy in Charm City.
Terrell Suggs was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2011 with an amazing season of 14 sacks, seven forced fumbles and two interceptions. The following offseason, all of us Baltimore Ravens fans heard those three little letters of doom: ACL.
Whenever you hear that, you know it’s not good, and it’s only of matter of how catastrophic the injury.
In Suggs’ case, the tear happened in April and was only a partial tear. There was hope — a small amount of hope that he could come back in 2012. Most people thought it could have been after the bye week against the Cleveland Browns, but to the shock of everyone, Suggs came back for the game before the bye against the Houston Texans and even had a sack in that game.
He clearly wasn’t the same player after the injury, though; the same burst just wasn’t there. The star later tore his biceps, but only missed two games after that. It was a frustrating individual season to say the least.
Suggs has had a whole offseason to recover and get healthy again. He said at training camp that he is 100 percent. He’ll now have the benefit of having the newly-signed Elvis Dumervil playing opposite to him. Many pundits believe that Suggs and Dumervil can break the combined team single-season sack record of 24 set by Trevor Pryce and Adalius Thomas in 2006.
Suggs is 30 and entering the prime of his career (according to himself), and I’m not doubting the man.
With Ray Lewis and Ed Reed both gone, he is now the longest tenured player on the team. He’s coming back healthy, more mature and ready to take on more of a leadership role. I expect big things from Suggs in 2013.
