ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Ravens All-Pro LB Terrell Suggs is targeting Sunday’s game vs. the Houston Texans as his return date. from his achilles tendon tear suffered this offseason:
Despite returning to practice only Wednesday from a torn Achilles in April, Ravens LB Terrell Suggs is targeting and expecting to play Sunday versus Houston, according to league sources. Sources said that even Suggs’ family and friends have plans to travel to Houston in anticipation of watching him stage one of the quickest returns from this type of significant injury that any athlete ever has. “Yes, that’s still the plan,” one source texted today. Baltimore still wants to make sure there are no setbacks this week, especially today, when Suggs returns to the training facility after his first day of practice since last season. Plus, Suggs appears to have added weight during his layoff that he may try to shed in coming weeks. Ravens coach John Harbaugh continually has declined to put a timetable on Suggs’ return and many have believed it would be mid November. But more and more it’s looking like there’s a real chance, maybe a better than real chance, that Suggs will make his season debut Sunday.
This would greatly affect the AFC North, as Suggs was expected to not return until mid-November at the earliest. With his return, it would help offset the resent losses of Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb.
