Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs could remain out with an ACL injury until November, The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported. Wilson's report, which cites a league source with knowledge of Suggs' situation, stands in contrast to other reports that pegged his possible return as coming when the Ravens take on the Houston Texans on Oct. 21.
From Wilson's report:
The source refuted reports that Suggs was aiming toward that game, characterizing it as unrealistic he would be ready or that the Ravens would risk a setback by allowing him to play. The source added it's far too soon to know exactly when the NFL Defensive Player of the Year will return from a surgically repaired partially torn right Achilles tendon.
Suggs was placed on the physically unable to perform list before the season, so the Texans game would be the first he could possibly return.
Suggs led the Ravens — and finished tied for fifth in the NFL — with 14 sacks last season. The Ravens have missed Suggs, as their defense sits only 24th in the NFL in yards per game allowed.
