Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is expecting to play Sunday in Houston against the Texans just days after returning to practice after being out since April with a torn right Achilles tendon, according to a report Thursday morning from ESPN NFL analyst Adam Schefter:

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.

Schefter also offered up the note that Suggs' family and friends are making the trip to Houston in anticipation of his return to the field. But Schefter also said that Suggs has put on considerable weight during his time away from game-action and might need more than a few days to return to form.
