Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs started his first game on Sunday since tearing his achilles six months ago and is already making an impact. Suggs sacked Matt Schaub in the first quarter against the Houston Texans.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs started his first game on Sunday, just six months after surgery to repair a torn achilles, and it didn't take long for him to make an impact.
Early in the first quarter, Suggs broke through the Houston Texans' offensive line, schooling tackle Derek Newton and lighting up Matt Schaub for the sack.
Suggs has been providing consistent pressure on Schaub despite not having a chance to work his way into game shape.
After losing Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb for the season in Week 6, the Baltimore Ravens defense desperately needed a spark. Suggs has provided that right away, although the Texans have still had some success moving the ball through the air. The Ravens could use an offensive spark at this point, trailing 16-3 in the second quarter.
