Terrell Suggs Injury: Ravens LB Reportedly Thinks October Return Is Possible

The Baltimore Ravens received some unfortunate news on Thursday when it was reported that LB Terrell Suggs tore his Achilles' tendon, which could cost him the entire 2012 season. The Ravens are saying they're not sure yet whether it's a partial tear or a complete tear, and that Suggs will see a specialist next week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter initially reported the injury came during a game of basketball, but now says it could also have come during a conditioning test.

Suggs, according to Schefter, believes he can come back by October. That would put his recovery time around six months or so. Most Achilles' injuries take nine to 12 months to recover from, so October would be an optimistic outlook on the recovery time.

Either way, Suggs seems likely to start the season on the PUP list, if he plays at all in the 2012 season.
