Terrell Suggs Injury: Ravens LB Has Successful Achilles Surgery

Terrell Suggs underwent successful surgery on his torn Achilles tendon, the Baltimore Ravens announced Tuesday:

"Terrell [Suggs] had a successful surgical procedure done on his Achilles tendon this afternoon by Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte, [N.C.]," Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome said. "After some recovery time, ‘Sizzle' will begin the process of rehabbing the area. We know he will work hard to get back on the field with his teammates as soon as the doctors and trainers allow. We're confident that he can make a full recovery."

The Ravens didn't reveal whether Suggs suffered a full or partial tear of his Achilles tendon, nor did they release an official timetable for his recovery. The linebacker previously predicted he'd be back on the field by early November.

Suggs, the NFL's reigning Defensive Player of the Year, is coming off a career season, recording 14 sacks, 70 tackles and seven forced fumbles. He injured himself the weekend of the NFL Draft during a conditioning workout.
