Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs made an appearance on ESPN’s First Take on Friday and backed off from his initial prediction that he’ll be ready to return to the field in November after tearing his Achilles working out in Arizona.
“I’m very optimistic (but) I’m not going to give no timetable (like) I’m going to be ready by this point (or) I’m going to be ready by that point (or) I’m going to be ready to play in this game,” Suggs said. “No, I’m not going to say that. But I will tell you that I will be playing in 2012.”
I would expect Suggs to be back some time in December and possibly the playoffs. Once he gets back on the field, don’t expect him to be a full-time starter. He’ll likely be a part-time player that gets on the field during passing downs.
