BREAKING: Terrell Suggs Tore Achilles , Out for the Year

One of the AFC’s best teams took a major hit today.

LB Terrell Suggs, one piece of the heart and soul of the Ravens defense, is gone for the 2012 season, after tearing his Achilles playing basketball.

He likely will miss the entire year, and you have to wonder if he will ever play to that level again.

A break for the other AFC teams, but tough break for a great football player. He will be missed sorely by the Ravens.

UPDATE
It now sounds as if it may have not been playing basketball, as Suggs has said this is false. Looks like it may have been done in training. I just wanted to keep everyone updated.
