Suggs coming back from surgery
May 10, 2012James F Byrnes Freshman Academy
Terrell Suggs tore his Achilles tendon on April 28th while doing some sort of physical exercise at his Arizona home.
It has not been told if Suggs fully or partially tore his Achilles tendon.
Suggs had his surgery on May 8, 2012; he says he will be back for the 2012-2013 season.
Suggs traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina to have his surgery done by Dr. Robert Anderson
A normal recovery for full activity is four to six months, but for an NFL player the average is 11 months.
The Ravens have not indicated that Suggs will or will not play in the 2012-2013 season.
It is, however, very unlikely that Suggs will come out on the field on September 10th when the Ravens play the Cincinnati Bengals.
Suggs has only missed three games in his whole nine-year career in the NFL.
When the Achilles tendon is torn, many factors come into play on when the player will be able to return.
The severity of the tear, the intensity of the tear, and the player’s positions are all combining factors.
Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos wide receiver, was back on the field in less than seven months after his surgery.
Misael Martinez, student at Byrnes Freshman Academy, said, “That is a serious injury, and Suggs may come back. But he won’t be the same.”
