Terrell Suggs, the reigning NFL defensive player of the year, remains confident that he'll terrorize opposing quarterbacks this season following surgery on a partial tear of his Achilles tendon. The Ravens linebacker told the Baltimore Sun on Wednesday that "everything went good" with Tuesday's surgery. He said Dr. Robert Anderson repaired a partial tear. "There is only a small incision, and he said it was not as bad as some thought it was, which I had already been told," Suggs told the paper, adding that his timetable is still "four to six months." Despite that four- to six-month window to return for full activity, the average return to playing in an NFL game is 11 months, according to a study presented at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in 2006. Suggs told The Sun that he has no doubt that he'll return this season. "I'm 29 years old," Suggs told the Sun. "I don't miss games. I'll be returning soon."
