In the offseason when it was announced that Ravens LB Terrell Suggs suffered a Torn Achilles Tendon in an individual workout, many thought that Suggs would be done for the season.
He said he’d be back sometime during the year, but that was a long shot. The team placed him on the physically-unable-to-perform list and activated him on Wednesday in a shocking move.
Even though he’s been removed from the PUP list, it was still a long shot for him to see any game action until November, just months after enduring the injury in April.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Suggs plans on playing on Sunday against the Houston Texans.
“Despite returning to practice only Wednesday from a torn Achilles in April, Ravens LB Terrell Suggs is targeting and expecting to play Sunday versus Houston, according to league sources. Sources said that even Suggs’ family and friends have plans to travel to Houston in anticipation of watching him stage one of the quickest returns from this type of significant injury that any athlete ever has. “Yes, that’s still the plan,” one source texted today. “
This would be a great lift for the Ravens defense who got bad news this week when it was announced Lardarius Webb and Ray Lewis would be out for the rest of the year.
If the Ravens are smart, which they are, they will make sure that the reigning defensive player of the year is more than 100%, as this would be the fastest turnaround from a blown Achilles in league history. A setback could possibly put him in harms way for next season.

When it comes to the age-old question, "trick or treat," one can assume Terrell Suggs would opt for "trick."
Ravens sideline reporter Gerry Sandusky -- yes, with a "G" -- was filming one of his weekly segments when Suggs surprised him with a running hug that might as well have been a tackle. After all, Suggs is 260 pounds.

Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs was activated from the physically unable to perform list and returned to practice Wednesday. That move couldn't come at a better time for Baltimore.

Ravens LB Terrell Suggs Not Expected To Play Sunday -
Updating a previous story, NFL Network and the Baltimore Sun are reporting that the Ravens do not expect OLB Terrell Suggs (Achilles’) to return this week. Ultra-reliable Adam Schefter’s earlier reporting is being called into question. It sounds like Suggs expects and wants to play, but the Ravens intend to hold the reigning...
Rumors of OLB Terrell Suggs coming back from his Achilles rehab to bolster the Ravens' run defense against the Houston Texans are circulating around Baltimore and the NFL as of the Friday before game time. Personally I would not count on Suggs being even close to ready to be activated. But he did have a limited practice on Wednesday and another on Thursday. I guess we won'...
RAY OF HOPE
The Ravens are not ruling out the notion that their iconic linebacker could make a return this season despite tearing his tricep on Sunday.
Check out the video of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs pretending to tackle a reporter.
The Baltimore Ravens haven't completely abandoned hope of having Ray Lewis back in uniform this season.
Lewis tore his right triceps in Sunday's game against Dallas and was scheduled to undergo surgery on Wednesday. Although coach John Harbaugh said Monday that the 37-year-old linebacker is out for the year, the Ravens placed Lewis on injured reserve with the ''designated...
Baltimore Ravens (5-1) at Houston Texans (5-1)
This is a very interesting game for a number of reasons. The most obvious is Baltimore’s injuries. This line was at -4 a week ago, but because of Baltimore’s injuries, it’s shifted 3 points, even though Baltimore won and Houston got blown out at home. In spite of that, we still are getting a slight public lean on Houston. Houston...
When the schedule was released way back in April, I, along with quite a few others, circled this game on the schedule as a tough one for the Ravens. That was assuming good health for Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Ed Reed and Haloti Ngata among others. Now, this game could be a blowout.
Fortunately for the Ravens, I don’t think they will get blown out. Joe Flacco and the offense play...
