When Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs partially tore an Achilles tendon in the offseason, it was believed he’d be out for the year. Suggs said otherwise, and now he’s less than a month away from proving it.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Suggs will return on October 21 or November 4, the two games on either side of the team’s October 28 bye.
Predictably, the player is pushing for the earlier return. Coach John Harbaugh hopes to tap the brakes beyond Halloween.
The team is 3-1 without Suggs but could certainly use the elite defender if they want to win the AFC North.

It's also the kind of game that fans of the Ravens have come to expect. With a defense anchored by linebacker Ed Lewis and safety Ed Reed, the Ravens managed to keep the downtrodden Kansas City Chiefs out of the...
