Suggs has surgery on Achilles

Baltimore Ravens star Terrell Suggs underwent successful surgery to repair a partial tear in his Achilles tendon on Tuesday.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome issued a statement regarding Suggs' surgery and condition.

“Terrell [Suggs] had a successful surgical procedure done on his Achilles tendon this afternoon by Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte, [N.C.]," Newsome said. "After some recovery time, ‘Sizzle’ will begin the process of rehabbing the area. We know he will work hard to get back on the field with his teammates as soon as the doctors and trainers allow. We’re confident that he can make a full recovery.”

How soon that full recovery comes about is what is in question. Early reports counted the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year out for all of 2012, but Suggs has said he is confident he can play this season.
