Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs had successful surgery on Tuesday to repair his torn Achilles tendon.
"Terrell [Suggs] had a successful surgical procedure done on his Achilles tendon this afternoon by Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte, [N.C.]," Ravens general manager Oxzzie Newsome said in a statement. "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."
It is anticipated that it will take Suggs 4-6 months to recover, and it was speculated that he would miss the entire 2012 season. However, Suggs has said he wants to try to return by mid-season.
Suggs started 16 games last season and had 14 sacks.
