Terrell Suggs Tears Achilles Playing Basketball

News is coming in this morning that last year’s Defensive Player of the Year, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, has torn his Achilles tendon during a game of hoops and will be out for the entire 2012 NFL season.

Suggs (affectionately known as T-Sizzle) had a career year last season for the Baltimore Ravens, leading their defense.  He was a major factor in getting them to the AFC title game and then won the NFL’s top defensive award as a result. Suggs racked up 70 tackles and 14 sacks, and was a dominating force.

Basketball? Really?

The Ravens have a lot of depth at the linebacker position, but losing a sack monster and emotional leader like Terrell Suggs for the season will leave a big hole to be filled by younger LB’s like Kindle, Kruger and Upshaw.

Has the Sizzle fizzled?
