Ravens DE/LB Terrell Suggs Tears Achilles, Likely Done for 2012

There's some unfortunate news for Ravens fans this morning that could have a big impact on the entire AFC landscape for the 2012 season. NFL.com's Jason La Canfora is reporting that Baltimore Ravens DE/OLB has torn his Achilles Tendon, and will likely miss the entire 2012 season:

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has torn his Achilles and will likely miss the 2012 season, a source with knowledge of the situation said Thursday.

Suggs was working out and doing drills in Arizona, which is his normal offseason plan. It's a huge blow for the pass-rush hungry Ravens, who will be without the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Suggs and the Ravens are one of the Patriots biggest rivals, and this is certainly a big blow to their defense, especially after losing another pass rusher, Jarrett Johnson, via free agency to the Chargers. Now, the team will likely have to rely on Paul Kruger, who has just 6.5 sacks in 36 career games as well as rookie Courtney Upshaw, who the team drafted in the second round of last week's draft.

While Suggs' injury could allow Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to get a little more sleep before the next Patriots vs. Ravens match-up, it certainly takes from the intrigue of the game, as Suggs was never shy in his criticism of Tom Brady and the Patriots. In 2012, the teams will play on national television week three on Sunday night in Baltimore.
