The Baltimore Ravens have announced outside linebacker Terell Suggs is expected to miss the rest of the 2015 season after an Achilles injury in their week one defeat to the Denver Broncos.

Suggs was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of the Ravens’ 19-13 defeat to their AFC rivals a game that ended in a Joe Flacco interception on a late comeback drive.

Suggs tore his right Achilles in the 2012 offseason although this is not a repeat of that injury, say ESPN.

Blow for Ravens

This is a big blow for the Ravens who lose their best pass rusher after just one week of the new season and one of their most impactful defensive leaders.

2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and a six-time Pro Bowler, Suggs has also registered over 100 sacks in his career and was part of the Ravens’ Superbowl 47 winning team.

This is also a big blow for Suggs himself. At 32, this injury could make a huge impact on the latter part of his career and could even bring a return into question.

Hope for season

The Ravens will hope that without Suggs they can still have a good season on the defensive side.

Despite the loss, the Ravens defence definitely had Peyton Manning’s number, sacking the future Hall of Fame quarterback four times and holding the Broncos to 3.2 yards per play with the Broncos not having a snap in the red zone until the fourth quarter.


There were a number of other injuries across the opening weekend. Cleveland Browns’ starting QB Josh McCown went down in their 31-10 defeat to the New York Jets. McCown suffered a concussion on a scramble play in the first quarter.

His removal from the game gave another chance to former Heisman Trophy winner and 2014 first round draft pick Johnny Manziel.

Johnny Football started well enough with a 54-yard touchdown to Travis Benjamin in his first drive but was sacked three times, gave up two fumbles and threw an interception.

In the same game, Jets linebacker Lorenzo Maudlin was stretchered off after what looked to be a bad neck injury – Mauldin was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with a concussion and fortunately neck injury was not as bad as first feared.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver TY Hilton and Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington also went off during the week one early games.
