Suggs is close to full strength
By Tom Carpenter
The fact that Terrell Suggs has been a part of the Baltimore Ravens' run to the Super Bowl is impressive in its own right. The guy only took five months to recover from a torn Achilles tendon and then battled through a torn right biceps that he sustained in December. Now, it appears that he is getting closer and closer to 100 percent as the big game nears, according to Matt Zenitz of the Carroll County Times.
“He’s getting better,” coach John Harbaugh said. “He’s becoming quicker, faster, more explosive — all of those things. You can tell that [the Achilles] is healing. He’s just playing more like a normal 100-percent Terrell Suggs would play.”
It's clear that he has made vast improvements in the postseason; he made only 22 tackles and two sacks during the regular season, but he already has 19 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in the playoffs.
