Terrell Suggs Ruptures Achilles Tendon yet Again

Baltimore Ravens football linebacker Terrell Suggs ruptured his right achilles tendon in 2012 while playing basketball.  Miraculously, he came back from injury in just five months and six days after surgery (Mr. Suggs said that his injury was a bit higher up than most achilles tendon injuries, which often mean faster recovery). Besides his fast recovery, Mr. Suggs surprised many with very good 2013 and 2014 seasons.  Terrell Suggs leads the Baltimore Ravens in all-time sacks, and is a 6 time Prop Bowl selection (including in 2013 after coming back from injury).  He was also the NFL defensive player of the year in 2011.

Unfortunately, a few days ago Mr. Suggs ruptured his left achilles tendon. It is rare for me to feel sympathetic towards a multimillionaire athlete, but I am feeling sorry for Mr. Suggs and his second bout with misfortune.  At his current age of almost 33, it is quite likely that his career is over.
