Terrell Suggs Has Torn Biceps, Seeks Second Opinion and More AFC North News

Indeed, the injury suffered by Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs on Sunday is potentially serious, with Aaron Wilson and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reporting that Suggs has a torn biceps in his right arm.

This doesn't mean Suggs' season is over; he is seeking a second opinion about the extent of the injury, which will determine his playing status going forward. Wilson and Zrebiec note that less-severe biceps tears can be played through, which will be what Suggs likely does if he can.

The biceps injury is the second potentially season-ending ailment Suggs has dealt with this season, first partially tearing his Achilles' tendon in the spring.
