While this bit of news isn't about a Denver Broncos player, it does impact the Broncos in 2012. According to Adam Schefter, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is done for the 2012 season after blowing out his Achilles while playing basketball.

Suggs, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year in the NFL, finished the 2011 season with 14 sacks and 7 forced fumbles, becoming more and more of the Ravens leader on defense. Without Suggs, the Ravens will lean heavily on 2012 Second Round pick Courtney Upshaw to fill the void.
The Broncos will face the Ravens in Baltimore during Week 15 of the coming season.
