Suggs is a key player on Baltimore's defense so this is obviously a big loss for the Ravens.
This Suggs injury comes only a few weeks after the pass rusher made controversy by hitting Sam Bradford low in Baltimore's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Suggs, who has a history of being a dirty player, was penalized for his hit on Bradford, but the NFL later ruled it was a legal hit. Bradford and Jason Peters were among Eagles players who thought it was a dirty cheap shot.
I'm not going to assume the Eagles are celebrating Suggs' injury, because that's not really cool, but I can't imagine this news exactly breaks their hearts.
