FILE - This Sept. 10, 2012 file photo shows Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs acknowledging fans in the second half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Baltimore. Suggs hasn't ruled out the possibility of making his season debut Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012, against the Houston Texans. The notion seems far-fetched, given that Suggs practiced for the first time Wednesday after undergoing surgery in May on his torn right Achilles tendon.  (AP Photo/Nick Wass, File)

Here are some others.
