OWINGS MILLS, Md. Pavel Zacha Jersey . -- In his first interview with reporters in 322 days, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was engaging, humorous and foul-mouthed.The only part where Suggs held back was on his return to the field.Suggs tore his left Achilles in last years season opener and wont suit up for the first practice of training camp Thursday. He has been placed on the physically unable to perform list.Were close to where we want to be, Suggs said Wednesday, when the Ravens full team reported to training camp. Ill be honest with you: The Ravens side of me is like, [F---] it, Sizz, lets go. Lets play some football. But Ive got to be smart with it. I cant be timid, but Ive got to be smart. It wont be long before Ill be off of it and out there practicing with the guys.Suggs, the 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, said its fair to say hes motivated by the questions on whether he can play at a high level again.At 33, he is the oldest defensive player on the Ravens. He is coming off his second Achilles injury; he tore the right one four years ago. And hes entering his 14th NFL season.The simple fact that I had the opportunity to rehab, come back, listen to my naysayers, thats a privilege, Suggs said. Every dark cloud has a silver lining, so I guess thats kind of mine. People say he cant do it again. I guess were going to find out.Suggs signed a four-year, $20.7 million contract extension in February 2014. Before his injury-marred 2015, he had double-digit sack seasons in 2013 and 2014, totaling 22, the sixth-most in the NFL over that span.The Ravens dont want to rush back Suggs, and coach John Harbaugh said last month that Suggs has a shot to participate in training camp.To my eye, hes doing a really good job and working really hard, Harbaugh said in June.After Suggs was injured last season, he disappeared from the team. He was rarely seen at the team facility and attended only one game on the sideline.It was just a sucky feeling. It was a sucky time for me, Suggs said. We didnt start too good. It was just a really bad time. I didnt want it to be about me that I was gone. It was kind of like, Just let the smoke clear, and let everything happen. Thats what happened.The biggest question for Suggs is about what is taking him so long to come back. In 2012, he returned to the field five months and six days after having surgery on a torn right Achilles tendon. Now, he isnt practicing despite being 10 months removed from tearing his left Achilles tendon.When it happened the first time, I was very anxious, Suggs said. This time, I guess, I was just very patient. I learned patience, I guess, this time. Will Butcher Jersey . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Cheap Devils Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.cheapdevilsjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-keith-kinkaid-jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. DETROIT -- Joe Mauer provided the early power, and P.J. Walters gave Minnesota the start it needed on that mound. Now the Twins can finally move on after an ugly 10-game losing streak. Mauer homered and had three hits, and the Twins snapped their skid with a 3-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. Walters was solid in his first major league appearance of the season. He was called up from the minors before the game. "It feels good to get out from under that 10-gamer," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, who was ejected in the third inning. "We got out to a quick start, and then we had to hold on for a long time against a really good team. Thats not an easy lineup to shut down, but P.J. did a great job. He got us deep enough and then our bullpen finished it off." Mauer had already earned the ire of Detroit fans when he broke up Anibal Sanchezs no-hit bid in the ninth inning Friday night. He was booed when came to bat in the first inning Saturday -- then booed some more after his solo homer to right field. The Twins scored three runs in the first, and that was enough. Walters (1-0) went six innings, allowing two runs and eight hits. Mauer had two singles to go along with his homer. "Mauer is Mauer," Detroit catcher Brayan Pena said. "Sometimes you make great pitches to him, and he still can hit you." Four relievers finished for the Twins, with Glen Perkins pitching the ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances. Detroits Doug Fister (5-2) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings. Jhonny Peralta homered for the Tigers. Gardenhire was ejected while arguing a call in the third inning. Mauers first-inning drive was ruled a homer, then reviewed because the ball bounced back into the field of play. A replay showed it hit the top of the wall in right, but may have also glanced off a railing above the wall. The call stood. The Twins werent done. After being shut down in Sanchezs one-hitter the previous evening, they broke through right away against Fister. Justin Morneaus RBI double made it 2-0, and he came in to score on Chris Parmelees single. Walters got out of a jam in the second when Andy Dirks struck out with the bases loaded. The following inning, Gardenhire was ejected. Thhe Twins had men on first and second with nobody out when Morneau hit a grounder to first baseman Prince Fielder. Cheap Devils Jerseys China. He threw to second, and the Tigers turned a double play -- but Mauer, who had advanced to third on the play, was sent back to second because of an interference call. Josh Willingham had gone sliding into Peralta, the shortstop. Gardenhire came out to argue and was thrown out of the game by second base umpire Joe West. "His call was that he slid too close to the bag or something. He told me that he was protecting the defender, just like he had always protected me when I was playing," Gardenhire said. "I said Joe, I didnt play that much." Detroits Miguel Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a first-inning single, but that was his only hit. Torii Hunter got the Tigers on the board in the fifth with an RBI double, but Cabrera struck out to end that inning. Peralta made it a one-run game in the sixth with his fifth homer of the year. "It was just location. I was able to keep the ball down on almost every pitch, and thats huge against that lineup," said Walters, who was making his first major league appearance of the season. "I got one pitch up to Torii, and I got another one up on the homer, but those were the only big mistakes." Twins centre fielder Wilkin Ramirez left the game after a scary collision on a fly ball. Omar Infante lifted a fly to left-centre in the sixth, and left fielder Willingham was under it when Ramirez came speeding over to try to make the play. Ramirez did catch the ball, holding onto it for the third out after colliding with Willingham. Ramirez remained down on the ground well into the break between innings. He was finally able to walk off under his own power, but when he got back to the dugout, he appeared to be flexing his jaw. NOTES: The Tigers honoured their 1968 World Series-winning team before the game. ... It was the 64th ejection of Gardenhires career and second this season. ... Fister struck out seven and walked one. ... Minnesotas Chris Colabello had a sixth-inning single -- his first major league hit. ...
