The Associated Press' NFL Defensive Player of the Year is expected to have surgery next week, according to a person who spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the injury have not been released.

The Ravens issued a statement Thursday saying they are in contact with Suggs, he will see a specialist next week, and "we'll know more at that time."

The injury is a major blow to one of the NFL's top defenses, which also boasts linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ed Reed. The Ravens went 12-4 and won the AFC North last season.
