The Ravens brought in free agent running back Beanie Wells for a workout last week. But instead of impressing the team and earning a contract, Wells suffered an injury that will prevent him from playing for the Ravens or anyone else this year.
Wells tore his Achilles tendon during the workout, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.
A torn Achilles tendon is a significant injury, meaning not only will Wells not play in the NFL this year, but he might be hampered in trying to catch on with another team next offseason. That’s a tough blow.
The Cardinals drafted Wells in the first round in 2009 and cut him this year. He has 625 carries for 2,471 yards and 24 touchdowns in his career.
The Ravens are still looking for help at running back and have also worked out Bernard Scott.
