Beanie Wells tore Achilles while working out for Ravens
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.
