Free agent running back Beanie Wells has never been one of the more durable backs in the NFL. The Arizona Cardinals selected the former Ohio State Buckeyes bruiser with the 31st overall pick in 2009, and while he certainly had flashes of greatness, the lasting image of Wells is of him in street clothes or on the trainer’s table on the sidelines of far too many games.
Wells has 2,471 yards and 24 touchdowns rushing, with 28 catches for 293 yards in 51 career games, but has missed 13 games over the past three seasons while being seriously limited in many others games due to various ailments.
Now, according to ESPN’s Adem Schefter, Wells suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during a tryout last week with the Baltimore Ravens:
While trying out for the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, the former first-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals hurt his Achilles and it prevented him from finishing the workout.
The injury is so bad, per league sources, that Wells will not be able to work out for any other teams in the coming weeks, ending his season before it even began.
