Vince Biegel Tears Achilles; Tyler Linderbaum Fine After X-Ray

The Ravens lost one of their first stars of training camp as veteran linebacker Vince Biegel suffered a torn Achilles on Thursday.

Biegel fell during a passing/blocking drill near the end of a hot practice at the Under Armor Performance Center. Biegel was carried off the pitch after receiving slaps on the helmet from a group of teammates.

This is the second time Biegel has suffered a torn Achilles.

“Just in a 2-on-2 drill and he just leaned the wrong way,” head coach John Harbaugh said. “For Vince, he’s a veteran, this is his third season-ending injury in three years – New Orleans, Miami and now here. It’s really unfortunate for him and we’ll be with him on this trip. “

The Ravens signed Biegel in mid-May and he was having a solid summer. Just last week, Harbaugh gave him a strong thumbs up, saying he goes about his business every day in pursuit of perfection.

Biegel wasn’t a lock to make the 53-man roster, but it’s a blow to Baltimore’s depth at the position as Tyus Bowser and David Ojabo are in rehab. The Ravens have Odafe Oweh, Justin Houston, Daelin Hayes, Steven Means and a few undrafted rookies.

“Vince was fighting to make the team,” Harbaugh said. “He would have had a great chance of succeeding because he’s just a solid, tough, talented guy who does everything exactly as hard as he can.”
