No broken collarbone for Ravens QB Beck

Rumors swirled today that Ravens third-string QB John Beck had a broken collarbone and was headed for season-ending injured reserve, but team and league sources say that is incorrect.

Beck’s MRI showed a slight muscle or ligament strain/sprain with no tears, and there weren’t any signs of a broken collarbone, although no X-ray was taken. Beck is scheduled to be re-evaluated in a few days, and he’s already feeling better than he did after Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Redskins.

The Ravens worked out free-agent QB Cleo Lemon on Saturday, and he passed a physical. The team was in contact with Lemon’s representatives, and the sides are scheduled to speak again Sunday morning, according to a source, as Baltimore could need a quarterback.

The Ravens like Beck, who worked with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron with the Dolphins in 2007 and came to Baltimore this offseason as a free agent. Beck currently is behind Joe Flacco and Troy Smith on the Ravens’ depth chart.
