OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -Quarterback Kyle Boller was placed on injured reserve by the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, ending his season and perhaps his stay with the team.
Boller hurt his shoulder in Baltimore's second preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings and has not played since.
Coach John Harbaugh described the injury as either a torn labrum or other damage that would render Boller unable to play this year.
Boller was to enter his sixth NFL season, all with Baltimore. He is in the final year of his contract. Boller entered the preseason competing for the starting job with Troy Smith and top draft pick Joe Flacco, who ultimately won the job because of Boller's injury and Smith's lengthy battle with infected tonsils.
