Matt Birk to undergo knee scope

The Baltimore Ravens’ acquisition of Casey Rabach on Tuesday makes even more sense now.

The team added some veteran insurance because it can’t be certain about Matt Birk, who will have arthroscopic knee surgery, according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.

Birk’s agent Joe Linta says that his client should return in a matter of a few weeks. If Birk is back and healthy before the beginning of the season, Baltimore could potentially cut ties with Rabach prior to Week 1.
