Browns cleared by league after Ravens' inquiry
BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The NFL found no evidence that Cleveland Browns defensive players intentionally gouged the eyes of Baltimore running back Willis McGahee during the Ravens' 28-10 win last Sunday.


Ravens coach John Harbaugh sent tapes to the league's office in New York earlier this week asking for a review of two separate incidents.

McGahee was cut on his right eyelid and was poked in the left eye. He was forced to leave the game twice.

League spokesman Greg Aiello said there was no evidence to support the Ravens' claims that the Browns tried to injure McGahee.

Harbaugh declined to name the names of the Cleveland players in question.

"I don't think we should say," he said. "I wouldn't want to comment on it, but you can see it on the tape."

On a 7-yard carry to Cleveland's 1-yard line in the third quarter, McGahee came up bleeding after a tackle by Browns linebacker Andra Davis, who appeared to get his hand caught inside McGahee's visored helmet while being blocked to the ground by Baltimore tackle Jared Gaither.

McGahee got up and immediately headed to the sideline with blood dripping down his face. His right eye is still swollen and he has been limited in practice this week as the Ravens prepare for a Monday night game against Pittsburgh.

"It still looks pretty bad to me," Harbaugh said. "That thing is swollen up badly. As long as he can see, he'll play. But if he can't see, he's not going to be able to play. So, we'll have to try to get that swelling down."

The Browns were caught off-guard by the Ravens' inquiry.

"I have no knowledge of that," coach Romeo Crennel said. "I hadn't heard anything."

Crennel was asked if there are teams who go over the line with dirty play.

"I don't think there are teams, but players that will push the limit," he said. "You try to deal with those guys as best you can, point it out to the officials and talk to your team about keeping its composure."
