TE - FA
Week 2 Outlook
The Baltimore Ravens have waived tight end Crockett Gillmore (knee) on Friday.
After suffering a season-ending knee injury, Gillmore was waived by the Ravens Friday. Baltimore made the Gillmore transaction in correspondence to the Austin Howard signing from earlier in the day. Gillmore will likely make his way back to an NFL roster next offseason when he is healthy for 2018.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting Baltimore Ravens tight end Crockett Gillmore (knee) will miss the entire 2017 season with a torn meniscus.
It comes to no surprise that Gillmore will miss all of 2017 with a torn meniscus. It was the expected post-op outcome. In his absence, expect Maxx Williams and Ben Watson to be the favorites to emerge as Baltimore's top two TEs entering the regular season. However, they are both coming off long-term injuries as well, which could open the door for Nick Boyle and Larry Donnell to receive increased reps in training camp.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Baltimore Ravens tight end Crockett Gillmore (knee) will undergo meniscus surgery Monday.
Rapoport is adding that currently, there is no timetable for Gillmore's return and will know more of the "extent post-op." In a corresponding move to Gillmore's injury, the Ravens signed Larry Donnell Sunday. He will likely compete for the role of the team's TE1.
Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec is reporting tight end Crockett Gillmore (knee) is "dealing with a potentially significant" knee injury suffered at a training camp practice Friday.
Already down two tight ends -- Baltimore lost Dennis Pitta to a hip and Darren Waller to a year-long suspension -- Gillmore is the latest Ravens player to potentially succumb to a long-term injury. Zrebiec is reporting that the 25-year-old TE sustained a knee injury Friday that could be "serious." Although the ultimate severity of the injury has not yet been determined, Gillmore's reaction after suffering it Friday made it seem like he could miss an extended period of time. Gillmore "immediately went down to the ground after catching a pass late in Friday’s practice," Zrebiec said via the Baltimore Sun. "He hobbled off the field and spiked his helmet when he reached the sideline." At this point, I fully expect Baltimore to address the TE position sooner rather than later. Gary Barnidge and Larry Donnell are both available on the open market.
Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec is reporting tight end Crockett Gillmore (undisclosed) is dealing with a "myriad" of injuries but should be ready for training camp.
Gillmore, who is dealing with multiple injuries that likely include a back ailment, will likely be ready for the start of training camp in late July per Zrebiec. With Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller already lost for the 2017 season, Gillmore, who appears to be the healthiest of the Ravens' tight ends, has a prime opportunity to emerge as the starter. He is expected to compete with Nick Boyle, Benjamin Watson and Maxx Williams, assuming the latter is ready, for the top spot on the depth chart for the remainder of the offseason. However, I'd expect Watson enter Week 1 as the starter as he is the proven veteran of the group.
