Ravens TE Gillmore likely out for season

The team announced on Tuesday that starting tight end Crockett Gillmore will likely miss the entire 2017 season after undergoing surgery to fix a torn MCL.

Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that Gillmore probably will be out at least five months.

The team announced on Tuesday that Gillmore had surgery to fix MCL and is expected to need five months to make a full recovery.

The Ravens' rash of injuries continued during practice on Tuesday when two players were carted off. A third-round pick in 2014, Gillmore has missed 15 games over the past two seasons, which has limited him to 41 receptions over that span.

CB Maurice Canady also had a knee procedure, but he is not expected to miss the season. The damage is serious enough to end Gillmore's season. But Harbaugh added: "We're going to be fine".

A 2014 third-round pick from Colorado State, Gillmore was bothered by a hamstring injury past year and played only seven games. Dennis Pitta was waived in the spring after his latest hip injury made it unlikely he'll ever play again and Darren Waller has been suspended for the entire season.
