The team announced on Tuesday that starting tight end Crockett Gillmore will likely miss the entire 2017 season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn MCL. The recovery time for Gillmore's injury is five months, which means he probably wouldn't have a chance to get back on the field unless the Ravens were to make the playoffs.
Gillmore suffered his injury while trying to make a catch during practice on Friday.
The injury to Gillmore is the latest setback for a Ravens team that seems to lose at least one guy every week to a major injury.
Baltimore's group of injured players includes quarterback Joe Flacco, who's been . Although the Ravens don't expect Flacco to miss much practice time, the team hasn't announced yet when he might return, which makes his current health status somewhat of a mystery.
Besides Flacco, the Ravens have also been dealing with multiple serious injuries in the form of running back Kenneth Dixon (knee), tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) and cornerback Tavon Young (knee), who have . Pitta after suffering his injury back in June.
Gillmore and Pitta aren't even the only two tight ends that Baltimore has already lost for the season. Ravens tight end Darren Waller is also out for the year due to a suspension
