Gillmore (knee), who has played tight end since entering the NFL in 2014, is in the process of transitioning to the offensive line, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Gillmore, who has been limited to just 17 appearances over his past three seasons with the Ravens, was sidelined all of last season while recovering from surgery to address an MCL injury, which he sustained early in training camp. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds last season, the 26-year-old has reportedly added considerable bulk to help with the transition. In addition, Gillmore has spent his offseason training with former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentley to improve his blocking technique. Given his lack of prior experience at guard or tackle -- his most likely new positions -- Gillmore may have to settle for a short-term deal when he hits free agency this summer and could face an uphill battle to earn a 53-man roster spot for any team that he might join.
Gilmore (knee) has cleared waivers and was placed on IR, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Gillmore wasn't expected to be a major contributor coming into this season anyhow, but after landing on IR, it appears his season may be over before it started. The Ravens will likely rely on the likes of Ben Watson and Maxx Williams at tight end this year.
Gillmore (knee) was waived/injured by the Ravens on Friday.
Gillmore suffered a season-ending meniscus injury last Friday, which followed a 2016 campaign in which he played just seven games due to injury. In the wake of multiple offseason shoulder operations to boot, Gillmore has now been waived to clear a roster spot for the Ravens. A third-round pick in 2014, Gillmore was entering the final season of his contract with Baltimore.
Gillmore (knee) had his MCL repaired and is expected to miss the entire 2017 season.
Already scheduled for meniscus surgery Monday, the 25-year-old Gillmore ended up needing a more serious procedure that likely will keep him out for the year. Coming off an injury-marred 2016 season in which he only played seven games and ultimately needed shoulder surgery, Gillmore previously was in line to compete with Ben Watson, Maxx Williams (knee) and Nick Boyle for the starting tight end job. Watson is an early favorite, but the competition seems to be wide-open.
Gilmore (knee) is expected to undergo surgery Monday to repair his meniscus and remains without a timetable for a return, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
The Ravens still haven't shed much light on how long Gilmore will be sidelined, but considering he'll be undergoing surgery, it seems unlikely he'll be ready to go by the start of the regular season. After losing both Dennis Pitta (hip) and Darren Waller (suspension) for the season, that leaves Baltimore a little thin at the position. The team opted to sign free agent Larry Donnell on Sunday to help make up for the lack of bodies, and he's slated to battle the likes of Ben Watson, Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle for reps. That said, Watson remains the favorite for the time being.
Gillmore is dealing with a potentially serious knee injury, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Baltimore entered the offseason with impressive depth at tight end, but the team lost Dennis Pitta (hip) and Darren Waller (suspension) before training camp, leaving Gillmore to compete with Ben Watson, Maxx Williams (knee) and Nick Boyle for snaps. Gillmore has struggled to stay healthy since serving as Baltimore's top tight end for much of the 2015 season, playing in only seven of the team's last 20 games. He may be in danger of a long-term absence, and at the very least, he'll fall behind in the position battle. Despite the fact that he's 36 and missed all of last season with a torn Achilles, Watson is the early favorite for the Week 1 starting gig.
Gillmore suffered a right leg injury in Friday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
This is a frustrating development for Gillmore, who entered camp with as good a shot as anyone to land the starting tight end gig for the Ravens in light of Dennis Pitta's hip injury and Darren Waller's year-long suspension. According to Zrebiec, Gillmore's injury "didn't look good." The Ravens figure to provide an update on the severity of Gillmore's injury in the coming days, at which point Baltimore's tight end situation should have some more clarity. If Gillmore misses extended time, Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle should get more reps alongside Ben Watson.
Gillmore (shoulder/hamstring) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Gillmore spent the early part of the offseason recovering from multiple shoulder surgeries and then missed June minicamp due to a hamstring issue, according to Callie Caplan of The Baltimore Sun. He still saw his job prospects improve during that stretch, as Dennis Pita (hip) was injured and released and Darren Waller was suspended indefinitely. With 2015 second-round pick Maxx Williams (knee) still rehabbing from major surgery and 36-year-old Ben Watson returning from a torn Achilles' tendon, Gillmore and Nick Boyle both have a shot at the starting job in what eventually figures to be a three- or four-way competition. Gillmore previously held that role back in 2015 when he started all 10 games he played and caught 33 of 47 targets for 412 yards (8.8 per target) and four touchdowns. Injuries have since derailed his career, and it's quite possible he'll be a part of a timeshare even if he's technically the starter.
Gillmore (shoulder) said he wants to have an every-down role next season, BaltimoreRavens.com reports.
Coming off an injury-marred campaign and multiple offseason shoulder surgeries, Gillmore faces a difficult path to the top of a crowded Baltimore depth chart. However, he did serve as the team's primary tight end for most of 2015, and it's possible the Ravens will ultimately release one or both of Dennis Pitta and Ben Watson (Achilles). The more likely scenario still has Gillmore serving as part of a committee in the final year of his rookie contract. Furthemore, he'll have to successfully rehab his problematic shoulders before a realistic assessment of his role can be conducted.
Gillmore is recovering from multiple shoulder surgeries this offseason, Alex Marvez of Sporting News NFL reports.
Gillmore's window of opportunity during the 2016 season became as open as it has ever been after Ben Watson went down to injury. Unfortunately for Gillmore, he was unable to avoid a plethora of ailments himself. In just one season, the 25-year-old managed to endure a broken back and torn hamstring on top of two shoulder surgeries. Given his long history of injuries, there's a chance that even the smallest of setbacks in 2017 could end his time in Baltimore.
Gillmore caught eight of 14 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown over seven games in 2016.
Gillmore's season was largely wiped out due to injury for the second consecutive year in 2016. He suffered a thigh injury against the Jets in Week 7 and never took the field for the remainder of the season. Entering the season, Nick Boyle's suspension -- coupled with Ben Watson's Achilles injury -- opened a clearer path to playing time for Gillmore than many had expected, but he never became a major factor in the passing attack even when healthy as he never saw more than four targets in any game. Although Gillmore has shown flashes of potential in the past, his inability to stay on the field has driven his fantasy stock in the wrong direction. Furthermore, Baltimore has a very crowded tight end group entering 2017 with veterans Dennis Pitta and Watson both under contract in addition to the likes of Darren Waller and former second-round pick Maxx Williams. Gillmore is signed through 2017, but his future with the team is somewhat clouded due to the Ravens' depth and contractual obligations at tight end.
Gillmore is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Gillmore wasn't on the Ravens' Week 16 injury report after practicing fully all week, but he'll remained sidelined Sunday, while Dennis Pitta, Darren Waller and Nick Boyle handle the team's TE duties against the Steelers.
Gillmore (thigh) is not listed on the Ravens' injury report Wednesday.
After being inactive for seven consecutive games due to a thigh injury, it appears that Gillmore is healthy and fully participating in practice. He returned to practice in the lead-up to Week 15 before being listed as inactive, so he has been making progress for over a week at this point. If Gillmore does play Sunday against the Steelers, he could have a reduced role compared to what he had earlier in the season due to the ascensions of Darren Waller and Nick Boyle at tight end.
Gillmore (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 tilt versus the Eagles, the team's official site reports.
Gillmore will thus miss a seventh consecutive game, leaving Dennis Pitta to handle the majority of tight end reps, with Darren Waller backing him up.
Gillmore (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.
Gillmore hasn't played in the Ravens past six games, but he appears to be nearing a return after practicing in full Friday. He'll be the team's second or third option at tight end when he's back.
Gillmore (thigh) returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Gillmore has missed each of the Ravens' past six games, but his return to practice suggests he may be nearing a return.
Gillmore (thigh) is ruled out of Monday night's game against the Patriots, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Gillmore will first need to get back on the practice field in order to play again. He's now set to miss his sixth straight game.
Gillmore (thigh) did not practice on Friday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Gillmore hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring over a month ago and he's unlikely to play in Monday's Week 14 matchup with the Patriots.
Gillmore (thigh) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Gillmore has missed the last five games with the injury and the fact that he still is not practicing this late in the week is not an encouraging sign for the tight end, although the team does not play until Monday night. Dennis Pitta will still likely continue to see majority of the snaps at tight end for Baltimore.
Gillmore (thigh) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Gillmore is now set to miss his fifth consecutive game with a thigh injury, while Dennis Pitta will continue to see a bulk of the snaps at tight end. Gillmore's next opportunity to return will come in Week 14's Monday night game versus the Patriots.
