Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (back) placed on IR

Monday December 21st, 2015

Baltimore Ravens tight end Crockett Gillmore has been placed on season-ending IR, the team announced Monday.

Gillmore, 24, has missed the past two weeks with back and shoulder injuries. 

Gillmore had 33 catches for 412 yards and four touchdowns this season, his second in the NFL. He was expected to fill the void on offense left by rookie Nick Boyle, who was suspended four games after violating the NFL’s drug policy.

The team also announced Monday that it signed free-agent outside linebacker Chris Carter to replace Gillmore on the 53-man roster. Carter was released by the Cincinnati Bengals last week after playing 13 games with the team this season, primarily on special teams.
