More injuries for Ravens during Tuesday’s practice

The Ravens announced on Tuesday that tight end Crockett Gillmore is likely to miss the entire season after having surgery to repair an MCL injury, which puts Gillmore in the same boat as running back Kenneth Dixon and cornerback Tavon Young as players lost for the year before the first preseason game.

There may not have been any additions to that list on Tuesday, but the Ravens did have a few more players pick up injuries during their practice session. Fourth-round guard Nico Siragusa injured his left leg and couldn’t put weight on it before being carted into the facility for further evaluations.

Wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo was also carted off after hurting his back and wideout Breshad Perriman hurt his hamstring. Coach John Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun, he didn’t think Perriman’s injury was serious, but added “you never know” when discussing Perriman’s status.

Those new additions to the injury list will be monitored along with cornerback Maurice Canady, who had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his knee and is expected to miss a good chunk of time as a result.

  1. And the NFL wants more games? Churn ’em & burn ’em.

    I know, they knew the danger, yadda yadda. Very unfortunate to be out this early. You never know what can happen over a year. But then again, no risk, no reward. No big risk, well, you get it.

  2. Maybe its just me, but when this many players are getting season ending injuries in camp, year after year, maybe there is something going on that should be investigated? Where is the players association on this? If there isn’t anything going on that violates the rules, then maybe they need to take a look at what they are doing. What field surface are they doing it on, etc. Maybe there is an explanation and they can get this fixed, but seriously, enough is enough. I’m not even a Ravens fan, but I’d be terrified of which player was going to go down next to a season ending injury

    At least part of the problem is the lack of contact allowed in practice any more as well as lack of time with the coaches..all courtesy of the new agreement

    If that were the case, all teams would have a similar amount of injuries. Some of this is just bad luck.

    First of all I love your handle and know all too well about it. Secondly as a Ravens fan I can tell you all the things they’ve done. Within the past two seasons the Ravens have completely redone their stadium from having that PAT (Prescription Athletitc Turf) and have made it all grass. They also completely overhauled their training staff and hired injury prevention people. Doesn’t seem like that’s working out too well for them, does it. It isn’t even the regular season yet and the Ravens are already leading the league in the worst column of all, the IR.

  6. I’ve been following pro football since before the NFL-AFL merger–when training camp consisted of two-a-days and there was no CBA which now allows players a certain amount of days off in camp, as well as non-contact days. What befuddles me is the increase in injuries in the last 20 years or so, especially the “minor” ones consisting of sprains, pulls, etc. Could it be that all this time off from actual football drills is making these athletes more injury-susceptible? The players are going down like flies nowadays and, as a paying fan, I’m feeling more and more like I’m not getting nearly the best brand of football that my money can buy.
