We are just a few days into training camp, and the Baltimore Ravens seem to be getting every sort of bad news you can possibly imagine on the injury front. It was reported on Saturday night that the injuries to both Crockett Gillmore and Maurice Canady were both very significant, hurting the tight end and cornerback depth even more.
The Ravens made a corresponding move to help the tight end depth by signing Larry Donnell on Sunday with Gillmore once again sidelined.
After the open practice at M&T Bank Stadium, head coach John Harbaugh gave an update on both of them and clarified what kind of injury they are dealing with.

Gillmore is getting surgery tomorrow, so tomorrow's evaluation will be especially big for him. Canady is a big loss due to the fact the Ravens were counting on him to replace Tavon Young, who tore his ACL back in OTA's. Canady was impressing throughout mini-camp and the start of training camp before this setback, and it hurts Baltimore's secondary despite the upgrades general manager Ozzie Newsome made to the unit in the offseason. Each depth piece keeps falling, and players such as Lardarius Webb and Brandon Boykin will have to step in for now.
