Gillmore to IR, Ravens sign LB Carter

OWINGS MILLS – Tight end Crockett Gillmore (back) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, and the Ravens have signed outside linebacker Chris Carter, the team announced Monday. Carter was a fifth-round Steelers draft pick in 2011, and has also played with the Colts and Bengals. 

While Gilmore won’t play until 2016, there’s a good chance cornerback Jimmy Smith (thigh) will play Sunday against the Steelers, according to coach John Harbaugh. Smith left Sunday’s game against the Chiefs in the first quarter. 

“Jimmy has a good chance,” Harbaugh said during his Monday press conference. “I just talked to him, I think he has a pretty good chance to play.”

In other Monday notes:

Harbaugh said he was not sure who would start at quarterback Sunday. Jimmy Clausen has started the last two games, but Matt Schaub was healthy enough to dress Sunday as Clausen’s backup. Ryan Mallett has only been on the roster since last week, and with just two games remaining, Harbaugh did not guarantee Mallett would see game action.

“He’s done a good job,” Harbaugh said of Mallett’s work ethic since arriving. “He’s been here practically 24-7, learning the offense. We’ll just see where it goes this week. Obviously the clock’s ticking. If we want to see him this year, we’re going to have to put him out pretty quick. It’s a matter of whether he’s ready to play. We also want to do justice to our chances to win the game, too.”

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.
