Ben Watson tore his Achilles on August 27th, and will be placed on injured reserve.

Summary

Baltimore signed Watson despite bringing back 2015 second-round pick Maxx Williams and last season's starter Crockett Gillmore. It was one of the more surprising free agent signings across the league, but it shows that Baltimore is committed to having weapons at Joe Flacco's disposal. And it provides the team with a viable target should receivers like Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman fall short in their recoveries from injury. With only a block-first player like Gillmore and a rookie in Williams in 2015, Baltimore lacked playmakers, especially once Smith was lost for the season. Watson is coming off career highs in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. While he's not likely to see those totals of 74, 825, and six repeat without Drew Brees as his quarterback and a pass-friendly offense in New Orleans, Watson showed that he's more than just a blocker at tight end.

Ravens | Ben Watson suffers torn Achilles' (Sat Aug 27, 07:39 PM) - Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (Achilles') left the field after only two plays Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Detroit Lions, and was later diagnosed with a torn Achilles', ending his season.

Our View: The Ravens have a collection of talented TEs behind Watson, but this is a key injury for that offense. Right now, both Dennis Pitta and Maxx Williams are banged up. That means Crockett Gillmore if the next man up.
