Ravens Lose Dennis Pitta With Potential Season-Ending Hip Injury

Guest Post by Judd Bleser.

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was carted off of the practice field with a hip injury today after a collision with reserve safety James Ihedigbo. All indications are that Pitta fractured his hip and will need surgery to repair it.

Dennis PittaBeing that Anquan Boldin is now gone, Pitta’s injury is really going to hurt — no pun intended.

After Torrey Smith and now without Pitta, the Ravens are seriously lacking offensive weapons. Look for second tight end Ed Dickson to fill the void effectively; Dickson came on strong toward the end of last season and has always shown flashes of elite athleticism.

10-year veteran and Maryland native Visanthe Shiancoe has been spotted at practice, and now that Pitta is out, a deal for Shiancoe may be in sight. Shiancoe would be a viable option, especially for a Ravens team now desperate for weapons.

    Seems reminiscent of 2001 when just after the Super Bowl win the Ravens lost Jemal Lewis. This one hurts, but it’s next man up.

      I’m sure they’ll figure out something. Ozzie is the best GM in the NFL. Why do you even bother watching sports? You’re constantly negative and critical of the O’s claiming poor ownership and management, now you’re being negative and critical about a team that has proven to be one of, if not the best in the NFL at drafting, acquiring, and developing players.

          You can talk however you want, it just doesn’t seem to me like you enjoy watching sports at all. It doesn’t sound like you are enteretained. I just don’t understand subjecting yourself to something that you refuse to enjoy because you are so overly critical and negative. Everything with you is doom and gloom.
