Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta underwent surgery on his dislocated right hip on Monday and is done for the season.
Insight: The Ravens will turn to Owen Daniels as their primary tight end. Pitta has now missed back-to-back years with right hip dislocations. Daniels has 10 catches for 70 yards in three games and caught two touchdowns against the Steelers in Week 2.
 
9/21/2014 2:13:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was carted off Sunday with a right leg injury.
Insight: It was a non-contact injury, and obviously looks like Pitta's day is done. He had three catches for 12 yards, before leaving the game.

Insight: A dislocated hip limited Pitta to just four games last season. If Pitta can stay healthy, he should be a top-ten tight end in 2014.
 
12/8/2013 11:48:00 AM
Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta will make his season debut Sunday against Minnesota.
Insight: Pitta missed Baltimore's first 12 games with a dislocated hip. Dallas Clark is a healthy scratch, which means Pitta and Ed Dickson will be the Ravens' only available tight ends for Week 14.
 
12/7/2013 4:17:00 PM
Description: The Ravens have activated tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) from injured reserve according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports.
Insight: Pitta is expected to return Sunday against the Vikings, but because he'll be on a limited snap count he'll be no better than a TE2. He could emerge as a starting fantasy option in Weeks 15-17, however, as Joe Flacco has been hurting for a consistent underneath target all season.
 
12/4/2013 4:58:00 PM
Description: According to espn.com, Ravens coach John Harbaugh is "pretty hopeful" tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) will be able to play Sunday against the Vikings.
Insight: "I think it's going to be a matter of how ready is he to play and how healthy he is to play," Harbaugh said. "Something like that, all of the doctors are going to be involved. The health of the player comes first. That's the No. 1 thing, his ability to withstand the rigors of a game. I think we're on track that way. We'll just have to see how it plays out." Given the lack of top option at the tight end position, Pitta could be a worthwhile stash for Weeks 15-16, but will likely be on a snap count if he plays Sunday.
 
11/22/2013 4:58:00 PM
Description: Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun says the best-case scenario for Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta's return from a hip injury is Week 14 against Minnesota.
Insight: Pitta practiced this week for the first time since dislocating his hip in training camp. He's unlikely to play Sunday against the Jets and is highly questionable for a Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Steelers. Given the state of the tight end position after Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham and Vernon Davis, fantasy owners should stash Pitta as he'll see plenty of targets from Joe Flacco when he returns to the lineup.
 
11/20/2013 2:45:00 PM
Description: Baltimore tight end Dennis Pitta returned to practice on Wednesday.
Insight: It's the first time he's practiced since dislocating his hip in training camp. Because of how much time he's missed, it's going to take a while for Pitta to get back into playing shape. We'd be surprised to see him back before Week 14.
 
9/4/2013 5:53:00 PM
Description: The Ravens placed tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) on injured reserve/designated to return.
Insight: That leaves the door open for Pitta to return Week 9, even though he likely won't be back until much later than that, if at all. The tight end suffered a fractured hip early in training camp.

Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta underwent surgery on his broken hip Saturday and will now miss the entire 2013 season. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: First Jeremy Maclin goes down and now Pitta ... when did training camp become so dangerous? This is a really tough pill to swallow for the Ravens as Pitta was a major part of the team's passing game last season (61 catches, seven TD) and was expected to play an even bigger role in 2013. Now Ed Dickson (21 grabs, 225 yards last season) will have to play most of the snaps at tight end for Baltimore.
 
7/27/2013 7:07:00 PM
Description: Baltimore tight end Dennis Pitta has been diagnosed with a dislocated hip. SOURCE: Ravens on Twitter
Insight: He's already been ruled out for the season opener at Denver. Ed Dickson will have to pick up the slack while Pitta is out.
 
7/27/2013 4:08:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was carted off the field during Saturday's practice after colliding with safety James Ihedigbo, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Insight: Pitta caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven scores on 94 targets last year, and he's due for a major boost in production with Anquan Boldin gone. His injury is unknown at this time.
 
12/16/2012 7:23:00 PM
Description: With the Broncos up big Sunday in Baltimore, Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was able to boost his stat line with a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns.
Insight: Pitta produced a career-high 125 receiving yards Sunday against Denver. His seven touchdown catches this season (also a personal best) ranks fifth among NFL tight ends.
 
11/23/2012 8:42:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta has passed all his concussion tests and is ready to play Sunday against the Chargers.
Insight: Pitta is very close to eclipsing his receiving totals from last season and Baltimore still has six games left to play. We're projecting him to have a solid week against San Diego's 19th-ranked pass defense.
 
11/20/2012 12:05:00 PM
Description: Baltimore tight end Dennis Pitta is doubtful for Sunday's game against San Diego due to a concussion
Insight: Pitta will need to pass all his concussion tests this week if he wants to play Sunday. After a hot early-season run, Pitta has been kept under control of late with just one touchdown catch over the last eight games.
 
11/19/2012 9:21:00 AM
Description: Baltimore tight end Dennis Pitta suffered a concussion Sunday night in a win over Pittsburgh.
Insight: Pitta will need to pass all his concussion tests this week if he wants to play Sunday against the Chargers. Pitta had just one catch for five yards before leaving the game.
 
11/12/2012 10:49:00 AM
Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta had his best game since Week 3 Sunday against the Raiders, catching five passes for 67 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Pitta looked to be emerging as a potential TE1 in the first three weeks of the season but his production has fallen off a cliff since then. He'll try to keep things going in the right direction in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
 
9/17/2012 4:24:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight ends Dennis Pitta leads all tight ends in targets so far this season with 24 passes thrown his way which resulted in 13 receptions for 138 yards and a score.
Insight: The fact that Pitta has seen the ball more than Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski or any other tight end is certainly surprising and bodes well for him as a fantasy contributor over the next few months if this level continues.
 
9/5/2012 2:31:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson are both listed as questionable for the Week 1 game with Cincinnati.
Insight: Pitta caught 40 balls for 405 yards and three touchdowns last season while splitting playing time. If both are out, it will hurt quarterback Joe Flacco's numbers. If only one plays, they could become fantasy-worthy.
 
8/2/2012 1:20:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta is expected to miss most of training camp and the exhibition season, but should be back in time for Week 1 according to the team.
Insight: Pitta (40-405-3) stole fantasy value from Ed Dickson (54-528-5) in 2011 and this injury doesn't appear to change anything. Unless one of the two becomes the every down tight end, neither is a fantasy-worthy starter.
