NFL Injury Report:
The Baltimore Ravens have placed tight end, Dennis Pitta, on
the injured reserve-designated for return list, reports Jamison
Hensley of ESPN.com
The IR-DFR list rules can be a little
tricky. A player placed on the IR-DFR
list can resume practicing no earlier than six weeks after placement on the
list. They can return to the active roster eight weeks after being placed on
the list. A team can only use this
designation for one player per season.
Pitta fractured his hip early in training camp but tests
showed no ligament damage. This is a
positive since it may allow Pitta to return later on in the season.
Pitta’s production will be missed. Last season, Pitta had 61 grabs for 669 yards
and seven touchdowns. More importantly,
Pitta had a solid playoff run with 14 catches and three touchdowns, including a
1-yard touchdown catch in the Super Bowl.
However, with Ed Dickson coming back and the additions of TE
Dallas Clark and wide receiver Brandon Stokley, the Ravens’ passing attack
should be more than adequate.
With the open roster spot, the Ravens opened the cage and
re-signed TE, Billy Bajema. Bajema will
be used as a blocking TE; steam-shoveling holes open for running back, Ray
Rice and company.

The Baltimore Ravens take on the Denver Broncos Thursday
night. Who is out? Who is in? Find out, in your Baltimore Ravens
Week 1 injury report.
First, let me explain what some of the designations mean for
those new to NFL team injury reports. “Out”
means that the player will not play in this week’s game while “doubtful” means there
is a 25% chance the player will...
It looks like Ravens tight end Ed Dickson should be ready for their Thursday night opener against the Broncos after dealing with a hamstring injury. He fully participated in Monday’s practice, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver/kick returner Jacoby Jones was shaken up on a collision with a teammate during the second quarter of Thursday night’s NFL season opener. Jones, back to receive a punt from the Broncos, called a fair catch before being plowed into by an undrafted rookie teammate. Both players were pretty oblivious to each other and took a while to figure out what the...
Adam Schefter started SportsCenter this morning by coming out to Ray Lewis’ spastic “squirrel” dance. Thanks for that disturbing image, ESPN. Given that Ray Rice has been trying to convince Ray Lewis to make the trip to Denver to fire up the Ravens, let’s just be thankful if this is the only time today we see Ray-Ray’s shtick on display.
With the season opener just days away, the Baltimore Ravens Facebook page posted the above inspirational quote from Joe Flacco. Did I say inspirational? I meant kind of boring and long-winded. But it’s presented as though it’s supposed to be inspiring. Are the Ravens good? Who knows, but they do feel like they’re good, but in a measured way that doesn’t get carried away with...

The 2013 NFL season kicks off tonight as the Baltimore Ravens face off against the Denver Broncos. The Ravens broke the hearts of Broncos fans everywhere back in the playoffs on their way to the Super Bowl, just like Dana Grady Flacco and Ashley Thompson Manning break the hearts of guys who realize their married to ultra rich NFL quarterbacks. Check out some photos of...
The Ravens and Broncos kick-off the NFL season Thursday night in Denver. The Ravens won the Super Bowl last year and needed a huge missed play by the Broncos defense in order to get there.
- Step 1 - The Ravens signed Joe Flacco to a huge contract after winning the Super Bowl, good for him. Now comes the reality check. Flacco lost his trusted WR and TE this offseason...
Ever since the NFL announced that the champion Ravens would open the season at Denver, the Broncos have been salivating over a chance to get back at Baltimore.
That opportunity comes Thursday night in the Mile High City, where the Ravens staged that sensational late comeback in the divisional playoff game last January before beating the Broncos in double overtime.
Anyone who says...

The regular season is finally. On Thursday night (September 5) the Baltimore Ravens visit the Denver Broncos.
NBC will carry the game from Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, CO beginning at 8:30 pm.
While analysts will bill this as a “Super Bowl winning Ravens team” the truth is the Ravens roster has turned over...
The Baltimore Ravens may be the Super Bowl champions, but they are certainly not Super Bowl favorites to win this season’s big game. After an offseason of losing high-profile players, the Ravens will be put to a major test when they play the Denver Broncos later tonight.
Yes, it’s early, but it’s never too early to start figuring out where teams stand. It’s assumed that...

To open the season, the football Gods have graced us with a rematch of last year’s divisional round game between the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens.

It’s Wednesday and you would swear it is Christmas around here.It’s 95 degrees and we are all sweating bullets, so no, it’s not the holiday season. But it could be because football is back, alive and well across the nation tomorrow night.My prayers have been answered. After following teams in rookie camps, practices, OTA, training camps and preseason, the “real” NFL is...
It seems as if it was eons ago when the Baltimore Ravens hoisted the Lombardi Trophy last February. Hardcore football fans began the countdown the next morning as to when the greatest game would return to the gridiron. It was 213 days until today, September 5th, the start of the NFL regular season.
For myself, I have to say that it was the quickest offseason I’ve ever experienced...
