Found July 27, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:

Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta dislocated his hip during Saturday’s practice and was carted off the field according to Baltimore Ravens staff writer Garrett Downing. The injury is serious enough that the team has already ruled Pitta out for the season opener and he could be out longer. According to the team’s website, Pitta collided with Ravens safety James Ihedigbo in the back of the end zone. The fourth year tight end was being counted on to replace a large chunk of the production left by the departure of wide receiver Anquan Boldin. Pitta proved a valuable commodity during the Ravens Super Bowl run last season as he finished the postseason with 14 receptions for 163 yards and 3 touchdowns. While Pitta was clearly the #1 tight end for Baltimore, this injury doesn’t leave the cupboards bare for the coaching staff. Fellow tight end Ed Dickson was drafted the same year as Pitta out of the University of Oregon. Dickson has 75 catches over the past two seasons and will surely be counted on to step up big for the defending champions. UPDATE: As per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Dennis Pitta will need surgery for his dislocated hip and will miss the entire 2013 season. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
