Originally written August 06, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
It’s not a season-ending injury like the one starter Dennis Pitta suffered, but the Baltimore Ravens will be without tight end Ed Dickson for a couple of weeks as he recovers from a slightly torn hamstring, the team has announced. TE Ed Dickson has a slight hamstring tear and will be out a couple of weeks. — Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) August 5, 2013 Following the news of the injury, head coach John Harbaugh was vague when he told reporters that he expects to have Dickson back in “a matter of time,” but he did limit that span by saying he doesn’t expect it to be a “long time” and adding that he believes the tight end will be ready for the start of the regular season. Harbaugh on Dickson: "It’s going to be a matter of time, but it’s not going to be a long time.” — Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) August 5, 2013 Considering Dickson is dealing with a hamstring injury, the Ravens will likely take things slow with his recovery leading up to the regular season. If Dickson doesn’t receive the proper treatment and rest, this is an injury that could linger throughout the season, and it could cause Dickson to miss an even more extended stretch if aggravated. With Pitta sidelined for the season due to a hip injury, the Ravens next tight end is former Minnesota Vikings’ Visanthe Shiancoe, who was signed by the team just last week.

  • This is no big deal Dickson has trouble catching a cold. Pita should be insulted. The Ravens thing this guy is next man up - NOT.
