According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Dennis Pitta will miss the entire season due to a dislocated hip (Credit: USA Today) During the team’s practice this afternoon, Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was carted off the field. The team’s official Twitter later announced that Pitta has a dislocated hip. Initial reports were that Pitta may only miss six weeks and only the team’s first game against the Denver Broncos. Now, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Pitta will actually miss the entire season due to the dislocated hip. Pitta is in the last year of his contract with the Baltimore Ravens. Pitta and the Ravens could work out a long-term deal or they could place their franchise tag on him following this season. If Pitta is truly out for the season, this will deliver another blow to an already weakened receiving corps. Last season, Pitta was third on the team in receiving yards, second in receptions, third in targets and second in receiving touchdowns. As the Ravens traded Anquan Boldin this off-season, they cannot afford to lose another receiver. The Ravens back up, Ed Dickson, had 21 receptions for 225 yards last season. The post Report: Dennis Pitta is done for the year appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE - Presented by Sports-Kings.
