According to Wilson, the Ravens emphasized that he has “no cartilage or ligament damage,” which is at least a fairly positive sign. “It’s not procedural,” said HC John Harbaugh when asked about Pitta possibly returning this season. “As far as coming back? When we saw there was no ligament or structural damage in there, it gave us hope.” The Ravens have already signed two veteran tight ends in Visanthe Shiancoe and Dallas Clark.

Dallas Clark still has a lot left in the tank for Ravens...

Monday the Ravens announced the signing of veteran free agent tight end Dallas Clark. I thought this might be a no-brainer for Ozzie Newsome, given the injuries and sudden lack of depth of experienced tight ends---not just blockers, but guys who can make big receptions under game pressure.
