Dennis Pitta: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Pitta (hip) implied that he isn't yet sure whether his injury might be career-ending, WBAL 1090 reports. "Iím going to do everything I can in my rehab in trying to get better to get back on the field," Pitta said. "Thatís how Iím going to approach it and try to get back to full strength. When we get to that point, weíll see where Iím at and be able to make those decisions. Right now for me, itís just focus on getting healthy and getting back to where I need to be.Ē

A second hip dislocation in two years has led to speculation that Pitta may not play again. According to an earlier report from The Baltimore Sun, Pitta will carry added risk of suffering a third dislocation if he makes it back to the field next season. He's facing a long rehab process, so he won't have to make a decision anytime soon.
Pitta (hip) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Tuesday's move was primarily procedural, as Pitta was ruled out for the season a day earlier. Phillip Supernaw was promoted from the practice squad to take Pitta's place on the roster.

2014

2013

After sharing tight-end targets with Ed Dickson in 2011, Pitta exerted his superiority over his position-mate last season with 94 targets to Dickson's 33 and posted career highs across the board. And those numbers came in essentially 14 games Ė Pitta suffered a concusion after one snap in Week 11 and played only 11 snaps in a meaningless Week 17. Pitta's developed a nice on-field rapport with Joe Flacco, his off-field friend and road-trip roommate. Pitta was especially effective running the post in the red zone and finished with seven regular-season touchdowns, before adding three more in the playoffs. Pitta's biggest strength might be his route-running, which makes it difficult for bigger defenders to stay with him in coverage. This season, Baltimore will be without the services of Anquan Boldin and his 112 targets, meaning Pitta could play an even larger role in the passing attack, particularly in the red zone. Pitta had only 13 red-zone targets a year ago, but could see some of Boldenís nine directed his way in 2013.

2012

Pitta worked his way into a bigger role in the offense as last season progressed, getting five of his six red-zone targets and all three of his touchdowns in the final nine games. He also added a touchdown in the playoffs. Other than Ed Dicksonís 14-target performance Week 10 in Seattle, Pitta received a similar number of targets and receiving yards in the second half of the season. An injury to one would greatly increase the value of the other, but for now it appears theyíll share targets, making neither a particularly attractive fantasy play.

2011

With Todd Heap gone, Pitta should see the field more often. Still, coaches regard Ed Dickson as a much higher upside tight end prospect. If Pitta sees regular playing time, it will likely be in a platoon.

2010

Pitta and Ed Dickson were both drafted as great pass-catching tight ends to compete with Todd Heap. Neither is expected to take over a starting spot just yet, though coaches are very high on their abilities. Pitta doesn't have the athleticism of Dickson, but is currently the better blocker which could allow him to see the field quicker.
