Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta re-injures his hip

AP

Dennis Pitta completed a comeback few expected last year, but has had a setback this year.

The Ravens announced that the veteran tight end re-injured his hip during Friday’s Organized Team Activity session, and is being evaluated to determine the severity of the injury now.

The team put out a statement from General Manager Ozzie Newsome calling it “unfortunate news.”

“Dennis is one of the great Ravens, and he has done everything he can to make our team better,” Newsome said.

Pitta returned from a series of serious hip problems last year and caught 86 passes, a career high and the most by any tight end in franchise history.

    Sorry to hear this, he had a great comeback last year. This will probably end his career.

    What a shock!

    The bell tolls for thee, Whinebaugh.

    Please stop holding Joe’s hand and retire while you can still walk your daughter down the isle someday!

    Great guy but he should have retired after hurting his hip the second time. It’s his decision of course but why risk never walking again when you’re already financially set and have a ring?!

    That’s too bad. He’s a great player. Hope he is ok.

    Dude…..hang it up…..play with your kids & make sure you’re able to walk in 10 years. You’re a stud & a warrior….we get it…….now be smart & walk away.

    Stick a fork in him. He’s done.

  8. bobthebillsfan says: Jun 2, 2017 3:36 PM

    I’ve always admired him and his work ethic.

  9. harrisonhits2 says: Jun 2, 2017 3:37 PM

    That’s a shame he’s a great player and one of the better TEs when healthy.

    “Hello, this is Ozzie Newsome. I would like to speak to the agent who represents Gary Barnidge”

    If that line hasn’t already been spoken it will any minute now.

    Damn, that’s tough. Can’t see him coming back from that. Thanx for your dedication to the game, now go enjoy ya family while you still can. You’ll always have a home here Pitt!

    Time to call it a career, he already has a ring and nothing else is left to prove.

  14. MichaelEdits says: Jun 2, 2017 3:50 PM

    Lots of injuries every year during “non-contact” drills.

    Maybe if the arrogant Ravens learned how to draft in Rd 1 or Rd 2 the last 7 or 8 years, they wouldn’t be relying on a TE who was cooked 3 years ago.

    Me pointing out the football gods watching the CHEATING RAVENS WORKING WITH GOODELL TO LIE AND CHEAT, in conjunction with other franchises, is not “taking pleasure”.

    Talk to the football gods, big mouth.

    You barked up the wrong tree supporting your cheating owner and coach.

    Pitta, you have had a long career, but it has come to an end.

  22. xinellum says: Jun 2, 2017 3:59 PM

    And the Ravens could have had OJ Howard and turned him down at 16. Ozzie put the screws to Harbaugh this year and if Ozzie wanted to get rid of his coach, he couldn’t have had a better (worse) draft than to do nothing but acquire defensive players when the offense was the problem last year. Flacco is not a QB who can carry a team, we lost 4 offensive players, including 2 skill positions and 2 lineman and have done nothing in free agency or the draft to replace them. Even as a Ravens fan, they will be a joke this year.

    Leave it to the Pats trolls to celebrate injuries on players NOT on the Patriots. This is why everyone wishes injury on Brady so we can how bad Belichick is without Brady.

    A 7-9 team, but a quality 7-9 team.

    A troll (with a fake user name, not a patriots fan) calling someone else a troll.

    Oh the irony…

    Actually, troll….NE would win at least 10 games starting next year with JimmyG. With Brady, it’s 12 minimum.

    Enjoy!

    Everyone on PFT knows the real turd in this race…..even the Pat’s fans are embarrassed by you classless obtuse comments. Worst bandwagon Pat’s fan….since 2000

  30. edgerules says: Jun 2, 2017 5:55 PM

    People should not cheer for injuries, and I don’t care what team the player plays for.

    Anyway, I hope that Pitta recovers soon, and makes the best decision for himself and his family. The man seemed to have been a class act. Good luck and God bless.
