It was a rough week for the Ravens, having dealt with several major injuries during organized team activities. Dennis Pitta re-injured his hip while stretching for a catch, its the same injury that has caused him to miss three of the last four seasons. The team fears that the injury is severe and his career will likely end, which is a big blow to the Baltimore’s offense. Last year he caught 86 passes, the most by a Ravens tight end ever and he was named a second alternate for the Pro-Bowl. Now without Steve Smith Sr, Kamar Aiken and now Pitta next season the Ravens are missing 345 targets from last year’s offense.
Fear is Ravens TE Dennis Pitta fractured and dislocated his hip for third time in four years. If so, NFL career likely would be over.

Just A week ago, Pitta said “I am not getting as many questions about my hip; that is one difference, I feel good. I got to have a full offseason of just normal preparation and It feels good to be feeling healthy.” Along with 86 receptions totaling 729 receiving yards, he also played in all 16 games and received a team-high 119 targets. Fortunately for Baltimore, they have a ton of depth at the position starting with veteran Ben Watson. Along with Watson, the tight end position is filled with young promising players in Maxx Williams, Crockett Gillmore, Nick Boyle and Darren Waller.
