Now, with further testing it's feared that Dennis Pitta does have a fracture. He did dislocate it

He's 29 and possibly just had his second dislocated and fractured hip in the space of two years. It's not just potentially season ending. Crying or Very sad

Terrible thing to happen, for Pitta and for the Ravens. I hope he can recover again, but an injury like this? Each time it reoccurs, he might be weakening the joint dangerously.

Well, he's prone to suffering the same injury at least. If his hip joint just keeps getting weaker... Yuck. I agree with Mancunian if it fractured again. My hope was it just looked bad but wasn't too serious because of the non-contact but that seems less likely to be the case right now.

Dennis Pitta will undergo surgery to repair the damage to his dislocated right hip and also has a fracture, team sources believe


Looks like the fracture is all but confirmed. Unfortunately, this could potentially be the end of his NFL Career. Hopefully he can come back, but from what I've been seeing online, this could be it for him. Wish him the best in his recovery.

When Pitta underwent surgery on his hip last year, doctors told the former Ravens fourth-round draft pick that the chance of recurrence was extremely low because of the rarity of the injury and how well the procedure and rehabilitation went.

Well, now it has reoccurred, I imagine that the chances of successful rehab and being able to play again are much lower.

I love Dennis Pitta, but if he's risking his long term health, he should just walk away. Not only will the joint be weakened, but there are a lot of important blood vessels and nerves in that area, that could be damaged by trauma to the hip.

And just rereading this article about the first injury, makes me so sad that he had to go through it again:

http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/Byrne-Identity-Dennis-Pitta-Talks-Excruciating-Injury-Coming-Back/cc360586-d5dd-4820-a8fa-3096a7138a5d

You know that, as soon as it happened, he knew exactly what it was, and what he was going to have to go through, all over again.

Back to square one with the TE situation. Great. And after next year we're back to square one at WR as well. Fantastic.

Obviously his long term ability to play is in question. IF he can't return to field or return to being the same guy, I still don't regret the big extension we just gave him.

In the SB run, he had TDs against the Colts, Pats, and 49ers. Against Denver had one of the biggest and most underrated plays in Ravens' history:

Without that play to help us flip the field, it would have been extremely hard to keep them out of FG range, and have Manning press like he did in throwing the pick after they got the ball.

I'm optimistic about this not being as crippling as it was for our offense last year. Pitta was the only shifty guy who could get open on underneath routes. We couldn't convert with quick passes on 3rd down without that.

Now we have Smith Sr and he knows how to get open. Might even try some Campanaro in those spots.

Not to mention Daniels is actually able to catch a football unlike Dickson and Clark were.

Him being out sucks but we are definitely more able to handle it this season. As for his long-term outlook, I think it may be best for him to just hang em up unfortunately. I love Pitta but it's clear it's not going to be right moving forward, especially if that happens on a non-contact play.
