Heads up Baltimore Ravens’ fans, another problem has occurred for the Ravens starting lineup.
Dennis Pitta appears to have suffered a dislocated hip at training camp today and could be out for the season for fear of a hip fracture.
Best case scenario Pitta is out only for the September 5th opener and can gradually work back. Worst case scenario Pitta is out for the season and ends up a free agent with one year out.
This is trouble not only for the thinned out Ravens, but also for fantasy football teams across the nation. While Pitta was not a star point earner, he consistently scored points and made receptions which amounted to wins for the Ravens and a base for the fantasy owners.
The Ravens lost eight key players after last year’s Super Bowl win. These players include Anquan Boldin, Ed Reed, and Ray Lewis. With Boldin gone, there is no clear receiver across from Torey Smith. This absence was to be remedied by extensive use of Pitta and without their star tight end, the Ravens may officially be finished for this season.
Pitta is said to have collided with James Ihedigbo on a jump ball in the endzone. Trainers carted Pitta off and he was said to be in surgery tonight and doctors will inform the team of their findings. No word on when the team will make a statement, however needless to say keep Pitta in your prayers. Especially the Baltimore Ravens’ fans, because Pitta could be the straw to break the camel’s back.
