Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is participating in the team's voluntary conditioning program that started Monday, April 20. Pitta's career remains in doubt after fracturing his right hip twice in the past two seasons and the Ravens don't expect to know his availability for the 2015 season until the summer.
Huddle Up: Even if he returns to full health for the start of the 2015 season Pitta won't have nearly the fantasy value with Gary Kubiak's tight end-friendly offense relocating to Denver in the offseason.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is trying to work his way back from a second hip dislocation. 'I'm praying that Dennis comes back and he's healthy enough and they come to a solution and he feels comfortable,' team owner Steve Bisciotti said this week.
Huddle Up: With Owen Daniels having departed for Denver and 2014 third-round pick Crockett Gillmore currently topping the depth chart, the Ravens could certainly use Pitta, but it remains to be seen if the TE will be able to battle back from his major hip issues. We'll know a little more if the Ravens use a high draft pick on a TE.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is a question mark entering the 2015 season, and head coach John Harbaugh was noncommittal about Pitta's status a couple of weeks ago. The team will likely address the situation in the offseason because TE Crockett Gillmore is the only other tight end under contract.
Huddle Up: A 2015 return from Pitta would certainly be headline worthy, but it's certainly not anything the Ravens can bank on given that he's played a total of seven games over the last two seasons and is coming off major surgery.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will visit a couple specialists this week regarding his dislocated hip. Pitta says he's cautiously optimistic. Head coach John Harbaugh has already expressed that Pitta is expected to make a full recovery and play again next season.
Huddle Up: The recurring hip issues have limited Pitta to seven total games over the last two seasons, and it will quite a comeback if he suits up in purple in 2015.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) may never be able to play football again after two surgeries on a fractured and dislocated hip in as many seasons.
Huddle Up: Too soon to rule out Pitta for good, but this latest injury is definitely a career-threatener.

The Baltimore Ravens placed TE Dennis Pitta (hip) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Sept. 23, officially ending the tight end's season.
Huddle Up: Rugged turn of events for Pitta, who went down on a non-contact play Sunday. Look for Owen Daniels, who was with offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak in Houston, to assume most of the TE workload. Daniels had a big Week 2 with a pair of TD grabs but has only 5 receptions for 42 yards in the Ravens' other 2 contests.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) also has a fracture in his right hip, according to a source. Pitta will likely undergo surgery for the dislocated and fractured hip.
Huddle Up: Pitta will miss the rest of the 2014 season. Owen Daniels is now the Ravens starting tight end. He's nothing more than a middling TE2, although his value increases in TD heavy leagues.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) suffered a dislocated hip in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He will have tests Monday, Sept. 22, to check for a possible fracture.
Huddle Up: Owen Daniels will be the Ravens starting tight end if Pitta misses time. Daniels is nothing more than a TE2 but he has more value in TD heavy leagues.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta has been in constant motion in formations during the offseason practices. He's expected to line up in tight end alignments, split out wide and in the backfield.
Huddle Up: This sounds good for Pitta's fantasy value, but no need to push him up between Gronk and Graham just yet; after all, the Ravens still have Gary Kubiak favorite Owen Daniels and rookie Crockett Gilmore. He's solid with upside, but that puts him in a big pile of TEs on fantasy draft day.
