Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he is hopeful that TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will be able to play in the team's Week 14 game.
Huddle Up: Good news, but it's probably a good idea to wait and see what he can do before sticking him in your lineup.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said the team will decide whether to activate TE Dennis Pitta (hip) from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list later in the week.
Huddle Up: Don't hold your breath—even if he does return, it might take him a couple of weeks to get back to form—but watch out for some news here.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was able to take part in the walkthrough practice Monday, Nov. 25, although he has already been ruled out for the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Pitta, who has been out all season, is a TE to keep an eye on for the fantasy playoffs if you're desperate at the position.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is not expected to be activated from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list before the team's Week 12 game. Pitta participated in individual drills during practice this week but wants to take his time before returning. Pitta may be able to return for the final four games of the season unless he suffers a setback.
Huddle Up: Pitta is probably still a couple of weeks away from returning to the field. He could help owners during fantasy playoffs, so he's worth picking up and stashing if you have the roster room.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said there is a chance TE Dennis Pitta (hip) plays in the team's Week 12 game. Pitta would have to be placed on the team's active roster first.
Huddle Up: There's a chance but it's really a slim one as Harbaugh plays some games with Rex Ryan and the opposing Jets this week. Look for Pitta in the coming weeks, though, spelling an end to Dallas Clark's run as Baltimore's starting TE.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he is not sure when TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will be able to play again. Harbaugh said Pitta's safety is the most important thing at this point.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he is interested in seeing when TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will be able to return to practice. Harbaugh said he has not been told when Pitta will be able to get back on the field.
Huddle Up: At this point, it's not looking good for Pitta to make any sort of impact on your fantasy team.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has not suffered any setbacks and is on track to return to the team at some point in November.
Huddle Up: It depends on when in November he would be back, but Pitta is certainly worth a speculative add if you have issues at tight end. He might not be available until late in the fantasy season, but he could be a nice playoff boost for you if you need one.

The Baltimore Ravens are not expecting TE Dennis Pitta (hip) to return until mid-to-late November. Pitta is working out regularly but his return to the field is not imminent.
Huddle Up: For fantasy purposes, Pitta's season is all but over -- the exception, of course, are those playing in dynasty leagues.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is scheduled to meet with a hip specialist this week to determine if he has a chance to play at some point this season.
Huddle Up: Even if Pitta can come back late, it's doubtful he will have any fantasy impact.

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has a fractured hip and will miss the 2013 season.
Huddle Up: In short, another personnel blow for the defending champs and a brutal break for one of fantasy's rising TEs.

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta is expected to miss the entire 2013 season because of the dislocated hip he suffered Saturday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Pitta was expected to pick up much of the production vacated by Anquan Boldin's departure; now the Ravens will lean on Torrey Smith and Ed Dickson and see who else can step up amongst their receivers.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has kept up his strong connection with TE Dennis Pitta during mandatory minicamp. Throwing the ball to Pitta looks like Flacco's default read in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Pitta has seen his receiving stats increase in each of his 3 seasons, hitting career highs of 61-669-7 in 2012. Expect another jump this year with trusted WR target Anquan Boldin no longer around.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta should see more time in the slot with WR Anquan Boldin gone.
Huddle Up: The presumption is that Pitta will step into some of the production left by Boldin's departure, perhaps even enough to make Pitta a reliable weekly fantasy play at tight end.

Baltimore Ravens impending restricted free agent TE Dennis Pitta is expected to receive a second-round tender from the team. That could prompt an offer sheet from an opposing team, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. If the Ravens were to pay another $856,000, they would eliminate any risk of an offer sheet by assigning a first-round tender to Pitta. The Ravens are in a bad salary cap situation though, and may have to take a chance with the second-round tender.
Huddle Up: The Ravens have work to do to stay under the cap and still retain key members of their Super Bowl championship team. They can't spring for the extra money to keep Pitta, but teams won't be quick to part with a second-rounder so the Ravens could still find a way to keep Pitta around. At times last season Pitta was a quality fantasy producer, and he'd benefit if fellow tight end Ed Dickson--tendered at a lower level--found a new home for 2013.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (thigh) said Tuesday, Jan. 29, he is feeling much better and is set to start in Super Bowl XLVII Sunday, Feb. 3, against the San Francisco 49ers. 'I feel good, everything is on schedule,' Pitta said. 'I'm trying to get as healthy as possible for this game. It's something I got to get treatment on. I want to make sure it doesn't get worse. I'll be ready.'
Huddle Up: Pitta is a key weapon for QB Joe Flacco as he keeps opposing safeties concerned about the middle of the field instead of helping out over the top covering WRs Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (thigh) did not take part in practice Friday, Jan. 25. Officially, he is listed as questionable for Super Bowl XLIV against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Feb. 3.
Huddle Up: With 10 catches for 137 yards and a pair of scores this postseason, Pitta is key cog in the Ravens' offense and having the TE close to full health next Sunday will be vital to Baltimore's BIg Game chances.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta will start in Week 14 against the Washington Redskins with TE Ed Dickson (knee) sidelined.
Huddle Up: Pitta has been off (1 catch, 5 yards in Week 11 and 1-19 in Week 13) and on (5- 67, TD in Week 10 and 6-42, TD in Week 12) over the past month, and if the trend continues, he'll be on Sunday against the Skins who, coincidentally, are the league's worst defense against opposing TEs.
