    Ravens' Dennis Pitta: Acknowledges he may have to retire

    Pitta (hip) acknowledged that he has begun to think about life after football, but he also said that he still has a desire to play, the Ravens' official website reports. Pitta missed the entire 2015 season after dislocating his left hip in both 2013 and 2014. He practiced for a few weeks in late October and early November, but doctors ultimately recommended that he sit out the entire season. If he were to resume his career, Pitta would be at increased risk of suffering additional hip injuries, which could lead to serious health problems later in life. Also, the Ravens no longer have need of a tight end, as second-year pro Crockett Gillmore and rookie Maxx Williams appear to have the team in good hands at the position. Pitta will give it another shot in a few months, but it won't be surprising if he ultimately shifts his focus to either coaching or a non-football career.

    Ravens place TE Dennis Pitta (hip) on Reserve-PUP list

    Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was placed on the team's Reserve-PUP list Tuesday, meaning the tight end could return to the roster in Week 7, per ESPN.com. However, coach John Harbaugh isn't banking on a return. "As far as I'm concerned, you plan for the worst and you hope for the best," Harbaugh said Tuesday, per ESPN.com. "I'm planning on him not being back. That would be the plan from a football standpoint. And I think he's planning on being back. "It just comes down to whether it's a smart thing to do, whether it's what he wants to do and really what his family wants to do. He and his wife have to make that decision for themselves, and he's going to get more information I'm sure." Pitta has been limited to just seven games over the last two seasons after twice dislocating his hip, and the team wants to bring him along slowly. However, the reports suggests a midseason return in optimistic, given Pitta has not been cleared by doctors or been allowed to practice.

    Report: Ravens TE Dennis Pitta expected to begin year on PUP list

    It remains unclear if Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta will play again in the NFL, as he attempts a second comeback from a fractured and dislocated right hip, according to The Baltimore Sun. He is expected to begin training camp and the regular season on the physically unable to perform list, sources said. If he begins the season on the PUP list, then he will miss at least the first six games. Pitta has yet to be medically cleared to practice. He is able to do some route running and individual drills, but he wasn't alowed to fully participate in offseason practices. "A couple of things are going to have to happen for him to play ultimately," coach John Harbaugh said during minicamp in June. "No. 1, he has to be cleared by the doctors. And, No. 2, he has to decide if he wants to play because obviously there will be some risk involved. He hasn't been cleared by the doctors. "As you've seen before, he's been doing the individual part of practice. Minicamp, unless you're cleared, you can't come out to practice. I don't know if that's a rule or our policy, but that's the way it goes. Until he gets cleared by the docs, he won't be able to practice and we'll just have to see where that goes from here."

    Ravens' Dennis Pitta confident he'll return from injury

    Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta is returning from his second hip dislocation and fracture in the last two years. He said he's "optimistic" that he'll be back for the season. "I feel good, but obviously, it's a process," Pitta said, per NFL.com. "I have an idea in mind of where I'd like to be in a couple months, but at the same time you don't know.
