Pitta dislocated and fractured his hip for the second time a year ago and has been trying to work his way back onto the field. He has been doing some work off to the side of practice but is not able to participate with his teammates at this time.
“A couple of things are going to have to happen for him to play, ultimately,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “No. 1, he is going to have to be cleared by the doctors. No. 2 is he’s going to have decide he wants to play because obviously there is going to be some risk involved.”
Pitta is trying to return from surgeries to repair a fractured and dislocated hip in each of the last two seasons. His playing status for the 2015 season is still undecided.
"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. I know what it felt like to do this one time. I've never known what it felt like to do it twice."
Pitta has undergone surgeries to repair a fractured and dislocated hip in each of the last two years.
"We still have some time to be able to assess where I'm at," Pitta told the Baltimore Sun. "I sure hope that I'll be on the field next year. That's my hope; that's my goal. We'll just see if I can get there."
Pitta has played in just seven games in the last two seasons combined.
Speaking at the NFL owners meetings, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said there isn't an update on Pitta's future but that the organization will learn more about his status this summer, via WNST.
Pitta dislocated and fractured his hip early during the 2014 season, suffering the same injury he sustained during Baltimore's training camp in 2013. The injury is significant enough that there is a chance Pitta decides to retire.
"In the end it's going to be up to Dennis," Harbaugh said, via The Baltimore Sun.
