“I did get kind of an overview of that report from our trainer that I wouldn’t really want to share until Dennis has had a chance to kind of consider all of the ramifications of it,” Harbaugh told the paper. “But I think we’ll have something on that in a couple of weeks, kind of on Dennis’ time frame. We’ll see where that goes.”
Harbaugh said earlier he was "cautiously optimistic" about Pitta resuming his career, but added the priority is that Pitta be “totally healthy” and “totally safe."
"Everything I've been told, and I've got to be honest with you, it was surprising to me because my assumption would be, 'Wow, this twice in a row, it's going to be tough,' but they say it has no bearing on the future," Harbaugh said. "If he feels 100 percent, Dennis can play again."
"It’s tough," Pitta said. "I have to be patient right now, I have to let myself heal and take it one day at a time and begin my rehab and work hard doing that when I can. It’s a tough process and something, unfortunately, I have been through before and will get through again.
"In a few months, we’ll see how I’m feeling and how things are going and we’ll be able to make some determinations then," Pitta said. "It’s still too early to kind of tell, and I’ll continue on like I did last year and get myself ready to get back on the field."
In Week 3 against the Browns, Pitta fractured and dislocated his hip for the second straight year.
