Dennis Pitta's MRI Reveals Good News

Posted Jul 29, 2013

The tight end did not suffer any ligament damage, and a full recovery is expected.

Dennis Pitta and the Ravens have received a bit of good news after getting the results on the tight end’s hip injury suffered over the weekend. 

Pitta will still miss the entire 2013 season, but an MRI on his hip showed that he should be able to make a full recovery from the injury. 

“There’s no ligament damage, no cartilage damage,” Head Coach John Harbaugh announced Monday. 

“It’s a clean break if you want to use that term, and he should be rehabbing in six to eight weeks. So, it’s good news.”

In addition to dislocating the hip, Pitta also suffered a fracture.

“The good news is that there’s a fracture, but it’s in the back part of the bone, and it’s in the big part of the bone, and it’s a very tight fracture. So, it didn’t move at all,” Harbaugh said.

Pitta suffered the injury Saturday on a pass play in the back of the end zone. He went up to make a catch and then landed on his knee, which jarred back and dislocated his hip. Pitta was carted off the field and went right into surgery to put the bone back into place.

“Basically, the ball was pushed out of the socket and pushed backwards,” Harbaugh said. “It’s an injury that happens a lot of times in car accidents. He got his knee caught up under him in an awkward way when he fell.”

The injury is rare for the football field, and Harbaugh said he’s only seen eight documented cases of similar injuries. While the injury will cost Pitta this season, the Ravens fully expect Pitta to make a return to the football field. 

“Nothing has changed as far as our plans as far as the season goes,” Harbaugh said.  “We want him to be back in the future at 100 percent.”
