Ravens Promote Tight End Philip Supernaw, Put Dennis Pitta On Injured Reserve


The Ravens have made a move to fill tight end Dennis Pitta's spot on the 53-man roster.

Tight end Phillip Supernaw was called up from the practice squad to the active roster, and Pitta was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Pitta re-injured his surgically repaired right hip on a non-contact play during Sunday's victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Supernaw, 24, came to Baltimore in May after spending the last two years with the Houston Texans. Supernaw went undrafted in 2012 and was primarily a practice squad player for the Texans. He did have a brief stint on Houston's active roster last season and played in one game without registering any stats.

While Supernaw's game experience is limited, he does have a good understanding of the system that Offensive Coordinator Gary Kubiak runs. He was a popular target of quarterback Joe Flacco during training camp, but he didn't have any receptions in the preseason.

Supernaw joins Owen Daniels and Crockett Gillmore as the three tight ends on the active roster.

To take Supernaw's spot of the practice squad, the Ravens signed tight end Emmanuel Ogbuehi. The Georgia State product went undrafted in 2013 and has spent time with the Redskins, Dolphins and Browns over the last two seasons. The Browns cut him from their practice squad earlier this month.
