Dennis Pitta could return this season

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta hasn't been ruled out for the season after undergoing surgery to repair his dislocated, fractured right hip with the Ravens leaning toward placing him on injured reserve-designated to return next week.

Pitta had a bone fragment removed from his hip, but didn't sustain any ligament or cartilage damage, which is why the Ravens are holding out some hope of him potentially making a late-season return.

"He's working really hard," HC John Harbaugh said. "He's had no setbacks, and there's optimism."

Fantasy Impact: 

Pitta is a player to monitor as the first half of the season wears on, but there's no reason to draft/add Pitta given all the capable options currently available late in drafts or on the waiver wire.
