TE Dennis Pitta has a dislocated hip. Will miss at least the Denver game.
The Ravens were already short on pass-catchers and this certainly doesn't help. Hopefully for everyone involved, Pitta can return for Week 2 (Cleveland), but that remains to be seen and sounds like a best-case scenario. Pitta's draft stock may tumble, but presuming he's back somewhere around Week 2 or Week 3, he should still hold mid-round (10th/11th) value on draft day. Until there is more clarity about his recovery, it is probably a situation best avoided given some of the other options at tight end. Ed Dickson should see more looks with Pitta sidelined.
