Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta suffered a hip injury during organized team activities on Friday. The injury continues the Ravens unfortunate string of injuries.

This is not Pitta’s first run in with hip injuries. Pitta originally fractured the hip in 2013 after a collision during practice.

Pitta only played seven games between 2013 to 2015 due to nagging hip problems. After only playing three games in 2014, Pitta dislocated the same hip and was shut down the rest of the season.

2016 was a big year for Pitta however, as he appeared in all 16 games and set career highs with 86 receptions and 729 receiving yards.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome released the news in a statement today.

Unfortunately for the 31 year old Dennis Pitta, depending on the severity of the injury, he may have seen the end of his time in the NFL.

Somewhat luckily, the Ravens have considerable depth at the tight end position. Even without Dennis Pitta the Ravens still have Benjamin Watson, Crockett Gilmore, Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle to fill the vacancy.
