John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens coach, left open the possibility of Dennis Pitta playing for the weeks leading up to the last two games. However, price per head sportsbooks found out that on Wednesday, Harbaugh was more optimistic about Pitta playing than at any other moment since the tight end started to practice again.
“I’m pretty hopeful that he can play on Sunday,” Harbaugh said.
As Jacoby Jones is becoming more involved, the Ravens are starting to find rhythm in the passing game. Price per head sportsbooks believe that if Baltimore can add Pitta, the team will have an intermediate threat to complement receivers Jones and Torrey Smith.
Pay per head services know that Pitta – who on July 27 dislocated his hip – is still on the list injured reserves who are designated for return. On Tuesday, the player was in New York for his hip to be evaluated and on Wednesday he returned to the practice field.
“I think it’s going to be a matter of how ready is he to play and how healthy he is to play,” Harbaugh said. “Something like that, all of the doctors are going to be involved. The health of the player comes first. That’s the No. 1 thing — his ability to withstand the rigors of a game. I think we’re on track that way. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.”
Last month, the player returned to practice, and the team have until December 11 to decide whether to end his season or activate him. It seems like it will only be a matter of time until the player is put on the 53-man roster.
Price per head sportsbooks found out that in practices leading up to the game with the New York Jets, the player ran individual routes , but last week he didn’t do too much because the Ravens were making walkthroughs as they got ready for a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Pitta is set to increase his work in practice this week, and many fans are very hopeful.
“I’m sure he probably still feels a little weak, and there are probably some things he’s going to feel himself through,” quarterback Joe Flacco said. “He hasn’t ran a full-speed route against defenders in a long time. You have to allow some adjustment time for that.”
