On Monday, coach John Harbaugh said that the Ravens are expecting TE Dennis Pitta to completely recover from the second surgery to the hip that he had, and feature once more for Baltimore in 2015, something that many fans and bookmaker software services believe would be great for the team.
For the second time, the player suffered a major injury on his hip in two years when he fell down without having been hit during a game against the Browns on the 21st of September, and he’s currently on their IR list.
There were many people – the coach included – who believed that Pitta’s return would be very difficult because he suffered another injury to the hip. However, the coach was informed that the player’s injury would not put his career to an end, and many fans were very optimistic when they learned about this.
“They say it has no bearing on the future. It heals 100 percent,” said coach Harbaugh. “Dennis can play again. Dennis has told me that he wants to play again. Of course if he wants to play, he’ll get every opportunity to play if the medical people clear him. And I’ve been told to this point that they see no reason why it wouldn’t be clear if everything goes according to plan.”
This comes as great news to both Pitta and Baltimore, who signed the TE to a $32 million, five-year contract before the season got underway, including a guaranteed $16 million.
Pitta, who is 29-years-old and very well known for his talents on the field, turned into one of the top targets of QB Joe Flacco. Many fans and bookmaker software services remember when in 2012, the player was able to make career-highs with 7 TD’s, 669 receiving yards, and 61 catches. That season, during Baltimore’s run for the Super Bowl, he had TD’s in three out of four of the team’s games in the playoffs.
In 2013, he only featured in four meetings after having dislocated his hip, and this season the player appeared in three matchups before he again injured his hip.
This season, Baltimore were able to better handle Pitta’s loss after they acquired the services of Owen Daniels – a player who on the team is ranked at second place, catching the ball 39 times for 385 yards and 3 TD’s.
The Ravens’ fans believe that Pitta should have no trouble returning to action next season, and anticipate a great comeback by the player.
