The Baltimore Ravens still have no idea if star tight end Dennis Pitta will ever be able to play again.
Pitta suffered a fractured and dislocated hip against the Cleveland Browns in week three that kept him out for the rest of the season. This was the second time in two years that he had suffered the exact same injury.
Pitta's hip has now fully recovered from the effects of the injury in the sense that he is now leading a normal life and can walk without any aides, but any potential return to the football field is another thing entirely.
“His hip is fully recovered in the sense that the blood flow is there and there’s no lingering problem from either one of the injuries,” Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun.
“So, he’s in great position to live a great life, which is the main thing. Whether it goes to the next step and he wants or is able to play football, that will be up to them. I’m like you. I’m waiting to hear.”
