It has been confirmed that Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta will start the season on the PUP list.

The 30-year-old will remain out of action until after the sixth game of the season at the very least, although it could be longer.

Pitta is still trying to make a comeback since he injured his hip and went down in a game against the Cleveland Browns last season in week three. This is his second hip injury in two years.

Questions have even been raised in the past over if the tight end will ever play in the NFL again. His injury history shows his proneness which will not be appealing to any team if the Ravens decide to cut him at any point in the future.

Nevertheless, Pitta will be receiving $4 million in guaranteed money this season. This is one of the only incentives the Ravens have to try and get the player back on the field by their week seven match up against the Arizona Cardinals.

According to the team’s website, Pitta participated in individual and position drills during the Ravens’ OTAs, but hasn’t participated in any contact drills or activities with the team since dislocating and fracturing his hip against the Browns.

The tight end has been making appearances at preseason games, but only to run routes on the field before each of them. From looking at this, he appears to have good mobility and explosion. Harbaugh said he gets the impression that Pitta wants to play but the organisation is still waiting for the doctors to give him clearance.

Until then, Pitta will have to watch from the sidelines.
