Ravens TE Dennis Pitta missed practice because of a 'little tweak'

The Baltimore Sun

Ravens starting tight end Dennis Pitta didn't practice Sunday because of a minor injury, according to coach John Harbaugh.

Pitta was on the practice field and didn't appear to have anything seriously wrong with him.

"He had a little tweak," Harbaugh said, "and I decided to hold him back and get with a trainer."

When a young fan asked Pitta during practice if he was hurt, Pitta gave a thumb's up.

Pitta fractured and dislocated his right hip last year before returning for the final four games of the regular season. He has made a complete recovery from the hip injury and is set for a major role in new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense.

Pitta caught a 14-yard pass on a tight end screen Thursday night during a 23-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Ravens signed Pitta to a five-year, $32 million contract in March that included $16 million in guaranteed money.
