"He's definitely an important part of our offense," said veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin after he was informed of Pitta's injury. "I think you saw him last year play a big role, especially when it came down the stretch. Dennis is a guy [who] can play inside, a guy [who] we can line up outside, get different mismatches. So, he's a nightmare for defenses across the board. It's a good thing when he's on the field."
