Ravens activate TE Pitta

The Sports NetworkDecember 7, 2013 

Owings Mills, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - The Baltimore Ravens activated tight end Dennis Pitta from the injured reserve-designated to return list on Saturday.

Pitta will be eligible to play his first game of the season against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The four-year veteran suffered a fractured and dislocated hip in training camp on July 27.

"You always want to see how you're going to respond after getting hit like that," Pitta said. "It's not something you can simulate in rehab or even in practice. It will be nice to take that first hit and just see how it feels."

The Brigham Young product caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

Baltimore has used tight ends Dallas Clark and Ed Dickson in his place. They have combined for 47 receptions and 554 receiving yards with three touchdowns.

Pitta has caught 102 passes for 1,075 yards and 10 touchdowns in 43 games with the Ravens.

Baltimore released running back Bernard Scott to make room for Pitta on the roster.
