    Seriously, that was a great improvised play he was a part of for that early touchdown against Houston in the playoffs. Sure, he'd just be a camp body at this point but why not bring in one who's done something for this team instead of a washed up has-been.

    No way to know because a broken hand can mean anything. Until we get a more detailed report on the injury it's impossible to know how long he'll be out.

    He's having surgery this week to reset the bone properly. It really depends on which bone(s) and whether or not there was any soft tissue damage.

    If it's not a bad break the swelling and bruising should go away in a few weeks and the bone should be pretty healed by September, but the pain will probably still be there.

    well, theyre taking an mri to confirm that it is broke. I think we can conclude its not a severe fracture by that alone. certainly isnt a compound fracture, which would be a bigger issue. it should fall anywhere between 4-8 weeks.

    EDIT

    I didnt hear that they had to reset it or do surgery, do you have a link.

    if thats the case its certainly a bigger issue than i originally thought but seems about right with what youre saying.

    I swear I read it somewhere...

    This is on br.com:
    "It looks like he broke his hand,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "It looks like he’ll have to get it repaired in some form or fashion and he should be back for the first regular-season game. That’s very tentative, I’m very ahead of myself.”

    Pitta will have an MRI on Tuesday to further assess the damage, and the Ravens will be able to tell more accurately at that point how much time he will miss.
    I'll see if I can find where I read that.

    Found it:

    Aaron Wilson said that in the carroll county times. I misread though. I saw the MRI happening this week and then Aaron Wilson saying he might need surgery.

    Pitta broke his hand and may require surgery, according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.

    itll be interesting to see what comes of it, but to me if theyre doing an mri it just cant be that bad of a break. has to be a hairline that didnt show clearly on the xray.

    Drew has had a couple seasons of "shot"... I'm not holding my breath. Veteran cast offs will become available if needed.

    As for Dickson serving as depth for Pitta, he doesn't have nearly the groove w/ Joe that Pitta had by the end of last year. And so much for 2 TE sets. I agree a silver lining is the extra work Dickson will get w/ Joe this TC. Someone needs to step up as Mr. Security Blanket/Soft Hands. Maybe Doss can cross the middle? It was encouraging to see Ravens Insider report that Doss and Cary Williams nearly bumped titties on the sidelines. Tells me Cary is in fighting trim and hungry to keep his job, and that Doss may have a pulse after all.

    This sucks monkey testicles. Pitta was killing on third down and in the red zone down the stretch...SF, @Cincy and AFC Champ game come to mind.

    Can he give his other hand to Ed Dickson?
