Ravens place Dennis Pitta, Terrence Brooks on PUP List
Earlier this week, there was a report that Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was expected to start training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
That report was proven correct on Friday when the NFL’s daily transactions report brought word that the Ravens have placed Pitta on the PUP list. He’ll have company there. Safety Terrence Brooks has also been placed on the list, which bars players from practicing and can extend into the regular season. If it does, both players will be ineligible to play for six weeks.
Brooks tore ligaments in his knee last December against the Jaguars, so it’s not surprising that he’s not ready to go just yet. The 2014 third-round pick had 19 tackles in 11 games during his rookie season.
Pitta has played just seven games over the last two seasons after dislocating his hip twice and did some individual work this offseason. He’s guaranteed $4 million this season, so the Ravens have plenty of reasons to give him time to get healthy and see if he can return to a role in the offense.
