Pitta suffers hand injury

The Ravens offense suffered a blow Monday when third-year tight end Dennis Pitta left the practice field with what looks like a broken hand, according to coach John Harbaugh.

It looks like hell have to get it repaired in some form or fashion, Harbaugh said, and hell be back for the first regular season game.

Harbaugh quickly added that he probably shouldnt have said anything because the prognosis could change when Pitta undergoes an MRI Tuesday.

Tomorrow we could find out that its different, Harbaugh said.

But unless theres a dramatic change, it appears the Ravens could be without one of quarterback Joe Flaccos favorite targets for the rest of training camp and all of the preseason.

Pitta, drafted by the Ravens in the fourth round in 2010, emerged as a major contributor in 2011, catching 40 passes for 406 yards and three touchdowns. The Ravens gambled that he and fellow second-year tight end Ed Dickson could replace Todd Heap, the popular veteran tight end, who was cut before the season, and the gamble worked, as Pitta and Dickson combined for 94 catches.

Pitta also is one of Flaccos best friends on the team, and their connection translated onto the field as Flacco often looked to Pitta in key situations, especially down the stretch of the season.

Dennis is a good guy who can play inside or line up outside, receiver Anquan Boldin said. Hes a nightmare for defenses across the broad and its definitely a good thing when hes on the field.

But now that might not happen for awhile.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: The return of Pernell McPhee

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including the return of Pernell McPhee.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Pernell McPhee is a Baltimore Raven again! The Ravens signed McPhee to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McPhee was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 during the fifth round and spent four seasons with the team before landing in Chicago and then last season in Washington. The Ravens hope to capitalize on McPhee's 31 career sacks as they hone-in on producing a "diversified pass rush."

2. The Ravens have also signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was last with Pittsburgh. Prince was waived by the Steelers after not seeing a down during the 2018 season. The Steelers picked up Prince as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina.

3. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 regular season. Peterson reportedly violated the NFL's performance-enhancement drug policy. The Ravens face the Cardinals during Week 2, so this is good news for the guys in purple.

4. The Ravens have reportedly signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ray had an unproductive season with the Broncos last year with one sack and one forced fumble in 11 games played.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
