The Baltimore Ravens officially did what had been reported for several days regarding injured tight end Dennis Pitta.

The Ravens placed Pitta on injured reserve with a recall designation as they hope he can return before the season is over from a hip injury suffered early in training camp.

To replace Pitta on the 53-man roster, the Ravens signed journeyman tight end Billy Bajema.
