John Harbaugh's wishes came to fruition.
Pitta dislocated his right hip back in late July and was in New York on Tuesday for an evaluation that appears to have gone well. At the time of the injury, the Ravens were expecting Pitta to miss the entire season.
Pitta reportedly looked good in practice this week. He even made a diving catch, landed on his surgically-repaired hip and bounced back up, according to the Baltimore Sun.
We don't expect the Ravens to lean heavily on Pitta early in his return, but the team is in prime position to make a playoff run. Pitta's presence gives quarterback Joe Flacco a reliable target over the middle -- especially on third downs -- which is something they have lacked this season.
