Ravens fear that Dennis Pitta may have broken hand
Tight end left Monday's practice early, will undergo MRI Tuesday

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta could miss the rest of training camp and is now a question mark for the Sept. 10 season opener after he suffered what appears to be a broken hand in Monday's practice.

Pitta walked off the field with a trainer less than an hour into Monday's session, the latest -- and easily the most significant -- injury that has marred the first four days of training camp.

The 27-year-old tight end, who became one of quarterback Joe Flacco's favorite targets in his second season, is scheduled to undergo a magnetic resonance imaging test Tuesday, but it's believed that he'll soon undergo surgery to repair the damage.

"It looks like he broke his hand [and] he'll have to get it repaired in some form or fashion," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after practice. "[He] should be back for the first regular-season game, but that's very tentative, and I'm a little ahead of myself there."

The Ravens' season opener, a Monday night home game against the Cincinnati Bengals, is six weeks away.

"I shouldn't really say because I really don't know, but it's not going to be that long," said Harbaugh when asked to clarify how long Pitta could be sidelined. "[Tuesday], we could find out it's different because of the MRI so I probably shouldn't have said anything."
