They're saying he will miss all of training camp and likely the season opener as well:

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta is carted off the field after collision

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was carted off the field by trainers today during the third full-team practice of training camp.

During the first fully-padded practice of camp, Pitta was in a collision with strong safety James Ihedigbo. It was during a pass pattern to the back of the end zone.

Although there was no immediate status update on the nature of Pitta's injury, it was serious enough that he had to be helped off the field. As he was carted off the field, Pitta had a towel draped over his face.
We will update when we have more information.

Another done for the season scenario (rumored to be very severe). Tough year for dynasty with all these injuries.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta dislocates and fractures hip, could be out for the season
Pitta had surgery Saturday evening, according to a source

What initially appeared to be an acrobatic catch in the back of the end zone Saturday became the Ravens' first significant injury of training camp, and a potential blow in their quest to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Tight end Dennis Pitta, one of Joe Flacco’s favorite targets, fractured and dislocated his hip according to sources. Team officials are prepared Pitta could be out the entire 2013-14 season.

Pitta, who was hurt while trying to catch a Flacco pass in the back of the end zone, was carted off the field with a towel draped over his head. He was later taken from the Under Armour Performance Center by an ambulance to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery, according to a source.

The Ravens haven’t officially declared him out for the season but they are aware that's the likely outcome.

“We’ll have to take a look and see exactly what it is,” said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh who did acknowledge that Pitta will miss the team’s Sept. 5 regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos. “It’s a serious injury. He is going to be out for a while. He will not be in the Denver game and we’ll just have to play it from there to see how long it goes.”

The Ravens regular-season opener is just under six weeks away. According to medical journals, hip dislocations carry a three-or-four-month recovery period depending on the type of dislocation. That Pitta had surgery is certainly an ominous sign.
