|Itís officially official. Itís time to give up on the hope that Daniels will regain the elite form that he displayed over the first half of the 2009 season before suffering a torn ACL. At this point, it is even hard to get excited that Daniels has the chance to earn plenty of targets with Kevin Walter in decline and a trio of unproven players behind him on the depth chart. He caught 54 passes for 677 yards and three touchdowns last season and it is unlikely that he will significantly improve on those numbers in 2012. Consider Daniels a mid to lower tier TE2.
| Forsett sits, Owen Daniels practices Wednesday -- Wed Oct 29 1:10 pm --|
Leg injury for Ravens' running back
|avens veterans Owen Daniels and Chris Canty returned to practice Wednesday..
The tight end Daniels missed Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.
Several players weren't practicing (including) running back Justin Forsett (leg), who was limping after the Bengals' game and downplayed the severity of his injury. (Baltimore Sun)|
FF Today's Take: The exact injury to Forsett isn't known but it's something for owners to keep an eye on. Lorenzo Taliaferro would see increased value this week if Forsett isn't able to go.
|TE Crockett Gillmore to start in place of Daniels -- Sat Oct 25 7:00 am --|
Owen Daniels has knee scoped
|The Ravens will be shorthanded at tight end for Sundayís game against the Cincinnati Bengals as veteran tight end Owen Daniels underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after his injury didnít improve this week.
Daniels was officially ruled out on the injury report.
Rookie tight end Crockett Gillmore will start in place of the two-time Pro Bowl selection. (Baltimore Sun)|
FF Today's Take: It's conceivable that Daniels could return in Week 9 but there's no guarantee. The Ravens have already lost Dennis Pitta at the position and will now call on their rookie to fill the void. Crockett will be a TE2 against the Bengals this week.
| Dennis Pitta suffers dislocated hip -- Mon Sep 22 4:00 pm --|
Likely out for season and could threaten career
|Ravens TE Dennis Pitta will undergo surgery to repair the damage to his dislocated right hip, which likely is also fractured, according to team sources.
Pitta dislocated his right hip for the second time in the past year, getting hurt without being touched during the second quarter of Sunday's 23-21 win over the Cleveland Browns.
This is a major setback for Pitta, one that probably ends his season and casts doubt on his career outlook. (Baltimore Sun)|
FF Today's Take: Pitta fractured and dislocated his hip during training camp last year and missed all but the final four games of the 2013 regular season. With Pitta sustaining this injury, the Ravens will turn toward TE Owen Daniels and rookie Crockett Gillmore. They could also utilize FB Kyle Juszczyk, who caught three passes for 54 yards and a touchdown against the Browns, in a tight end role.
