Description: According to espn.com, Ravens coach John Harbaugh is "pretty hopeful" tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) will be able to play Sunday against the Vikings.
Insight: "I think it\'s going to be a matter of how ready is he to play and how healthy he is to play," Harbaugh said. "Something like that, all of the doctors are going to be involved. The health of the player comes first. That\'s the No. 1 thing, his ability to withstand the rigors of a game. I think we\'re on track that way. We\'ll just have to see how it plays out." Given the lack of top option at the tight end position, Pitta could be a worthwhile stash for Weeks 15-16, but will likely be on a snap count if he plays Sunday.
