OWINGS MILLS – Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta did not announce his retirement Wednesday, but begrudgingly accepted that it was unsafe for him to return to the NFL this season.
With Kory Lichtensteiger on injured reserve with a designation to be able to return, Josh LeRibeus will continue to start at center for the Redskins—at least for the short term.
Dennis Pitta is not expected to play this season after being advised not to return by doctors, according to multiple reports and confirmed by CSNmidatlantic.com.
Justin Forsett got some rest during the bye, and that’s a good thing.
The Redskins are having trouble putting points on the board. After scoring just 10 against the Patriots last Sunday, they have 158 on the season, 19.8 per game. That ranks 28th in the NFL.
