Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta fractured and dislocated his right hip on the third day of training camp. About four and a half months and one surgery later, he is finally ready to play. Pitta, who has been practicing for the past three weeks, was officially added to the Ravens' active roster Saturday.
There was a pretty remarkable sight on the Steelers' practice field Wednesday: Running back Le'Veon Bell going through full practice six days after taking a hit against the Ravens that left him unconscious and with a concussion and some memory loss.
Redskins tight end Jordan Reed showed us last week why you should never feel fully comfortable starting players coming back from a concussion until the ball is kicked off and he is on the field. Right now, fantasy owners of Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell should exercise a similar level of caution. Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Bell still has some tests to pass following his Week 13 concussion, but he added that Bell "looks good."
The Cleveland Browns will need quarterback Brandon Weeden to start in Week 13 with Jason Campbell out for at least one game due to a concussion. Weeden is 0-4 as a starter in 2013. The 30-year-old completed just 13-of-30 last week (43.3-percent) in what turned into a loss against the Steelers. The Browns host Jacksonville in what should be a beneficial matchup for Weeden.
