As expected, the Ravens announced Wednesday that have placed tight end Dennis Pitta on the injured-reserve, designated to return list. Pitta has been replaced on the 53-man roster by tight end Billy Bajema.

The Ravens are holding out hope that Pitta can return later this season from his fractured hip injury suffered early in training camp. Pitta is eligible to return to the roster after Week 6, but if he does return, it will be later in the season. Pitta suffered a fractured and dislocated hip, but did not suffer structural damage.

Bajema will be the third tight end on the roster behind Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark.
