Dennis Pitta not activated by Ravens

Tight end Dennis Pitta was not activated by the Baltimore Ravens by the 4 p.m. Saturday deadline.

This means Pitta won't play Sunday against the New York Jets and remains on the injured reserve designated for return list. It would've been a surprise if Pitta played against the Jets.

The Ravens have two weeks to decide whether to activate Pitta to the 53-man roster or keep him on injured reserve, which would end his season. The Ravens' next game is Thanksgiving night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Pitta returned to practice this week for the first time since dislocating his hip on July 27.
