Ravens sign Supernaw, put Pitta on IR

The Baltimore Ravens signed tight end Phillip Supernaw from the practice squad after placing Dennis Pitta (hip) on injured reserve.

Supernaw, 24, spent parts of the past two years on the Houston Texans' practice squad, so he is familiar with Gary Kubiak's offense. He did appear in one game in 2013 but didn't record a catch.

Undrafted out of Ouachita Baptist, Supernaw is 6-foot-5, 248 pounds. He didn't have a catch for the Ravens in the preseason.

To take Supernaw's place on the practice squad, the Ravens added tight end Emmanuel Ogbuehi. The Browns had cut him from their practice squad earlier this month.

Here's the current practice squad:

  • LB Josh Bynes

  • TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi

  • CB Tramain Jacobs

  • G Ryan Jensen

  • OT Marcel Jones

  • DT Jamie Meder

  • DT A.J. Pataiali'i

  • LB John Simon

  • QB Keith Wenning

  • CB Lou Young

Notes: The Detroit Lions are expected to sign Bynes off the practice squad, according to media reports. RB Fitzgerald Toussaint will likely be added back to practice squad once he clears waivers.
