OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens can't afford to sulk over the loss of Dennis Pitta.
Baltimore has a Super Bowl championship to defend, and it's up to Ed Dickson and newcomer Visanthe Shiancoe to help the team move forward without its talented tight end.
Pitta fractured and dislocated his hip during practice Saturday and is lost for the season. That's a significant blow, because he was a key contributor to Baltimore's run to a second NFL championship.
Wide receiver Torrey Smith says while Pitta is a tough loss, ``someone is going to have to step it up.''
