Tough break for pitta, had a good season last year

Does this mean ziggy is the only byu player to graduate the last 10 years who will actually play in the nfl this year?

Kaysville, UT

there are plenty of BYU grads who still play, just not the big play makers that Pitta was. Collie will be on a team this year, no doubt. hopefully he will stay injury free this year. Wish you a speedy recovery Pitta! Go Cougs!

Very disappointing news indeed! Just when things are beginning to click in his career something horrible happened. So sad! Hope he has a speedy recovery. This sounds eerily similar to Collie's situation. Unfortunate bad breaks for both of them. Hope we haven't heard the last of either of them.

That's the Pitt's!!!
A walk on that made it to the big time because he walked the walk and talked the talk of Bronco's Sunday School Boy's focus. (And no the NFL is not the Big time).
Pitta will be fine because making it in the NFL is just another step in his progression and not the end as some would believe.
Best of Lord's blessings be with you Dennis.
Get better soon and I look forward to more success in your life.


I'm sorry to hear this news. Hopefully he'll recover fully from this strange injury.


Poor guy, he will probably need hip replacement surgery when he is in his 50's. It is a pretty high price to be an NFL player.

Dennis Pitta is the epitome of everything that could be right with the NFL. He is a great example of going from a walk-on, at BYU, all the way to becoming a starter in the NFL. I hope he has a complete recovery.

I am reminded of Bo Jackson's hip injury (dislocation) that destroyed his NFL career and severely limited his MLB career.

But a fractured hip! A comeback from that is very unlikely. Say goodbye to Pitta...

As a Dolphins & Utes fan, I hope Dennis recovers quickly. If Adrian Peterson & Drew Brees can return anything is possible.

I root for the Ravens because the rest of that division is evil or plays their home games in Ohio.

Tough break. No doubt he'll hang in there and come back as strong as ever next year.

That injury sounds particularly painful though -- and probably will be for quite a while as it heals.

Murray, UT

This is terrible news about Pitta, I hope he recovers quickly and is able to resume his playing career next season.

Bountiful, UT

wow...what a bummer. He was set to have a breakout season too. Heal quickly Dennis!

@Chris B

Not cool, Chrissy. There's a time and place for smack, and a time to lay low. The event of a severe player injury falls into the latter category, hon. For every article where smack doesn't fly real well, there's another 99 where it's fine. This would have been a judicious time to let the smack ride, and thus avoid entering a conversation rear-end first. Your choice, of course, but perhaps worth your consideration -- this ain't your finest moment.

Tough break for Pitta. He is a great tight end and I admire his talent. The Ravens had magic last year and struck gold. Looks like they are falling back to earth this year, unfortunately.

Here's to a speedy and complete recovery!

Please, people, ignore Chris B!
