Ed Dickson missed practice Wednesday for the Baltimore Ravens due to a knee injury, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. Dickson missed last week's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers after sustaining the injury in Week 12 against the San Diego Chargers.
There is no word yet on the tight end's status for Week 14 against the Washington Redskins. Dickson has had a disappointing 2012 season, with just 14 receptions for 152 yards and no touchdowns.
Fantasy Impact: Dennis Pitta has been the Ravens' go-to tight end for the most part, with 45 receptions for 442 yards and four touchdown on the season. Even he has been quiet lately, however. Pitta has been held to two receptions or less in three out of his last five games.
As long as the Ravens' offense continues to struggle, neither Pitta nor Dickson (if healthy) can be recommended as safe starting fantasy options. There should be plenty of better tight ends available in your fantasy league.
