Dennis Pitta is officially back on the Ravens' 53-man roster.
After numerous reports flooded Twitter, the Ravens made the move official by announcing it on their personal account.

It was expected that Pitta, who was on the injured reserve-designated to return list, would be back on the roster before Sunday's game against the Vikings. Now comes the waiting game part two, which is whether Pitta will be among the 46 players available for the game.
To make room for Pitta, who dislocated and fractured his hip this preseason, on the roster, the Ravens released running back Bernard Scott.

If Pitta is available to play, he'll likely see a limited workload. One sign indicating that he's good to go comes from the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.
