Will Dennis Pitta defy doctor's orders?

Dennis Pitta has to choose if he will continue to play the game he loves. His doctors aren't exactly in favor of such a thing.

Dennis Pitta has an ultimatum. By 4 p.m. today. he has to make the toughest decision of his life. Will he ever play a snap again?

After two hip dislocations in consecutive years, it may not be safe for Pitta to step back on the field, or so says Pitta's doctors.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley and league insider Ian Rapoport are both reporting that Pitta's doctors are against his return to the field. However, many are thinking that Pitta could override these orders and the wishes of both the team and his doctors.

Whatever Pitta decides, he'll let the world know at 4 p.m., when the Ravens have to make the decision to activate him off the PUP list.
