Default Re: Ravens' Pitta dislocates hip

In summary, this is a very unfortunate injury for this young man........one that is very likely career-ending.........and very likely to ultimately lead to the need for hip joint replacement
Is this pretty much the same injury that ended Bo Jackson's football career?
