Hours after it was learned Jacoby Jones had failed his conditioning test, it was learned that teammate Haloti Ngata passed his with flying colors.
In a Q&A with the Baltimore Sun, coach John Harbaugh was asked about his star defensive tackle's health at this time of the year. Ngata sprained his MCL in the Super Bowl against San Francisco, which raised doubts as to whether he'd be ready for the start of training camp.
"Yeah, Haloti came in in great shape," Harbaugh told The Sun. "He's looking great. He blew away the conditioning test. He's ready to go."
That could indicate that Ngata won't be placed on the physically unable to perform list. On Monday, the Ravens announced that Jameel McClain (spinal cord contusion) and Marshal Yanda (rotator cuff surgery) were placed on the PUP list. Ngata, Terrence Cody (hip) and Lardarius Webb were noticeably absent from the designation.
It's still possible that Ngata, or Cody and Webb for that matter, wind up with a PUP designation. The Ravens have until Thursday at 2:30 (their first scheduled full training camp practice) to make a decision.
