On Thursday, July 20, rookie offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor was placed on the Ravens’ non-football injury list as a result of failing the team’s conditioning test. This means that when the other rookies began training camp after passing the test, Eluemunor was held back. However, Eluemunor is set to come off of the non-football injury list later today, July 21, when the team’s transactions are released as, per Jeff Zriebiec, the Texas A&M product passed his test.

Eluemunor confirmed the report himself, tweeting:

Failing the conditioning test is not something to get overly worried about. Mike Wallace failed his conditioning test on the first attempt last year, but he came back, passed it, and went on to have a 1,000 yard season. Other players that have failed on the first attempt in the past are Lardarius Webb, Haloti Ngata and Jacoby Jones. What matters is that a player doesn’t miss extended practice time for continually failing the test, which Eluemunor did not do.

Eluemunor has been regarded as a prospect with a lot of potential, but needs time to develop. However, now that he will hit the practice field, Eluemunor will get a chance to prove the superlatives false, and fight for the starting right tackle job.
