The Ravens placed wide receiver Jacoby Jones on the active / non-football injury list on Monday, according to the NFL’s transaction log.

Jones, 29, comes off a postseason to remember. In the Ravens’ win vs. the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, he returned a kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown and hauled a 56-yard score, too. He also caught the game-tying TD in the Ravens’ double-overtime victory at Denver in the divisional round. With Anquan Boldin now with San Francisco, Jones has a chance to earn a starting role on offense in 2013.

Earlier Monday, the Ravens disclosed that rookie defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore had been placed on active-NFI, with veteran right guard Marshal Yanda and inside linebacker Jameel McClain placed on the active / physically unable to perform list.

UPDATE 6:41 p.m. ET: According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, Jones did not pass his conditioning test.

  1. Shocking that he would fail a conditioning test with all that Dancing With the Stars cardio he had this offseason.

  2. Ravens were going to have a Herculean task of going .500 or better this year anyhow. This won’t make it any easier.

  3. Word is Flacco remarked hearing the news, “so what? Jacoby’s mission was to carry me to my big fat contract LAST year, and he did that, mission accomplished. So now that I’ve become the most overpaid player in NFL history, he can go to Cleveland for all I care! ”

    He then added, “besides I’ve still got Ray Rice to turn my one-yard dumpoffs into 29-yard first downs. Now I just need someone to go up and haul in my jump balls like Anquan used to do…”

    Really, though, good to see the Ravens decline begin…

  4. This is just coach showing who is boss. Easily 11-5 this year. Out side of cincy, the division is horrible, Pitt & Cleve r terrible.

  5. This has Harbaugh written all over it. He has no tolerance for reporting out of shape or lack of commitment. Just ask McKinnie, Upshaw, Ellerbe, Gaither, etc.

    Yep. Harbs doesn’t fool around when it’s time to go to work. He doesn’t care who you are, if you don’t fall in line you get put on ice.

  6. Reminds me of the classic post-SB commercial:
    “Hey Ravens, what are you going to do now that you won the SB?”

    “I’m going to the McDonalds in Disneyland!”

  7. How does a WR/KR show up for camp too fat/slow for work? It’s not like they have “you must stay under 400lbs” clauses written in their contracts, and it’s not like he’s not done rehabbing and injury that keeps him from doing position drills.

  8. John Harbaugh conditioning test…scale the Berlin Wall, run the Great Wall of China, then parasail to Mt. Rushmore and touch Washington’s nose.

    Go Ravens!

  9. Hate to say it, but his deep ball score in the Super Bowl was nothing short of epic…and that’s not even including the TD in Denver. I guess Eyebrows Flacco had something to do with it to, but salute either way.

  10. Do the Ravens win the SB without the guys that bear hugged all the tacklers for Jacoby Jones?

  11. As it should be! JJ, you show up for work ready for work or go to the dog house. Last season is over thus end of discussion! Let’s focus on who is ready to work for this season. GO Ravens!

  12. And it begins… I told you months ago that Ozzie Newsome wont stand pat with the WR’s on that roster. He never met a FA he didn’t like.

    I promise you before the second preseason game he’ll go get another WR. The Flacco jumpball/bailout crew isn’t as good this season.

  13. crown…that was funny. jb i am still confused as to why you knock a gm for trying to improve his team. i guess with the signings of spaeth plax and cotchery you wouldnt know what its like. but try a different approach my man. if colbert could do his job as well as ozzie then maybe the steelers wouldnt be in decline

  14. “I promise you before the second preseason game he’ll go get another WR.”

    Please Ozzie, sign a FA WR so we don’t have to listen to JTBSteeler make the same prediction ten weeks in a row.

  15. Hey scoobies, don’t get me wrong I have nothing against Jones. In fact he’s the real Ravens MVP, if not for him the Ravens lose when Flacco disappears the second half of the Super Bowl. He also saved Jump Ball’s bacon against Dallas, and also when Flacco got outplayed by a crippled Leftwich that Sunday night in Pittsburgh. If not for Jones the Ravens might not even have made the playoffs, let alone won the Bowl. (That’s what makes Flacco’s big contract such a joke.)

    “Joemontanaflaccid”: great name, dude!
