Jacoby Jones passes conditioning test

After spending part of his offseason working on his dance moves, Jacoby Jones now has his football legs back.

The Ravens wide receiver passed his conditioning test on his second try, and will be activated from the non-football injury list, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

Players have to complete a series of sprints in a prescribed time, and Jones wasn’t able to do that upon reporting to camp. Coach John Harbaugh said he expected Jones to pass it quickly.

“I would never make any excuses for him,” Harbaugh said. “He should pass it, but he’s battling. We’ll see, it’s up to him. It’s his job to do. That’s the facts. Facts are stubborn things.”

Jones made a number of big plays for the Ravens during the Super Bowl run, but has a chance to make more, with the door open for him to win the No. 2 receiver job. Now that he’s in shape to qualify for practice, those chances improved.

    As soon as he’s expected to do it……..sorry Ravens fans.

    For all the talk about how improved this team is from last year, rolling out on game day with Smith and Jones as the #1 & #2 will be the death of this team. Rice can only catch so many check-downs, and the TE’s are stone-hands.

    If he can overcome that obstacle in just a few days, leaping over the Steelers’ prostrate secondary will be a breeze.

    Dennis Pitta has some of the best hands on the team. Not to mention our most clutch 3rd down player. Do your research or continue making uneducated comments. It’s up to you….

    and yet smith jones pitta dickson and rice will be far better than anything the steelers will throw out.

    TE’s are stone hands?? Dennis Pitta???? You really crapped out at the end of your point didn’t you…

    Crownofthehelmet-It’s so obvious you’re a typical Steeler fan hating on the Ravens…You don’t see any of us spending our days talking smack about the Steelers. Why, because we have lives and could care less about the Steelers who may end up being the 3rd or 4th place in the division again this year.

    You’re team is old and rebuilding. Coach Tomlin was given a Super Bowl contending squad and now that’s catching up to him now that the players are getting old. As for your comments regarding our WR’s, yes losing Boldin hurts just like loosing Wallace. But to say our “TE’s are stone hands”??? I believe Pitta caught plenty of balls and had many TD’s last season. He’s arguebaly one of the best scoring TE’s in the league and the stats can back that statement up.

    Get your facts straight before you constantly hate on your rivals.

    If you were trying to make a valid point you should have mentioned the loss of Boldin which is the hardest lost on this squad. Dennis Pitta has the makings of a top 5 TE in this league, the guy catches nearly everything and reminds me of Heap, far from “stone hands”.

    Crown of the helmet…

    What are you talking about? Were you mistaking the ravens for your own team? Nothing is going to change with Torrey smith. He’s going to continue to do what he’s been doing, and maybe now he’ll get even more targets.

    The tight ends are a strength, and pitta has pretty much caught everything within reach. Dickson has some drops that people remember, but he’s also made some game breaking plays. A lot of his drops were bad throws FYI.

    The only real question for the ravens is if flacco continues his consistent playoff play… Or he reverts back to average joe that he was for the first 5 years of his career before last years playoffs started.

    And THAT will depend a lot on how the offensive line works out without having center Matt Birk there calling out the protections.

  10. moagecu says: Jul 25, 2013 1:27 PM

    crown… clearly haven’t watched any ravens games if you think the TEs have stone hands. Pitta has some of the best hands in the NFL.

  11. scoobies05 says: Jul 25, 2013 1:36 PM

    wow crown. getting called out big time. nothing like a fact based arguement to put you in your place

    Have you really never read the comments before? Your fans even talk smack about the steelers on ravens articles that have nothing to do with the steelers. You officially made the dumbest comment of the day.

  13. jtbsteeler says: Jul 25, 2013 1:38 PM

    Fifteen days until Ozzie signs or trades for a WR.

    Can’t wait to burn the bums in that secondary. It was terrible last season and its worse on paper now. Ledarius “two popped ACL’s” Webb.

  14. greglloydrules says: Jul 25, 2013 1:43 PM

    Jacoby Jones? Is that all the Ravens are putting out there at #2? Pathetic

  15. rajbais says: Jul 25, 2013 2:00 PM

    That’s why active NFL players shouldn’t do DWTS.

    All of the dances and dance practices reshape your physique to where you’re not in football shape.

    That’s why Jason Taylor, Hines ward, Donald driver, and Chad Johnson all underperformed the NFL seasons after they got DWTS done.

    DWTS is not a curse. It does affect you literally.

    It might be the second dumbest comment of the day. Your uninformed nonsense about Pitta is clearly #1.

  17. crownofthehelmet says: Jul 25, 2013 2:16 PM

    Maybe I reached a little on the stone-hands shot, but the rest is spot on. You’re asking a lot of a newbie and a one-trick pony to be your go-to’s. Rice is getting old fast, and Slownard Pierce ain’t gonna get it done.

    And whoever said losing Boldin is comparable to us losing Wallace, surely you jest. Too many things wrong about that to cover.

  18. taosravenfan says: Jul 25, 2013 2:40 PM

    Crown – now you really show your ignorance. Eithe one of our running backs would start on your team. On what do you base the assertion that rice is getting old fast. He was a backup in his first year to Willis. Split time and eventually took over in his second year and has a coach that makes sure he doesn’t get multiple seasons with 300+ carries.

    The one comment you make that has merit is regarding our WR’s.. Is Torrey ready to be a real number 1? Can J. jones be a number 2 here when he could not in Houston? Who will take over as slot guy, Doss, Reed, or someone else. The bottom line is that every team has ?’s going into the season. If that is the real limits of our ?’s then we will be ok. But I can guarantee you this. If Ozzie thinks that there is someone out there who can help our team and solidifies a weakness, he is one of the best in the league at doing it.

    For goodness sakes crown make sure your brain is in gear before putting your mouth in motion.

    2012 Yards per carry

    Bernard Pierce: 4.9
    Ray Rice: 4.5

    Jonathan Dwyer: 4.0
    Isaac Redman: 3.7
    Rashard Mendenhall: 3.6

    Seriously, crown, you definitely comment much more on Ravens stories than on Steelers stories.
    But I guess if my team were .500 rather than Superbowl Champions I might let bitterness cloud my statements too.

    Steelers fans have always had a hard time with the concept of That Was Then, This is NOW.

    Why are Ravens fans commenting on how good the ravens are on this article?! Your #2 WR failed his conditioning test, in the NFL that is unthought of because of how athletic players are. And this guy is a freakin returner (a good one) and he failed his conditioning test.

    Now in today’s news, one of your STARTING offensive lineman showed up to practice overweight and he was told to leave and not to come back until he is in-shape.

    The Ravens play against the Broncos at Mile High Stadium, where it is really hard to breathe even if your players are in shape, imagine how they are going to breathe if they’re not in-shape.

    Whatever I’m glad you guys aren’t worried about your team because
    when you see your team play on the field, it’s going to hit you like a truck.

  21. tjrogers09 says: Jul 25, 2013 6:01 PM

    Crown-You have dug yourself into a massive hole today.. You should sit the next few out and go hang with Localvoice.. You two are complete idiots and belong in the same room together.

    My assumption is he will go home and sit in his basement tonight researching stats on the Ravens & Steelers.

    I forget, didn’t batch game more yards in 1 game then Flacco did in 2 against the steelers? Next year the north starts on equal ground. Steelers will be better then people think. The loss of Wallace won’t be felt as much as the loss of Boldin.

  23. ampatsisahypocrite says: Jul 26, 2013 12:39 AM

    Said Joe Flacco, “that’s nice he got better, but really all that matters is that he stayed healthy last year so he could earn that big contract for me.”

  24. Joemontanaflacco says: Jul 26, 2013 8:16 AM

    “The loss of Wallace won’t be felt as much as the loss of Boldin.”

    You’ll feel it when your decrepit secondary gets smoked by Miami this year! And it ain’t gonna tickle.
    Miami 42
    Steelers 3

  25. ampatsisahypocrite says: Jul 26, 2013 9:14 PM

    OK, serious question: how much do you think Flacco’s contract is worth if Jones doesn’t run back that kick in the Super Bowl?

  26. scoobies05 says: Jul 27, 2013 11:53 AM

    serious answer….probably the same because as you know, 11tds 0 ints and a superbowl mvp

  27. scoobies05 says: Jul 27, 2013 12:50 PM

    hey jb…lets talk dbs…when was the last time troy played a whole season. and please answer the question…why is it wrong for a gm to improve his team. i am sure you must be frustrated with plax, cotchery, and spaeth. i would be too

  28. ampatsisahypocrite says: Jul 27, 2013 2:19 PM

    Well, Scoobie, I hate to tell ya, but if Jones doesn’t return that kick, there’s no Bowl win, and last I looked, they don’t give MVPs out to players from the losing side. Now, if Flacco (who did nothing the second half) becomes the greatest choking QB in Bowl history, blowing the biggest lead ever, instead of MVP… again, how much do you think his new contract’s worth?
