Ravens put Terrence Cody on PUP list

Defensive tackle Terrence Cody re-signed with the Ravens in April and then spent the rest of the offseason recovering from hip surgery.

His recovery has not progressed quickly enough for the team to be sure that he’ll be ready to go on the first day of training camp, so they announced on Friday that Cody has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Cody can be activated at any point during camp, but can’t practice with the team until they formally make that move.

Cody started 14 games during the 2011 season, but has seen his playing time dip over the last two seasons as the Ravens have looked elsewhere for help stuffing the run. Cody said this spring that he wants to show he can be more than just a run stopper this season.

“With the hip injury, I haven’t been able to grow as much lately,” Cody said, via the team’s website. “Now that I’m about to be healthy, I can be able to do things more on the field, instead of just being there as a first- and second-down guy.”

Given the health concerns, he’s probably not guaranteed anything but a chance to vie for a roster spot this summer on a defensive line that added two new members in this year’s draft.

  1. Hmmm….and I was just reading about how healthy he was heading into camp…I guess they are just trying to delay the process of cutting him. With all the depth on the d-line, plus his past poor performances, and now his health being an issue, he is as good as gone.

  2. In Cody’s case, PUP stands for Piling Up Pounds. The don’t call him Mount Cody for nothing.

  3. Mt Cody never really managed to live up to the flashes of ptoential he showed early. And it is never easy for a guy that size to recover from hip surgery.

  4. Based on last year’s performance, half the team belongs on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

  5. I assume he had a torn labrum in his hip socket. I’ve torn both of mine. It feels like 100 needles being jammed directly into your hip….not fun.

    Surgery is maybe 50/50 successful, they haven’t perfected it quite yet. IIRC, ARod had several procedures to get it right, and Percy Harvin and Brandon Marshall have both had successful procedures – we’ll see how they hold up.

    I’ve opted for PT and limiting running on hard surfaces and other high-impact activities versus surgery since its not a guarantee of any benefit.

    I wish him good health, that injury sucks.

  6. I’ll blindly agree with the ravens on most things just like any fan will for their favorite sports team however keeping this guy is one of the few that I must question

  7. Just lost his spot. Williams will excel this year, Cody never could get with the program.

  8. So in this case, physically unable to perform basically means he’s too damn fat to get out of bed.

    Pretty much sums up the mouth breathing, sheep-like character of baltimore ravens fans.

  10. All signs point to Cody never working a day in his life.

    If he spent 2 hours a week lifting weights we would be talking about the next Vince Wilfork but i’m not sure he has lifted a weight in his life.

    The Hip has been a nice reason for his failure of late, but if not for the hip he’d still be in lousy shape and not producing a damn thing on the field.

    Watching the lottery ticket waste away. Find your Bong and your video game Cody.

    Coming from someone who believes Andy Dalton can win a Super Bowl, that’s rich.

  12. No, no, no pftis. Dalton won’t win a Superbowl until he gets a true #2 receiver. But once he does, he’ll win every superbowl ever played thereafter.

    You forgot Tight End. Apparently he doesn’t have one of those either. And apparently Guard and Center are liabilities now. Come to think of it A.J. Green struggled against Ike Taylor, so he’s not a true #1 now. I guess the Bengals need an entire new offensive corps to build around Dalton.

    Wow dr crust belt you are becoming my fav bungle fan. Let’s sum things up for you, you are a fan (which is short for fanatic) of the bungles and you blindly follow and agree with the choices that they make like support the ginger stepchild who can’t get it together in the playoffs while having a top 5 WR, a top 5 defense, a very talented young RB, and a couple of darn good TE’s… yea I think you are the mouth breathing sheep guy

    I applaud you sir. Very well played

  17. point 1. Steelers and Ravens had the same record last year. so half the Steelers should also be on the pup list
    point 2. Dr rust belt…seriously…please wait for the Bengals to actually win something
    point 3. Cody belongs on the C U T list

  18. pft I have a request: please put the “Report comment” to the side of the thumbs-up/down. Sorry scoobs, meant to give you the ole thumbs-up.
