Rookie tailback Terrance West, expected to be a key part of the Browns’ backfield, was one of six Cleveland players placed on the non-football injury list on Wednesday, according to the NFL’s daily transaction report.

On his Twitter account, West said he passed the club’s conditioning test and was “healthy” and “ready to go.” However, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal and Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer both reported West was on the non-football injury list because of the conditioning test.

A third-round pick from Towson, West appears the primary contender to veteran Ben Tate for carries in Cleveland’s backfield. The Browns’ first training camp practice is Saturday, giving West time to get off the list.

Other Browns placed on the non-football injury list Wednesday were linebacker Tank Carder, offensive tackle Chris Faulk, defensive tackle Jacobbi McDaniel, offensive guard Jeremiah Warren and defensive end Billy Winn. Per the Beacon Journal, Faulk, McDaniel, Warren and Winn were put on the list because of the conditioning test.

The Browns also made several other transactions Wednesday. They added offensive tackle Abasi Salimu, an undrafted free free agent from Nicholls State, on waivers from St. Louis. Cleveland also waived three veteran players: defensive back Royce Adams, linebacker Brandon Magee and wide receiver Conner Vernon.

The Browns have 88 players on the roster.

    This guy is a compulsive liar. Great job Farmer. Way to trade up for this stiff who couldn’t get 100 yards against a defense that had no guy over 250 lbs on it vs North Dakota St.

    This guy also claimed that the Ravens were going to take him before the Browns stepped in front of them only to have his agent deny that to be the case.

    The only reason I can think that Haslem makes these idiotic hires is because he wants to avoid having to appear on Hard Knocks by having a new coach every 2 years. He has picked the worst GMs in the history of the NFL.

    Since 1999 there hasn’t been one GM they have had that has a clue. I can pick better players than these morons that run the Browns

    This guy is gonna be the next great RB! I saw him in college & the Browns really got a steal leapfrogging the Ravens in the draft for him.

    And some point these “conditioning tests” will come under challenge. Pass/Fail seems to be subjective.

    Two apparently injury prone players in the Cleveland backfield, a largely unproven, journeyman quarterback and an alcoholic rookie quarterback to back him up.

    Hmmm… looks like all is normal at the Factory of Sadness.

    If this rookie running back can’t pass the conditioning test, I’d say that the Ravens were lucky that the Browns drafted this guy first.

    Did West injure himself during the conditioning test?

    Maybe its time to stop putting pictures of your new cars and fancy clothes on instagram and hit the weight room Terrance. Nothing shouts ready for training camp like failing a conditioning test as a running back……….
