Haloti Ngata's conditioning and readiness for the start of training camp was a popular topic around the Ravens the past couple of years.
Now, it has come up with Ngata's new team.
Acquired by the Detroit Lions from the Ravens in March, Ngata was placed on the active/non-football injury list ahead of the Lions' first practice. It isn't clear why Ngata isn't available to practice, though the NFL Network is reporting that the 31-year-old is dealing with a minor hamstring injury.
Ngata remains on the Lions' active roster and can be taken off the NFI list at any time to start practicing, so the latest news isn't a huge deal. However, Ngata's recent history - he failed his conditioning test with the Ravens in 2012, sustaining a hamstring injury in the process - makes the latest developments worth a mention.
It's obviously not the ideal way to start training camp with a new team, but Ngata has plenty of time to get ready for the season.
