The Ravens will have their first full-squad practice of training camp Thursday and one of their high-profile free agent acquisitions might not be on the field.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged Wednesday that Mike Wallace did not pass the team's conditioning test, which he'll need to do before he's permitted to practice with the team. Wallace took the test early Wednesday and Harbaugh said he hit five of six benchmarks but was unable to make the final one.
Wallace could get another opportunity to pass the test on Thursday. The Ravens will have their first practice at 9 a.m. He'll start training camp on the non-football injury list until he passes.
The Ravens are known for having one of the more difficult conditioning tests in the league. In the past, several veterans, including Haloti Ngata, Jacoby Jones and Lardarius Webb, have failed the test.
The Ravens signed Wallace to a two-year, $11.5 million contract in March. The soon-to-be 30-year-old receiver had just 39 catches for 473 yards and two touchdowns with the Minnesota Vikings last season.
