Jacoby Jones placed on non-football injury list

USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens' passing offense took a blow as their second receiver failed a conditioning test.

Jacoby Jones was placed on the Baltimore Ravens' non-football injury list, after failing a conditioning test which involved interval runs, according to the Baltimore Sun.

It was expected that Jones would fill a void left by Anquan Boldin, who was traded to San Francisco this offseason largely due to his cap figure. The Super Bowl champions felt the cap crunch, but felt that Jones could be a complementary receiver to Torrey Smith after a dominant playoff run with the Ravens.

Jones will have more opportunities to pass the tests and deem himself football-ready, but the door could be open for Baltimore to explore other veteran options at wide receiver as a fallback plan. The Ravens waited until the 7th round to select a receiver in April's draft, despite their lack of quality depth. Aaron Mellette has promise, but the small-school receiver is too raw to have an immediate impact.

Unless a veteran is brought in the favorite to get early snaps is third-year receiver Tandon Doss. He caught seven passes in 2012, totaling 123 yards and a touchdown. He has good size, but is otherwise an unknown quantity.
