Terrence Cody flunks conditioning test
WESTMINSTER, Md.óBaltimore Ravens massive rookie nose guard Terrence "Mount" Cody flunked the team's mandatory conditioning test and was held out of the first practice of training camp.
"He didn't pass the conditioning test," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Part of our process is everybody has to pass the conditioning test to be sure that they're ready to compete. Our practices are fast. We've got to be sure guys are physically ready to practice. So when he passes the conditioning test, he'll practice."
Cody is listed at 6-foot-4, 349 pounds, but the second-round draft pick from Alabama is likely a bit heavier than that.
However, he's in much better condition than the sloppy 370 pounds he tipped the scales at during the Senior Bowl.
Harbaugh said he's not surprised that Cody, a big run-stuffing defensive lineman, didn't pass the test.
"I'm not surprised," Harbaugh said. "Every year, certain guys struggle with that.There's a certain level of expectation of conditioning that goes with being an NFL player, especially for this team. So, he's going to have to get himself into the kind of shape he needs to be in. We expect all our guys to be in world-class shape. So, he'll be in world-class shape soon enough."
