(Updated: 12:35 p.m.)
As rookies, quarterbacks, and veterans returning from injury take the field for the first practice of the summer on Tuesday, the Ravens will be without several players to start training camp.
Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs was placed on the non-football injury list as he continues to recover from surgery on his partially-torn Achilles tendon. The 29-year-old’s appearance on the list was obviously expected, but linebacker Courtney Upshaw and rookie tight end Bruce Figgins were also included on the list at the start of training camp.
The 35th overall pick in April’s draft, Upshaw tweeted Tuesday morning that he had to sit out the team’s first walk-through after failing the conditioning test. However, the rookie said he has since passed the test and was cleared to practice on Monday.
The Ravens also placed four players on the active physically unable to perform list, including defensive end Pernell McPhee (knee surgery), offensive linemen Jah Reid (calf) and Kelechi Osemele (leg), and wide receiver David Reed (torn ACL). Reed continues to recover from a knee injury suffered last December while the other three dealt with injuries during OTAs and are expected to be ready to practice soon.
Osemele revealed through his Twitter account that he passed the conditioning test on Sunday.
Players placed on the non-football injury and active PUP lists are eligible to return to action at any time, but they are unable to return to the list after practicing. Players on these lists count against the 90-man offseason roster but remain eligible for the reserve PUP list, which sidelines a player for the first six weeks of the regular season while not counting against the 53-man roster.
