Wallace passes conditioning test, Dixon out with knee injury


OWINGS MILLS, Md. — After missing the first practice of the summer on Thursday, Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace has passed his conditioning test and participating in Friday’s workout.
The eighth-year wideout failed on his first try Wednesday and was officially placed on the non-football injury list. Though not a great impression to make at the start of training camp, a veteran or two failing the Ravens’ challenging conditioning test has been a common occurrence in the John Harbaugh era and is not a real concern in the big picture.
Also absent on Thursday after failing his conditioning test, cornerback Jerraud Powers was once again missing on Friday morning. Powers, 29, is considered the favorite to be Baltimore’s slot cornerback in the nickel and dime packages this season.
Rookie running back Kenneth Dixon was not practicing on Friday after suffering an MCL sprain to his left knee on the first day. Other players absent from the session included wide receivers Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee), linebackers Terrell Suggs (Achilles) and Elvis Dumervil (foot), and running backs Trent Richardson (knee) and Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot).
