Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones has been placed on the non-football injury list. He didn't pass the mandatory conditioning test, according to a source. The Ravens require that all players pass a series of timed interval runs before being cleared to practice. In the past, several players have been placed on the non-football injury list for not passing the conditioning test. He missed time during the offseason because of his participation on "Dancing With the Stars," but returned to participate in organized team activities and the Ravens' mandatory minicamp. Jones is currently the starting wide receiver opposite Torrey Smith on the Ravens' depth chart. Although Jones is designated as the favorite to earn a starting job with Anquan Boldin traded to the San Francisco 49ers, he'll face competition for the position. “Jacoby right now is the No. 2 guy,” receivers coach Jim Hostler said this spring. “So right now, Torrey and Jacoby are starting, so that’s definitely going to be more than Jacoby did last year.” Last season, Jones operated as the third receiver and caught 30 passes for 406 yards and one touchdown while making the Pro Bowl as a kick returner. He's slated to compete with several players for a starting job, including Tandon Doss, Deonte Thompson, David Reed and LaQuan Williams. “It wasn’t like last year when we had two guys that were the two front-runners and everybody is playing for that third and fourth spot,” Hostler said. “Now, everybody is playing for that second spot.”
