The Ravens will also be without wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who has been placed on the non-football injury list because he didn’t pass the mandatory training camp conditioning test. He missed time during the offseason to join the popular reality series “Dancing With the Stars,” but returned to participate in organized team activities and the Ravens’ mandatory minicamp.
Last season, Jones was the team’s‘ third receiver and caught 30 passes for 406 yards and one touchdown while making the Pro Bowl as a kick returner. With Anquan Boldin having departed, Jones was expected to contend for the #2 receiver alongside Torrey Smith, according to receivers coach Jim Hostler:
“Jacoby right now is the No. 2 guy,” 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.”
“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.”
