Ben Cleveland Passes Conditioning Test, Takes Practice Field

G Ben Cleveland

Ravens guard Ben Cleveland has passed his conditioning test and taken the field for the first time at training camp.

Cleveland missed four practices, including Saturday's practice at M&T Bank Stadium, as he was on the non-football injury list. Monday is the team's first padded practice.

"It was great that he was here," Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "He passed [his conditioning test] this morning. Then, he did a leg lift. He did his legs. Then, he had practice today in the heat. So, he's had a full day. He'll sleep well tonight."

The giant (6-foot-6, 357 pounds) second-year blocker now enters arguably the best competition for a starting spot at Ravens training camp. Last week, Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman said Ben Powers is in the lead for now, but Tyre Phillips and Cleveland will also be pushing to be the Week 1 starter.
