OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie has finally arrived at training camp, although he has not practiced because of a strained muscle in his back.
McKinnie missed the first three practices of camp last week and was subject to a $30,000 fine each day, under terms of the 2011 collective bargaining agreement.
McKinnie showed up Sunday night, according to coach John Harbaugh, who says he had "a very good conversation" with the 354-pound tackle.
Harbaugh says McKinnie is not ready to practice yet, and when he returns may have to fight to get back his starting job on the left side. Harbaugh says, "It's become a competition."
Meanwhile, Harbaugh says tight end Dennis Pitta might have broken his hand and "needs to get it repaired."
