Ravens' McKinnie: Just weight and see

Bryant McKinnie will cop to 386, but dont lay that 400 on him.

Appearing on Yahoo! Sports Radio Wednesday, the Ravens offensive tackle acknowledged he wasnt in shape when he started camp with the Vikings last season, but said reports that he was 400 pounds werent true.

I never was. That was exaggerated by the Vikings, said McKinnie, whos 6 feet 8.

Whatever the number was, the Vikings cut him, but McKinnie said his weight is much lower now after an off-season of working out and watching his diet, which includes having meals prepared for him by a chef and using a juicer given him by Ray Lewis.

Once you start being consistent and do it every day, it gets easier, McKinnie said of working to stay in shape.

With training camp a couple of weeks away, he put his weight at 350.

"The Ravens want him to be able to still have that conditioning to get through that fourth quarter, still play at a high level in the fourth quarter as well," McKinnie said.

Except for when he was suspended for four games in 2008 for violating the NFLs personal conduct policy, McKinnie has played in all 16 of his teams games every season since 2003.

Im the durable person on the field, he said.

And now theres less of him.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Hayden Hurst is actually all set for training camp

<em>This post has been updated with a correction to Hurst's injury status.</em>

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Some good news for Ravens fans: Despite reports earlier that a hamstring injury has left tight end Hayden Hurst 'questionable' to participate in training camp from Rotoworld, he said he's doing just fine. Hurst had hamstring issues previously but returned to practice. Last season, Hurst missed four games following foot surgery. After a previous version of this post was published, he tweeted that he is not questionable for camp. We regret the error. 

2. On "Good Morning Football," Maurice Jones-Drew called Earl Thomas the new Ed Reed. Jones-Drew says Thomas will have the biggest defensive impact on his new spot with the Ravens.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. ET deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
