Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Michael Pierce was sent off the practice field on the first day of mandatory minicamp, Kevin Patra of reports.

The 26-year-old lineman was removed from the field for lack of condition. Coach John Harbaugh talked with Pierce after the stretching portion of practice, and the defensive tackle left the field. 

"He's not ready to practice from a safety standpoint and for his own health," Harbaugh said, via ESPN. "We recognize that and pulled him off."

Pierce, a restricted free agent, didn't attend previous voluntary offseason workouts. He is set to make a non-guaranteed base salary of $3.095 million in 2019. He'll be a free agent in 2020.

According to ESPN's Jamison Hensley, the defensive tackle looked heavier than his listed playing weight of 340 pounds.

"He's not ready for this practice yet," Harbaugh said. "I think you could probably tell."
