    NEW YORK: The Baltimore Ravens were fined and docked three days of off-season practice time by the NFL on Thursday (Friday in Manila) after a workout violation of wearing pads during a mini-camp for rookies.

    The amount of the fines to the team and coach John Harbaugh was not disclosed.

    The Ravens will cancel next week’s planned June 1-3 organized team activities, but they still will have seven such workout sessions as well as full mini-camp and training camp practice sessions for players.

    The Ravens used pads for a five-minute portion of a special teams exercise involving punts and punt coverage during a rookie mini-camp. NFL-union rules do not allow pads to be used before July pre-seasonb training camps.

    “We made a mistake and we are sorry for that,” the Ravens said in a statement. “We accept the NFL discipline.”
