Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman is in jeopardy of missing his second straight NFL season, after suffering a partially torn ACL in his left knee, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. According to the report, and confirmed by a source to CSN, Perriman is scheduled to visit Monday with Dr. James Andrews to determine if Perriman will need arthroscopic surgery, or major knee surgery. If major surgery is necessary, Perriman could be out until 2017.
This is potentially devastating news for Perriman, who has never played an NFL snap after being the Ravens’ first-round pick in 2015. He missed all of last season with a partially torn PCL in his right knee, suffered on the first day of 2015 training camp. It was originally thought Perriman would return at some point last season, but he suffered a setback during pre-game warmups during the season and never returned.
Perriman was on the field running routes during the OTA practice on June 7 that was open to the media. However, the Ravens continued with closed OTA’s practices during the week, and Perriman apparently suffered the injury at some point later in the week.
The Ravens addressed their need for depth threat speed at wide receiver by signing Mike Wallace during free agency and drafting wide receiver Chris Moore in the fourth round. However, the Ravens hoped Perriman would be healthy and begin a promising career. Instead, he may sidelined – again.
