OWINGS MILLS – Rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman had an MRI Monday on his injured knee, Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed. No further damage to Perriman’s knee was detected. That left the Ravens still optimistic that Perriman would return before much longer. Perriman has not practiced this month.
“It’s just gone slower than our doctors anticipated that it would,” Harbaugh said. “So we went to get an MRI, to see if there’s something in there that we didn’t know about, and there wasn’t. It was normal. It’s just still a little bit of swelling, it’s still a little bit of (a) sprain. That’s what they call it. Got to keep working on it and get it back.”
Perriman would seem likely to miss the rest of this week in Philadelphia – joint practices against the Eagles on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, followed by Saturday’ night’s preseason game. That would leave Perriman with two preseason games and three weeks of practice to prepare for Week 1 against the Broncos.
That’s not an ideal situation for Perriman to make an immediate impact. However, it was good news that Perriman’s latest MRI did not provide bad news.
