Ravens WR Breshad Perriman, who missed his entire rookie season after injuring his knee in the first training camp practice, still isn’t cleared to play football. However, he should be ready to do so when football activities resume.
“I can anticipate at some point this spring that he’ll be out there, ready to play,” GM Ozzie Newsome said.
After being placed on injured reserve in November, Perriman said he suffered a partially torn PCL on July 30, then tore it more while trying to test the knee out before a game on Sept. 27. He didn’t practice again after having a minor arthroscopic surgery.
Due to the opportunity in the Ravens' receiving corps, Perriman looked like a nice sleeper prior to his injury. Steve L Smith is expected to return and Kamar Aiken emerged as a viable WR2, so Perriman is not guaranteed starter's snaps even though he brings deep speed that neither Smith nor Aiken possess.
