Ravens optimistic WR Breshad Perriman will play Week 1

It looks like quarterback Joe Flacco isn't the only injured Baltimore Ravens player on track for the season opener.

The Ravens are "very optimistic" wide receiver Breshad Perriman will play Sept. 10 in Cincinnati, coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday.

"That's barring any kind of setback," Harbaugh added.

Perriman, the team's 2015 first-round pick, hasn't practiced since suffering a significant hamstring injury on Aug. 1. He isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason finale, which means he has only played in one preseason game in three NFL seasons.
