Wide receiver Breshad Perriman has a chance of playing in his first game for the Baltimore Ravens.
Perriman, a 2015 first-round draft pick, will make his Ravens debut in Thursday's preseason finale in New Orleans if he is cleared by doctors. He has missed every preseason and regular-season game since being the No. 26 overall pick 16 months ago because of two knee injuries.
"If he can play, he will play," coach John Harbaugh said after Monday's practice. "I do want to see him playing before he gets in a regular-season game. That's something we would want to see him do if he can. But that will be up to the docs."
Perriman has not missed a day of practice since being activated off the physically-unable-to-perform list on Aug. 23. He warmed up before Saturday's preseason game before not suiting up. The Ravens are expected to start Steve Smith Sr. and Mike Wallace in the Sept. 11 opener against the Buffalo Bills, but Perriman should be either the team's No. 3 or No. 4 receiver. Kamar Aiken will also be in the mix.
