Breshad Perriman Partially Tears ACL

4:06pm: The embattled wideout sustained the injury on a fade pattern during a non-contact drill, Hensley reports. The team did not know Perriman injured his knee on Thursday but only after the receiver complained of swelling on Friday, inducing an MRI, per Hensley.

4:01pm: Perriman will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, according to Rapoport (on Twitter), after which it will be determined if the wideout needs reconstructive knee surgery that would shelve him for the 2016 season. Perriman looks to have sustained the injury during the Ravens’ final OTA workout on Thursday, Jeff Zreibec of the Baltimore Sun reports (on Twitter).

3:50pm: Breshad Perriman appears to have encountered more turbulence en route to making his long-awaited NFL debut. The now-second-year Ravens wide receiver suffered a partially torn ACL in his left knee and is set to meet with Dr. James Andrews on Monday to gauge the next course of action, Adam Schefter and Jameson Hensley of report (Facebook link).

Potentially season-ending surgery will be discussed, according to the reporters. Perriman suffered the injury earlier this week, Ian Rapoport of tweets. The Ravens finished up their OTAs on Thursday and begin minicamp next week.

That would be a brutal blow to the 2015 first-rounder’s career, considering what transpired to hijack his rookie season. Perriman saw a partially torn PCL sideline him for the entirety of his rookie season after being expected to make his debut fairly early on in 2015. Perriman tore the PCL in his right knee last year.

We last heard the wideout was working his way back to 100% from the lingering PCL issue, and the 22-year-old target’s absence would put his potential in question. Baltimore selected Perriman with the No. 26 overall pick in 2015, and it’s possible the former Central Florida star will be two years behind his draft class in terms of NFL development.

As for the Ravens, Steve Smith backtracked on his retirement intentions following his own season-ending injury last year, and Kamar Aiken represented a pleasant surprise for the team. The Ravens signed Mike Wallace as well, so for 2016, they’re less exposed at the position than they were when Perriman’s rookie season vanished due to knee troubles.

    Tough break for him, at least it’s the other knee. Hope it’s a swift and full recovery

    Horrible for the Ravens. They overdrafted him and he can’t even stay healthy.

    When I first saw this in my feed, I died laughing because it’s the Ravens and I’m a Steelers fan, but in all honesty, I hope this dude gets a chance to play and make it big in the NFL. He’s been very unlucky so far and as a fan of football as whole and our rivalry, The more competition there is the better. Wish him the best and fast recovery.

    His biggest asset was his speed and ability to stretch the field. There wasn’t much else. Now that both knees have sustained tears, you have to wonder what he will bring to the table if/when he finally does see the field.

      That is all the Ravens need… they send a WR deep and Flacco airs it out. It’s rarely caught but the goal is to have defensive pass interference called, which happens frequently.
