More good news for the Ravens as coach John Harbaugh tells reporters that wide receiver Breshad Perriman has been removed from the PUP list (Twitter link via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com). Perriman passed his physical on Monday morning, clearing the way for his return to football.
Perriman was the taken with the No. 26 overall pick in last year’s draft. Unfortunately, he missed the entire season after spraining the PCL in his right knee on the first day of training camp. This June, Perriman suffered another knee injury, but fortunately he did not tear his ACL as initially feared.
More than a year ago, the former UCF star turned heads at the scouting combine with his 4.26 second 40-yard dash. Evaluators last year believed that Perriman’s NFL future was bright and, hopefully, that is still the case despite his setbacks. In his rundown of the Ravens’ rookie class for 2016, scouting guru Dave-Te Thomas couldn’t help but highlight Perriman, who is technically still a rookie.
