The Ravens got some great news today as it turns out wide receiver Breshad Perriman does not have a torn ACL and “will be fine for the season,” a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Perriman received a stem cell injection today and barring further aggravation of the knee, it sounds like he’ll be ready to go for Week 1.
Perriman was busy working his way back to 100% from his lingering PCL issue when he suffered an injury to his ACL. Perriman missed his entire rookie season due to his PCL and a full ACL tear would have meant two consecutive lost seasons. Now, Perriman is cleared to use his blazing speed to help the Ravens in 2016.
The former UCF star impressed at the combine with his speed as he ran a 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.
