Rookie WR Perriman practices with Ravens


The Sports Xchange

First-round draft pick Breshad Perriman practiced with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday for the first time after missing eight weeks with a knee injury.

The rookie wide receiver suffered a sprained PCL in late July and recently began working on individual drills. He didn’t appear to be running at full speed during the portion of Thursday’s practice open to the media.

It’s considered doubtful that Perriman plays Sunday for the Ravens against the Cincinnati Bengals (2-0) or next Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. A more probable return date for Perriman would be Oct. 11 against the Cleveland Browns.

Without Perriman, the Ravens have relied mostly on wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. and tight end Crockett Gillmore in the passing game during the first two weeks of the season.

The speedy Perriman was drafted in the first round this year out of UCF.
