Update: According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Breshad Perriman did not suffer a torn ACL and should be fine for the regular season.
In a non-contact practice on Thursday, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman was hurt catching a pass on a fade pattern. He complained about swelling which led to an MRI.
Perriman will visit a specialist, Dr. James Andrews on Monday, but it looks Perriman has suffered a partially torn ACL in his left knee. This will likely lead to season-ending surgery.
Perriman was turning heads this offseason and was returning to the elite pass catching threat that made him a first round pick for the Ravens two years ago before missing all of last year with a torn PCL in his right knee.
The Baltimore Ravens are unsure of the severity of the injury and believe the receiver could miss a couple of months or a full season, the source said.
It’s a wait and see for the Ravens and fantasy owners, but odds are, Steve Smith, Mike Wallace, and Kamar Aiken will be the Ravens top three pass catchers for 2016.
