Well it was a nice two week stretch of Breshad Perriman being a full participant in practice and getting in the game. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, a “minor calf issue kept Perriman out of practice.
Injuries are uncontrollable, but you have to wonder if this will be a continuous problem for Perriman. A “knee bruise” kept Perriman out of the 2015 season. He then partially tore his ACL this offseason. Getting banged up is part of football season and missing a practice or two throughout the season isn’t usually a big deal.
It is not time to freak out. If Perriman is back in practice tomorrow, any hysteria this story creates would look pretty silly. If Perriman plays on Sunday, nobody will care that he missed practice on a Wednesday.
When Perriman took the field against the Bills, he gave us one really big reason for excitement. Perriman made a fantastic 35 yard reception with a Bills defensive back draped all over him. When the Ravens drafted Perriman, it was with the promise that big plays were on their way. That was Perriman’s first big play, and it happened in his first game.
The Ravens offense has not really found it’s groove yet this season. Against the Bills, the Ravens offense showed promising flashes of brilliance. Perriman showed that he can be a huge part of the offense. The ability to make plays down the field does not go out of style. By now, monitoring his injury concerns is practically a past time of the Ravens faithful. We’ll keep you covered.
