Perryman (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills Thursday but is still limited, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. Perryman sustained an LCL injury that kept him sidelined in the final seven games of the 2018 season. The 25-year-old -- as of May 21 -- isn't back to 100 percent, but is expected to be fully healthy for training camp come late July. The news that Perryman participated in 11-on-11 drills Thursday and appears to progressing bodes well for his 2018 workload, considering he's likely to be the starting middle linebacker for the Chargers when healthy.
Perryman (knee) isn't back to 100 percent yet but hopes to be good to go for training camp, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. Perryman suffered an LCL injury that ended his 2018 season, and he's still working with the team's medical staff as he aims to get back to full strength. He'll figure to resume his role as the team's starting middle linebacker when he returns to action.
Perryman (knee) is signing a two-year contract with the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 2015 second-round pick was previously scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent and would've been one of the top inside linebackers on the market. Perryman has missed 22 games in four NFL seasons, but he's never struggled to make an impact when healthy, averaging 5.4 tackles per game while doing solid work in coverage. He should be healthy for training camp after suffering a season-ending LCL injury in Week 10 of 2018.
Perryman (knee/hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. Four years, four different seasons in which Perryman failed to play a full 16-game season. Fluke injuries have certainly played their part in the past two seasons, including the latest season-ending ailment, an LCL injury that is expected to require surgery. That lack of durability could be potentially troublesome this offseason, as the Chargers will have to make a decision whether to re-sign their 2015 second-round pick or let the talented but oft-injured linebacker seek a different suitor come the summer. While that question will remain unanswered for a number of months, it's obvious as to who benefits the most from Perryman's unfortunate injury - Jatavis Brown, who registered a team-high 11 tackles in the win Sunday over the Raiders. The second-year linebacker had fallen out of favor with the Chargers coaching staff earlier this season, but injuries have depleted the depth to the point where Brown represents the only reliable option at middle linebacker. As a result, Brown should be a must-add in nearly all IDP formats, and the likes of Adrian Phillips and Hayes Pullard could also see a slight rise in counting stats as well based on a likely increase in snaps.
Perryman (knee/hamstring) will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with an LCL injury in his knee as well as a hamstring injury that likely requires surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. This is rough development for one of the top teams in the AFC, as Perryman started all nine games at middle linebacker before getting his foot caught in the turf during Sunday's victory over Oakland. The fourth-year linebacker is now looking at a 3-to-4 month recovery timeline and has a good shot of being ready to go for the start of OTAs in April. Meanwhile, the Chargers will need a number of linebackers to step up in Perryman's absence as the team prepares for a potential playoff push. With Kyzir White (knee) already on injured reserve, the Chargers figure to move Jatavis Brown to the middle while a combination of Uchenna Nwosu, Kyle Emanuel and Hayes Pullard fills in at outside linebacker.
