Perryman (ankle) is on track to practice this week, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Perryman is at the front end of the original 8-10 week recovery timetable, but due to the Chargers Week 9 bye, he cannot come off injured reserve until the team's Week 10 game against the Patriots. The 23-year-old can still return to practice this week per the IR-return rules, and will likely ease in to help avoid any setbacks.
Perryman (ankle) is currently on schedule in his recovery from ankle surgery, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Head coach Anthony Lynn added that Perryman "may be ahead of schedule." The 23-year-old still has a long way to go in his recovery from mid-August ankle surgery, but if all goes well he could potentially be designated to return off injured reserve following Week 8.
Perryman (ankle) underwent surgery Tuesday and is expected to be out 8-to-10 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Perryman tore a ligament in his left ankle during the Chargers' preseason opener Sunday. He wasn't initially expected to need surgery, which is why his initial timetable for a return was originally 4-to-6 weeks. With Perryman out, Nigel Harris and Korey Toomer are the likeliest candidates to fill the starting role next to Jatavis Brown.
Perryman (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for at least the first four weeks of the regular season, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
Perryman suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday's exhibition matchup against the Seahawks. Surgery could still be in the picture for the 24-year-old. In his absence, Jatavis Browin projects to take over middle linebacker duties, while Korey Toomer figures to slot in as the opposite inside linebacker.
Perryman is expected to miss 4-6 weeks due to an ankle injury, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.
Perryman injured his left ankle in the first quarter during Sunday's blowout loss to the Seahawks and was taken to the locker room via cart. He returned to the sidelines later in the contest wearing a walking boot and using crutches and is expected to undergo an MRI early this week. With Perryman out, Jatavis Brown is expected to take over as the starting middle linebacker, with Korey Toomer slotting in as the opposite inside linebacker.
