Considering he still hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring Aug. 1, the third-year receiver essentially can be ruled out for Thursday's preseason game in Miami. The Ravens don't have much incentive to rush Perriman back into action, as he doesn't seem to have any real competition for the No. 3 receiver role. There was some thought he might push Mike Wallace and/or Jeremy Maclin for playing time in two-wide formations, but Perriman missed out on his chance to make a case during training camp. Wallace and Maclin were healthy throughout camp and are locked in as the top two options -- in some order -- in Baltimore's passing game. Joe Flacco (back) is still absent from practice and may miss the entire preseason, but the team remains optimistic about his Week 1 availability.
Perriman (hamstring) is doubtful to play in THursday's preseason opener against the Redskins, Garrett Downing of the team's official site reports.
The third-year wideout has missed several practices as a result of a hamstring injury, which makes him highly unlikely to take the field Thursday. The Ravens will continue to treat Perriman with caution as they expect him to have a starting role in the offense this season, so they won't risk him aggravating the injury in an exhibition. Look for more updates on Perriman when the team returns to practice.
Perriman will not be rushed back to the practice field until his hamstring injury is fully healed, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The third-year wideout suffered a hamstring injury Tuesday and missed his second consecutive practice Thursday. Considering the amount of injuries the Ravens have already endured this offseason, it's not surprising to see them handling Perriman's injury with extreme care. According to Zrebiec, there's no word yet on when Perriman will be back on the field, but there's no indication at this time that his status for Week 1 is in jeopardy.
Perriman (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Perriman hurt his hamstring toward the end of Tuesday's practice, and while coach John Harbaugh initially said he doesn't think the injury is serious, the third-year wideout apparently will sit out for at least one day. A significant injury would mar his summer preparation for a third time in three years, as Perriman suffered a season-ending knee injury early in training camp as a rookie and then missed most of last year's camp with another knee injury. Zrebiec expects Perriman to be out for a while, which would be more bad news for a Baltimore offense that's heavily depending on its wideouts after already losing RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) and TE Crockett Gillmore (knee) for the entire season.
Perriman left Tuesday's practice early after his hamstring tightened up, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.
Speaking just a few minutes after the incident occurred, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the injury doesn't appear serious. Perriman has no real competition for the No. 3 wideout job, but any missed practice time will hurt his chances of making a push to take away snaps and targets from Mike Wallace and/or Jeremy Maclin. The Ravens figure to heavily rely on three-wide formations this season, after losing fullback Kyle Juszczyk in free agency and then dealing with an onslaught of injuries and suspensions at tight end. Perriman figures to play more than half of the team's offensive snaps even if he doesn't get much playing time in two-wide formations.
