Ravens' Breshad Perriman shows little effects from knee injury in first practice back

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman participated in his first practice in over two months on Tuesday, and it didn't take long for the 2015 first-round pick to take his first shot of the year.

"Who is the new guy," linebacker Terrell Suggs said when spotting Perriman. "Can he play?"

Perriman, the No. 26 overall player taken a year ago, was on the field for the first time since partially tearing the anterior cruciate ligament on June 9. Not wearing a brace on that left knee, he showed little effects from the knee injury in running routes and making cuts.

Though he wasn't running at full speed, he showed no hesitation in any of the drills. It did appear that Perriman had a slight limp when he was walking in between drills.

During the media viewing portion of practice, Perriman only participated in individual drills. He ran routes and cut around cones for about 20 minutes while the rest of the team worked on special teams. Perriman later caught passes in the red zone from all four quarterbacks, including Joe Flacco. There were a couple of times when Perriman caught the ball with one hand.

The next challenge for Perriman is to get into football shape, according to coach John Harbaugh. It's unknown whether Perriman will play in Saturday's preseason game.
