According to multiple reports, Perriman suffered a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee this week. He injured his knee on the last day of the Ravens' OTAs.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Perriman will have the knee scoped this week. Per Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter, the procedure will be performed by Dr. James Andrews, who will determine whether the tear can be repaired with the scope or if a total reconstruction is neceesary.
According to Schefter, Perriman was hurt catching the ball on a fade pattern in Thursday's offseason training activity. It was a non-contact injury.
On Friday, he complained about swelling, which led to an MRI and the diagnosis, the source said.
No timetable has been set for the wideout's recovery window. That will come once Andrews is scoping Perriman's knee.
Perriman, who was selected 26th overall in the 2015 NFL draft out of Central Florida, suffered a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) sprain in his right knee on the first day of training camp last year. The Ravens placed Perriman on sending-ending injured reserve.
Remember, the Ravens added Mike Wallace in free agency this offseason. The veteran has had a couple down years, but it does seem like there will be opportunity -- certainly this summer -- to earn a role with Perriman sidelined. That opportunity will obviously increase depending on the extent of Perriman's surgery.
We'll follow up as needed.
