Breshad Perriman is still as fast as ever and believes he'll be ready for Week 1

Breshad Perriman is still as fast as ever and believes he'll be ready for Week 1

OWINGS MILLS – Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman believes he will be on the field Week 1, and is approaching his return to practice that way.

The former first-round pick also said he was as fast as he ever, despite the two knee injuries that have kept him from playing a game since the Ravens made him a first-round draft pick in 2015.

“I’m attacking it now like I will be ready (Week 1) and I think I will,” Perriman said a day after being activated off the PUP list.

Perriman did admit that he needed to improve his on-field chemistry with starting quarterback Joe Flacco. The Ravens only have two preaseason games remaining — Saturday against the Lions, and Sept. 1 against the Saints.

“Probably have some work to do,” Perriman said. “Haven’t been out there with Joe for a minute. It shouldn’t take that long. I feel like we’ll get it done.’”

Smiling after practice, and talking confidently about his future, Perriman looked like a person who believed his serious injuries were behind him.

When Perriman partially tore his ACL two months ago, there was concern he may have suffered another season-ending injury. Instead, Perriman escaped surgery, and has believed ever since that he would be back on the field this season.  

“It was scary, but at the same time (I) kept faith,” said Perriman.

Perriman has a new look this year, cutting off his dreadlocks earlier this summer.

“I don’t know why, Perriman said. “I just woke up and decided to do it.”

Perriman said there were pros and cons to shedding so much hair.

“It gets cold sometimes,” Perriman said. “I cut it, I weighed myself, and I lost three or four pounds.”

Now Perriman wants to shed the label of being injury-prone.

“Great seeing Breshad out there,” said Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro. “He’s worked so hard. Behind the scenes, nobody sees the work he puts in, he’s such a quiet and humble guy. But he’s in here working out all the time, just trying to get right.”

Terrell Suggs jokes 'Who's the new guy?' when Breshad Perriman returns to Ravens practice

Terrell Suggs jokes 'Who's the new guy?' when Breshad Perriman returns to Ravens practice

OWINGS MILLS – Upon seeing wide receiver Breshad Perriman on the practice field Tuesday morning, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs couldn’t resist.

“Who’s the new guy?” Suggs said loudly as he walked past Perriman. “Can he play?”

The Ravens certainly think Perriman can play, and hope that he will be playing soon. Seeing Perriman on the field Tuesday was a welcome sight for the organization after his two serious knee injuries, but the timetable for his first game action remained uncertain.

Perriman was running smoothly and being put through drills by wide receiver coach Bobby Engram during the early portion of practice that the media was allowed to watch.

The Ravens have two preseason games remaining – at home Saturday against the Lions, and Sept. 1 at New Orleans. The Ravens’ regular-season opener is Sept. 11 against the Bills.

That doesn’t give Perriman much time to be ready for game reps Week 1.  But the more practice time he can get without setbacks, the closer he comes to taking the field for the first time since being drafted in 2015.

Don’t expect Suggs to stop giving Perriman grief. But just like the rest of his teammates, Suggs was glad to see Perriman on the field, not in the training room.
