Perriman 'Will Be Fine' To Play In 2016 Season

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman was hurt catching the ball during Thursday's offseason training activity, but the severity of the injury may not be as season-ending as we once thought.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Perriman does not have a torn ACL and will likely be fine to play during the 2016 season.

The Ravens' Dr. James Andrews examined Perriman and determined the 2015 first-round pick may not have a significant tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. It's possible that Perriman's injury will heal on its own given the proper medical attention.

Here's to hoping they won't lose Perriman for a second straight season.

The Ravens are holding a press conference later today and it is expected John Harbaugh will make an official statement about Perriman.
