Ravens place receiver Breshad Perriman on injured reserve

Tuesday November 17th, 2015

The Baltimore Ravens have placed rookie receiver Breshad Perriman on injured reserve, ending his season.

Perriman, Baltimore’s first round pick out of Central Florida, injured his knee during the preseason and has not appeared in a game this season. He tweaked the injury in warmups during Week 3 and had a minor procedure done on it. He has not practiced since.

The Ravens are 2–7 and without injured veteran Steve Smith for the rest of the season, and had hoped Perriman could return for the team’s final stretch.

“Breshad has worked hard to come back from his injury, but, after discussing his current condition with our medical staff and Breshad, we have decided that putting him on injured reserve for the remainder of the season is our best course of action,” general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement.

Baltimore moves forward with starting receivers Kamar Aiken and Chris Givens.
