Ravens won't know more about Breshad Perriman's status until Tuesday

The Ravens are still bracing for the worst on Breshad Perriman, but his 2016 status remains unclear.

Breshad Perriman was seen by renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews today, but the visit brought no clarity as to the severity of the Ravens wide receiver's left knee injury.

The Ravens, though, will get a better idea Tuesday about the extent of the injury as Perriman will have arthroscopic surgery. That was the plan all along.

The 22-year-old receiver, who missed all of his rookie season last year with a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, was hurt during the team's final organized team activity last Thursday. A magnetic resonance imaging test taken a day later revealed what the Ravens believe to be a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament.

However, the knee scope will determine how significant the tear is in the left knee of the 2015 first-round pick.

The Ravens are bracing for the worst, which would be Perriman needing reconstructive knee surgery and missing his second consecutive season. However, it's possible that the damage won't necessitate a total knee reconstruction and Perriman could return at some point during the 2016 season.

Last October, Perriman had his right knee scoped and an injection in the knee to speed the healing. But he never was able to return to field. Before the latest injury, Perriman said he was 100 percent healthy and he certainly looked the part during the OTAs.
