Rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman appeared to suffer a setback on his way back from a sprained knee Sunday before the Ravens' home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Perriman, the 26th overall pick in the May draft, returned to practice Thursday after eight weeks out. Perriman suffered a knee injury on July 30, the first day of training camp. He was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, and appeared to be moving as smoothly during pregame warmups Sunday as he has since the injury.
He and practice squad receivers Jeremy Butler and Jeremy Ross were put through their paces by wide receivers coach Bobby Engram, and Perriman moved well until he pulled up on a deep ball. Perriman didn't go to the ground, but was hunched over in apparent pain behind the end zone.
Engram checked on Perriman, who after a few minutes walked gingerly back to the sidelines. He seemed to be favoring his injured right knee on the walk back. Perriman stayed on the field and played catch with another coach, but didn't run another route.
