After weeks of relative inactivity, at least publicly, Ravens rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman ramped up his on-field work Sunday before the game against the Oakland Raiders at O.Co Coliseum.
In his pregame work with wide receivers coach Bobby Engram, Perriman jogged around the field and caught passes over his shoulder, and made some cuts, which is a progression from what he's done before other games this season.
Previously, Perriman worked on his hands and caught passes, but was stationary as he did so.
Perriman also was running the length of the field at the end of his workout — not at full speed, but in a healthy jog.
The first-round pick (25th overall) from Central Florida has been out since July 31, a day after he banged his knee on the ground in the first practice of training camp on July 30. What was initially diagnosed as a bruised knee was eventually classified as a sprain, but with this public display of activity his debut appears to be on the horizon.
