Things improving for Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman on and off the field

When Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman spoke to reporters after yesterday's organized team activity, he featured something he didn't show for most of last season: a smile.

Perriman has more to be happy about these days. He says he's 100 percent healthy after missing his entire rookie season with a knee injury sustained on the very first full-squad practice of training camp. And he also got some good news on the home front after his father, Brett, a former NFL wide receiver, continues his recovery from a stroke he suffered earlier this month.

Brett Perriman, 50, was transferred today to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta where he'll soon transition into the hospital's brain injury unit, and continue his rehabilitation. Perriman had been hospitalized in Florida since he had the stroke May 3.

"Still a long road ahead of him but with faith and prayers he will make a full recovery in no time," Breshad Perriman wrote on his Twitter account, adding "[a] full recovery is coming soon."

Breshad Perriman said in an interview yesterday that he has grown a lot from what has been a difficult year. Perriman struggled to deal with his inactivity last year and then his best friend on the Ravens, cornerback Tray Walker, died in March.

"It's been crazy," Perriman said. "I've been through a lot this offseason, but it's just making me stronger again and just learning to keep faith and pray a lot more. It's been rough. It still is rough from time to time, but I'm steady getting through it, pushing through it and keeping faith."
