Earlier today, we wrote how the Baltimore Ravens’ injury luck might finally be changing after an unlucky 2015 season.
Not so fast.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting wide receiver Breshad Perriman has suffered a partially torn ACL.
Update on newest knee injury for Ravens WR Breshad Perriman: He suffered a partially torn ACL in his left knee… https://t.co/XeLADK9ryr

As Schefter says in his expanded Facebook post, he will visit Dr. James Andrews Monday to determine the course of action. Obviously, he’s at real risk of missing the entire year and at best, a large chunk of the season.
Perriman didn’t play a single down last season after suffering a torn PCL in his other knee. The injury news was brushed off by the time as minor but as the season wore on, it became apparent it was much more serious. He was officially placed on IR in November.
Out of Central Florida, he was selected 26th in the 2015 draft. Perriman was known for his speed and big play ability. How two knee injuries affect that remains to be seen and we won’t really know until next season at the earliest.
The rest of the Ravens’ wide receiver depth chart includes: Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken, and Mike Wallace.
Perriman injured other knee from last year on a back-shoulder fade — non-contact. Andrews will scope it & decide to repair or reconstruct
