According to Aaron Wilson, Ravens' wide receiver Marlon Brown has a back injury, but is considered day-to-day. The injury isn't considered serious at this time, but Brown did not practice Saturday.
Much like Matt Elam, Brown cannot afford to miss time as he competes for a starting wide receiver job in a very packed competition. Right now, he faces off against Breshad Perriman, Kamar Aiken and Steve Smith for one of likely two starting spots at wide receiver and more importantly, meaningful snaps in the regular season.
Marlon Brown came on in his rookie campaign by being a scoring freak, notching seven touchdowns in 14 games played. At 6-foot-5 and 214-pounds, Brown is a huge target for quarterback Joe Flacco and does exceptionally well in the redzone. Sadly for Brown, he had a major regression in 2014, halving his reception totals, and nearly cutting his targets in third with 24 receptions on 31 targets, all while not scoring the entire season.
Meanwhile, Breshad Perriman has a knee bruise but is expected to possibly miss more time as the injury is taking longer to heal than the Ravens had wanted. The injury is still not serious as the rookie wide receiver landed on his knee and caused some discomfort with the bruise, but Perriman could miss up to a week total.
Perriman has missed the last few days of practice after showing some positives early in camp without pads on. Cornerback Jimmy Smith liked what he saw out of Perriman so far in regards to his speed by commenting "he's fast!" From what I had seen of his time in camp, Perriman looked like a serious playmaker.
Catch of the day goes to Breshad Perriman over Kyle Arrington. Leaping grab— MatthewStevens (@MatthewS_balt) July 30, 2015
Breshad Perriman had a false start earlier today along with a bobble drop but has looked good overall.— MatthewStevens (@MatthewS_balt) July 30, 2015
