The main story line of this preseason has been Breshad Perriman's play, or actually, lack thereof. The Ravens' shiny new toy has been sidelined since Day 1 of Training Camp, going down with a reported PCL sprain. The injury has a timetable of six to eight weeks, meaning it's most likely that the rookie receiver will not be ready for a Week 1 debut.
Sound sort of familiar?
To some, Perriman's situation bears an eerie similarity to that of Odell Beckham's last year. And there is a little basis to that sentiment.
- Both 1st round selections
- Both gifted athletes
- Both missed practically all of training camp, preseason, and (most likely) multiple regular season games
- Both are wide receivers
- Both are NFL players
