After a nagging PCL injury sidelined the rookie wide out Breshad Perriman, every purple & black fan is ready to witness the expected sensation. Good news, Breshad says his injuries are a thing of the past.
During media availability Breshad Perriman was asked if he is 100 percent back, and how good if feels to be back on the field, "Yes, I don't even think about it anymore," Perriman stated. "I feel great." "It feels really good. It feels amazing. I feel like a kid in a candy store, so I'm very happy."
No doubt we all are with last years wide receiver depth taking quite the toll. Not only was Perriman absent, but Michael Campanaro was lost early in the 2015-2016 season. Half-way through the Ravens also lost number one wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. Baltimore ended up trading for Chris Givens, and Kamar Aiken stepped up, but now with Perriman back and free agent acquisition Mike Wallace the depth chart is filling up rather quickly. Perriman also is very thankful for working alongside Mike Wallace.
"It's really good. He always gives me tips on how to beat defenders, especially in man coverage and press coverage," Breshad said. "It's a lot. I try to take some things from each person on the team -- each receiver. He's been a great mentor teaching me things on the field."
Things did get personal during the end of his media availability, asking about the death of former teammate and friend Tray Walker, and also his father's health issues. "It's been crazy. 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," Perriman said. "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."
One of the final questions during the segment asked about his father's health currently. "He's doing better," said Breshad. "Thank you."
Overall a few awesome takeaways. From the sounds of it, his father is recovering rather well from a brain aneurysm, and that can't be special enough. Just like Breshad tweeted:
Just a matter of time, me and my Ol boy will be leaving the hospital together. #faithandprayer— Breshad Perriman (@B_Perriman11) May 4, 2016
On May 27, it happened.
My Ol boy is starting chapter 2 today! He's leaving the hospital and on his way to a rehab center. Full recovery coming soon!! #sup— Breshad Perriman (@B_Perriman11) May 27, 2016
The other factors here, Breshad himself stating he's now 100 percent, and the injury is no longer something to think of. He's learning on the practice field from fellow teammates, ready to become a pro player.
