Just three months after it looked like he would be out for a second consecutive season, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman has been activated off the PUP list.

He will reportedly take it slow in the coming practices as head coach John Harbaugh seems wary of bringing him back too early. His concern is justified, as Perriman has yet to suit up for the team that drafted him before the 2015 season. However, Harbaugh did make it clear that once Perriman is fully in shape and ready to go, he will play.
It seemed early on in preseason that the Ravens misfortune with injuries from 2015 was set to carry over in 2016 thanks to several of their major contributors starting the year on PUP. Now with players such as Perriman, Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil all coming off of the list, the team is getting healthy at just the right time.
