Finally. Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman has returned to practice. After suffering a knee injury on the first day of training camp on July 30th, Perriman has been out of action for so long that everyone started to speculate in so many ways from whether he would be back ready to play sooner than people thought, to whether he would even suit up for the Ravens at all in the 2015 season.

Here is more info on Perriman's day via  BaltimoreRavens.com:

"Perriman did not participate in all the same work as his fellow wide receivers in Thursday’s practice (in the portion open to the media), but did do some of the positional drills, including some route-running and catching. The receivers didn’t seem to be going at full speed."

While it is great news that Perriman is in pads once again, he most likely will not suit up in week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He hasn't gotten enough reps in practice, and he didn't even have the opportunity to play in a preseason game.

It's easy to just try and throw Perriman into the lineup due to a lack of execution from the wide receiver position in the first-two weeks of the season. But the Ravens have to make sure Perriman's health is the first priority. The worst thing would be to rush Perriman back and he has a setback.
