Breshad Perriman's injury labeled 'grade 2 hamstring strain'
- Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports that Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman’s most recent injury had been labeled a “Grade 2 hamstring strain”. The 2015 first-round pick missed his entire rookie season with what was thought to be a minor knee injury, but this injury should linger for only about two more weeks, according to Zrebiec.
- Perriman was drafted to help QB Joe Flacco stretch the field, and he showed glimpses of that in 2016. Perriman had a deep target percentage of 28.1% (the percentage of deep targets per target) which ranked ninth among 78 qualifying wide receivers.
- Perriman generally struggled throughout the season however, achieving an overall grade of 56.4 on 486 total snaps which ranked 84th among 115 wide receivers.
