The Ravens should soon get another look at wide receiver Breshad Perriman on the football field.
Last year's first-round pick continues to recover from a knee injury that cost him his entire rookie season, and the expectation is for him to be on the field when the Ravens hold organized team activities this spring.
"I don't know what percentage it is right now, but I know everybody seems to be happy with his progress," Head Coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday. "He looks strong."
Perriman went down with a sprained knee on the first day of training camp last year and never fully returned. He went through a few practices as a limited participant in September, but then suffered a setback in Week 3 and didn't practice again.
The Ravens have high expectations for the speedy wide receiver, and several team executives have said that Perriman's return is almost like having an extra first-round pick this season. Getting him on the field for the spring will give him time to get re-acclimated to playing football after a year on the sidelines, and then he'll have time to build a rapport with quarterback Joe Flacco in training camp.
Flacco is recovering from a knee injury of his own, having suffered a torn ACL on Nov. 23. Flacco has been rehabbing at the team facility all offseason and has drawn rave reviews for his progress.
The Ravens hoped at the start of his recovery that he would return in time for training camp, and Harbaugh said that is still the plan.
"The progress has been really right on schedule," he said. "We'll just have to see how he feels."
