Ravens Receivers vs. Washington Secondary

The number one concern for the Ravens is that Breshad Perriman is still out with a knee injury that occurred on the opening day of full-team practices. The coaching staff keeps telling us he’s a week away from returning, but that’s been the case since three weeks ago. There really is no timetable for his return.

In the meantime, the rest of the receiving corps has done well when they’ve taken the field. Steve Smith has been dogging his opponents this preseason. Darren Waller has been impressive lately. Kamar Aiken and Jeremy Butler have each had moments where they have stood out. Baltimore has talent at the position, but no one of the likes of Perriman.

While the Skins front seven has been phenomenal this preseason, the secondary has been average at best. Washington is playing with several injuries in the defensive backfield. DeAngelo Hall is expected to play, but the Ravens would be wise to attack the Redskins through the air.
