With the 2016 NFL draft closed, teams and their respective players, along with their fans, are now focused on the unfolding events in the next few months before the 2016 season starts. As Super Bowl Odds still loom, this can also be a nerve-wracking period because players might be victims of dreadful injuries. In retrospect, last year’s off-season saw Dante Fowler Jr., the third overall draft pick, tearing his ACL at a rookie minicamp, which ruled him out of the entire 2015 NFL season. As such, the Jacksonville Jaguars missed his prominent fast pass-rush that they had already planned to depend on.

This off-season has already recorded some awful injuries, and some of them could affect the quality of play in the 2016 season games. The injuries could rest the affected players permanently throughout the season or have a negative impact on their preseason preparation during training camps. We will examine the injuries and surgeries that followed immediately after the close of last season, and if they will affect the 2016 season.

As stated by Pro Football Talk, Breshad Perriman, the wide receiver of the Baltimore Ravens, will not miss the start of the 2016 season, even after a torn ACL led to mixed reactions during the off-season trainings. During last week’s OTAs, the 22-year-old player hurt his knee, but underwent a stem-cell injection to keep him fit for the start of the season, and his NFL debut this fall.

On the opening day of their training camp last year, Perriman had to be placed on injured reserve after his right knee suffered a PCL strain. With his speed and athleticism, the wide receiver has been considered a potential game breaker, and his inclusion on the Ravens will improve their play. As a reinforcement, the Ravens have also included the 37-year-old Steve Smith to keep Kamar Aiken and Mike Wallace competitive for the 2016 season.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Perriman was examined by Dr. James Anderson on Monday, along with another scheduled scope on Tuesday to mend the tear and define the degree of the impairment. The doctors’ scope declared that Perriman does not require any surgical repair and the 2016 NFL Championship fans eagerly await him. Even though there is no guarantee that Perriman could become the top receiver, the most recent news encourages the Ravens. The star completed his football career in college with 16 touchdowns originating from 115 catches for 2,243 yards.

It was at the UCF Pro Day that the draft stock of Perriman increased rapidly after running two 40-yard dashes in sub-4.3-seconds. However, a hamstring injury ruled him out of the NFL combine, but he managed to secure an undisputed first-round pick in the NFL Draft. Perriman expressed the difficulty he went through due to the injury that made him miss his rookie season. Last month, he said that regardless of the downs this off-season, he has emerged stronger again and learned how to pray more to keep his faith alive.

In the 2015 season, Aiken’s 5 touchdowns from 75 receptions for 944 yards ensured he led the Ravens. Smith had 3 touchdowns from 46 catches for 670 yards before sustaining an Achilles injury to end his season.
