OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- First-round pick Breshad Perriman gave the Baltimore Ravens a brief scare in the team's first training camp practice Thursday.

Perriman fell on his knee after making a sideline catch and walked off the field with a trainer with about 15 minutes left in practice. He seemed to favor his right leg, but he went into the team facility on his own power.

"It's not serious. It's all sound," coach John Harbaugh said. "He'll be back as soon as his knee feels a little bit better. It could be as early as tomorrow or a couple of days at the most."

Perriman, the No. 26 overall pick in the draft, ran primarily with the first team. Like many rookies, he had his shaky moments, dropping a pass and then jumping offside. But he followed that by making a tremendous leaping catch.

"That's part of becoming a good player. Being able to put those mistakes behind you and move on," quarterback Joe Flacco said. "Everybody's going to make them, especially young guys. We have to make sure that we work through it, and they get tough because of it and don't get down because of it. I think he's the type of guy who is going to react well to it and he's going to want to go out there and make another play. I think that we've seen that so far. We just have to make sure that continues."
