Breshad Perriman Injury: Updates on UCF WR's Status, Likely Return Date
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

UCF wide receiver Breshad Perriman suffered a scary injury on Saturday night against the Houston Cougars.

Joseph Duarte of The Houston Chronicle reported the sophomore wideout was hit over the middle by Zach McMillian, with McMillian getting flagged for targeting.

Perriman was carted off the field on a stretcher, via the Orlando Sentinel's Paul Tenorio.

Matt Murschel of the Orlando Sentinel reported he was able to at least give the fans a thumbs up as he was leaving the field, which is always an encouraging sign.

The Orlando Sentinel added this:

Breshad Perriman is the son of former NFL wideout Brett Perriman. The elder Perriman spent 10 years in the NFL, with the majority of those seasons as a member of the Detroit Lions. He caught 525 passes for 6,589 yards and 30 touchdowns.

The younger Perriman is following in his father's footsteps. He came into the game as the Knights' leading receiver and caught five passes for 60 yards before leaving Saturday's game against the Cougars.

Check back for the latest updates on Perriman's health when they become available.
