    Receiver Breshad Perriman finds himself on Lions’ roster bubble


    Allen Park — When projecting the Detroit Lions’ depth chart after the draft and free agency, it was easy to slot Breshad Perriman into one of the starting receiver spots. 

    A former first-rounder who previously played for Lions first-year receiver coach Antwaan Randle-El in Tampa Bay, Perriman fit the mold of players the Lions were looking for this offseason, possessing size and an obvious skill set, but also having something to prove, which kept their price tag reasonable. 

    But the durability concerns that have dogged Perriman his entire career have put him in a position where he’s gone from projected starter to roster bubble. 

    “I think it’s hard to say right now,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said. “There just hasn’t been enough out there. He had the hip injury and then he comes back, he was solid the other night for the plays that he had, but yet he had an (offensive pass interference), which he knows better than. He didn’t need to do that. His speed and the route is enough to where he would win on that.
