Joins practice squad

Perine signed with the Dolphins' practice squad Tuesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Perine spent training camp with the Jets, but he was unable to make the team's 53-man roster. After a short stint in the Eagles' organization he'll now get a chance with the Dolphins.

Released from practice squad

The Eagles released Perine from their practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Perine landed a spot on the Eagles' practice squad after being waived by the Jets, who drafted the running back in the fourth round of the 2020 Draft. As a rookie, Perine totaled 75 touches for 295 yards and two scores, but he saw limited action in 2021 and now finds himself as a free agent heading into 2022.

Joins Philly's practice squad

The Eagles signed Perine to their practice squad Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Perine totaled 75 touches for 295 yards and two scores as a rookie in 2020 but was waived by the Jets ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. The Eagles have solid running backs with quality NFL experience on the active roster, but the group is only three deep. So, Perine will likely operate as an emergency depth option in case any of the aforementioned backs go down with an injury.

Let go by the Jets

The Jets waived Perine on Monday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: The addition of Breece Hall this offseason pushed all the Jets' returning running backs one spot down the depth chart, so Perine was always a long shot to make the team's initial 53-man roster. The 2020 fourth-round pick totaled 75 touches for 295 yards and two scores as a rookie but appeared in just four games last year.

Falls flat in preseason finale

Perine rushed once for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 31-27 preseason win over the Giants.

Analysis: Perine didn't get many opportunities, but he didn't exactly make the most of his final chance to show the coaching staff he belongs on the 53-man roster. The Jets' 2020 fourth-round pick is a long shot to make the team in 2022.

Finds end zone against Falcons

Perine rushed twice for 10 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 24-16 preseason win over Atlanta.

Analysis: Perine didn't see the field much in this one but made the most of his limited opportunities, bouncing outside for a seven-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. He outplayed undrafted rookie Zonovan Knight (five carries for nine yards), but Perine's likely still looking up at Breece Hall, Michael Carter, Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson on the running back depth chart heading into Sunday's preseason finale against the Giants.

Solid showing in preseason opener

Perine rushed 10 times for 51 yards in Friday's 24-21 preseason win over Philadelphia.

Analysis: Perine's on the roster bubble, but the 2020 fourth-round pick out of Florida put forth a solid effort in the preseason opener to help his case, topping his totals in rushing attempts (eight) and yards (31) from the entire 2021 regular season. Breece Hall and Michael Carter are locks to make the Jets' roster, leaving Perine, Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson (hamstring) and undrafted rookie Zonovan Knight to battle it out for another 1-2 roster spots.

Aug 14, 2022 10:57 AM EST

Just eight touches all season

Perine rushed eight times for 31 yards and wasn't targeted in 2021.

Analysis: Perine spent most of the season as a healthy scratch. Barring massive offseason improvement, the 2020 fourth-round pick could find himself on the chopping block in camp with the Jets next season.

Jan 14, 2022 12:07 PM EST

Inactive Sunday

Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Perine will be a healthy scratch for a third consecutive week. With Perine unavailable and Tevin Coleman sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols, the Jets' backfield will consist of Michael Carter, Ty Johnson and Austin Walther.

Jan 2, 2022 9:07 AM EST

Inactive Sunday

Perine is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: As is Ty Johnson, which sets the stage for Michael Carter, Tevin Coleman and Austin Walter to handle the Jets' Week 15 backfield duties.

Dec 19, 2021 8:53 AM EST

Pressed into action by injuries

Perine rushed seven times for 28 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 30-9 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Austin Walter (illness) joined Michael Carter (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (concussion) on the sidelines before he could play a snap, leaving Perine to work as the power complement to Ty Johnson's finesse in the backfield. Perine was more effective than Johnson (six carries for 17 yards) on the ground, but he wasn't involved as a pass-catcher, and the Jets never got close enough to give Perine any carries by the goal line. Even if none of the injured running backs return, New York's struggles offensively and Perine's limited skill set will make him tough to trust in Week 15 against the Dolphins.

Dec 12, 2021 3:28 PM EST

Inactive for Week 13

Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: The 2020 fourth-rounder remains the odd man out in the Jets' backfield and it's going to take an injury or two for Perine to come close to the fantasy radar this season.

Dec 5, 2021 9:15 AM EST

Won't play Sunday

Perine (coach's decision) will not play Sunday against the Texans, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Perine will watch from the sidelines again and hasn't been active since Week 9. The second-year pro has work to do to leap the trio of Austin Walter, Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman on the Jet's depth chart.

Nov 28, 2021 9:17 AM EST

Healthy scratch again

Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Perine will be in street clothes for the second straight week following Tevin Coleman's recent return from a hamstring injury. The Jets are likely to continue keeping only three running backs active on game days, and Perine will be fourth in the pecking order so long as Michael Carter, Ty Johnson and Coleman are all healthy.

Nov 21, 2021 9:07 AM EST

Healthy scratch Week 10

Perine (coach's decision) is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: After suiting up each of the past three weeks while playing just 26 snaps in total -- and only seven on offense -- Perine is back in street clothes for Week 10 with Tevin Coleman (hamstring) making his return. Coleman will replace Perine as the Jets' No. 3 back behind Michael Carter and Ty Johnson.

Nov 14, 2021 8:56 AM EST

One carry in Week 8 win

Perine rushed once for three yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Bengals.

Analysis: Perine worked as New York's third-string running back with Tevin Coleman sidelined by a hamstring injury and could do so again if Coleman's not ready to go Thursday against the Colts. The Jets are content with their backfield timeshare between Michael Carter and Ty Johnson, leaving little to no playing time for Perine.

Nov 1, 2021 11:38 AM EST

Inactive Sunday

Perine is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Analysis: With Perine a healthy scratch Sunday, the Jets' Week 5 backfield will continue to be comprised of Michael Carter, Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman.

Oct 10, 2021 5:20 AM EST

Clear of illness

Perine (illness) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Perine was inactive for Sunday's win over the Titans due to an illness, but he's absent from the injury report to open this week. The 23-year-old was a healthy scratch for the first three games of the season, so he's likely to be inactive again Week 5 despite being healthy.

Oct 6, 2021 2:37 PM EST

Can't suit up

Perine (illness) is inactive for Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Titans, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Perine was sidelined from practice early in the week, but he managed a full practice Friday. Despite that step forward, he will remain inactive and has yet to play this season due to a combination of injuries and being a healthy scratch.

Oct 3, 2021 9:07 AM EST

Questionable despite full practice

Perine (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Perine's non-COVID illness kept him sidelined at practice Thursday, but he returned to full participation Friday. While he's likely healthy enough to play, the second-year running back is yet to be active on game day because he occupies the fourth spot on the Jets' backfield depth chart. Perhaps the coaching staff will opt to mix things up against Tennessee and give Perine a shot; things can't get any worse offensively with the Jets coming off a shutout loss and averaging under a touchdown per game.
