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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Healthy scratch again

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

Oct 1, 2021 12:44 PM EST


Inactive in Week 3

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

Analysis: With Perine not in the mix Sunday, Ty Johnson and Michael Carter are in line to head the Jets' Week 3 backfield, with Josh Adams in reserve.

Sep 26, 2021 11:52 AM EST


Healthy scratch for Week 2

Perine (coach's decision) is listed as inactive ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Patriots.

Analysis: Perine was inactive due to a foot injury during Week 1, but he is a healthy scratch ahead of Week 2. The Jets will rely on Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Michael Carter against the Patriots on Sunday.

Sep 19, 2021 9:30 AM EST


Not on Week 2 injury report

Perine (foot) doesn't appear on the Jets' Week 2 injury report.

Analysis: Perine was inactive in Week 1, but he's evidently past the foot issue that he had been managing. However, it remains to be seen if he suit up Sunday against the Patriots, with Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Michael Carter also in the Jets' backfield mix.

Sep 15, 2021 2:29 PM EST


Won't play in opener

Perine (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Even though Perine finished the week as a full practice participant, the Jets opted to make him one of the two running backs inactive for the contest, with Josh Adams (coach's decision) joining him in street clothes. Perine is listed behind all of Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Michael Carter on the Jets' unofficial depth chart, so even if he hadn't been nursing the foot injury, it's unclear if Perine would have suited up Sunday. With that in mind, Perine's status will be worth tracking heading into the Week 2 matchup with the Patriots, assuming he approaches that game without an injury designation.

Sep 12, 2021 9:02 AM EST


Questionable after full practice

Perine (foot) practiced fully Friday but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Analysis: Perine's full participation in Friday's practice suggests he's trending in the right direction, but the second-year running back was unable to shed his injury label. While Perine opens the season fourth on the Jets' backfield depth chart, New York's pecking order at running back remains fluid due to the lack of an established No. 1 option.

Sep 10, 2021 1:19 PM EST


Limited at practice

Perine (foot) was limited at practice Wednesday and remains questionable for Week 1, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: Perine's status for Week 1 remains in question despite coach Robert Saleh previously stating he was optimistic that he would be available against the Panthers. The Jets promoted Josh Adams from the practice squad Tuesday, and Perine continues to be limited at practice, which suggests that New York is preparing to be without their 23-year-old running back. Tevin Coleman is slated as the starting running back on the Jets' depth chart with Ty Johnson and Michael Carter as the primary backups.

Sep 8, 2021 9:58 AM EST


Status in question

Perine (foot) may not be ready for Sunday's game against the Panthers given the Jets signed Josh Adams off the practice squad, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Coach Robert Saleh previously said Perine was expected to be available for Week 1, but the addition of Adams from the practice squad indicates the team wanted more depth at running back. Perine's status should receive additional clarity once the Jets release their first injury report Wednesday, but for now his availability appears to be up in the air.
