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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sep 6, 2021 2:23 PM EST


Likely available for Week 1

Coach Robert Saleh said Sunday that "he's very very optimistic" that Perine (foot) will be available for Week 1 of the regular season, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

Analysis: Perine appears to be a lock for the 53-man roster after Saleh confirmed that his injury doesn't appear to be too serious. The 2020 fourth-rounder has 18 carries for 46 yards and a score over the Jets' first two preseason games and will likely compete with rookie Michael Carter and Ty Johnson for a backup role behind veteran Tevin Coleman.

Suffers foot injury

Perine suffered a foot injury during Wednesday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: Perine has been relatively productive to begin the preseason, as he totaled 18 carries for 46 yards and a touchdown across the Jets' first two exhibition games. The 2020 fourth-rounder appears to be in a good position to land a spot on the 53-man roster, but the severity of his injury isn't yet known.

Aug 25, 2021 11:00 AM EST


Still fighting for snaps

Perine gained 16 yards on six carries in Saturday's preseason win over the Packers.

Analysis: The second-year back saw his first touch of the game in the third quarter, as the Jets ran with Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson through the first half before turning to Perine and Michael Carter in the backfield after the intermission. If the club only ends up keeping three backs on the gameday roster, that doesn't bode well for Perine, as Carter -- a 2021 fourth-round pick -- should be a lock.

Finds end zone in preseason opener

Perine rushed 12 times for 30 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 12-7 preseason win over the Giants. He wasn't targeted in the passing game.

Analysis: Perine only played after halftime while Ty Johnson and Michael Carter split the first-half workload. That usage suggests Perine's currently behind both of those guys, and likely Tevin Coleman -- who sat out the preseason opener -- on the running back depth chart. The 2020 fourth-round pick didn't find much running room but managed to punch in a four-yard score in the third quarter for the Jets' only touchdown of the night. Perine and the Jets will face the Packers in Week 2 of preseason.

Aug 15, 2021 3:38 PM EST


Second on initial depth chart

Perine is listed second on the Jets' initial unofficial depth chart behind Tevin Coleman.

Analysis: It's good to see Perine ahead of Ty Johnson, but he's realistically behind both Coleman and rookie Michael Carter. While Carter is surprisingly listed fourth here, his frequent reps with the first-team offense and glowing reviews from the coaching staff suggest it's a matter of when -- not if -- he moves up the depth chart. There were some worries that Perine would be a cut candidate after a forgettable rookie season, but he should have no trouble securing a roster spot given his placement on the depth chart here.

Needs a strong offseason

Perine (illness) could need to impress at OTAs in order to keep a grip on his backfield role, Brian Costello reports.

Analysis: Perine, who dealt with hamstring issues in 2020 and ended his rookie year on the COVID-19 list, has been joined by fourth-round pick Michael Carter and veteran Tevin Coleman in the Jets' backfield. All three of those players could have a role on offense -- and Perine himself was selected in the fourth round of last year's draft -- but the extent of his involvement could be largely determined by his performance in OTAs and training camp. If Perine struggles to impress new offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, it's conceivable that even Ty Johnson or Josh Adams could pass him on the depth chart.

May 19, 2021 12:33 PM EST


Could be odd man out

Perine (illness) could be the odd man out in the Jets' running back rotation this season, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Perine lacks the speed and quick cutting ability coveted by new offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, and the 2020 fourth-rounder's coming off a poor rookie season in which he produced just 3.6 yards per carry. New York once again used a fourth-round pick on a running back in 2021 to grab Michael Carter out of UNC, and the team also signed Tevin Coleman, who played for LaFleur in San Francisco. In order to maintain a roster spot in the crowded Jets backfield, Perine will have to beat out one or two of the aforementioned new additions or fellow holdovers Ty Johnson and Josh Adams, who both flashed more upside than Perine in limited action last season.

Fewer than 300 yards as rookie

Perine -- who spent Week 17 on the reserve/COVID-19 list -- finishes his rookie season with 232 yards and two touchdowns on 64 carries and 63 yards on 11 catches.

Analysis: The fourth-round pick out of Florida battled ankle injuries, which limited him to 10 appearances. Perine averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, but some of that ineffectiveness can be excused by New York's poor offensive line play and overall ineptitude on offense under since-fired head coach Adam Gase. With the team unlikely to bring back Gase favorite Frank Gore, Perine could find himself atop the running back depth chart next season, though the Jets will almost certainly bring in competition at the position via free agency or the draft.

Jan 3, 2021 6:25 PM EST


Headed to COVID-19 list

Perine (illness) will be placed on reserve/COVID-19 list, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Per the report, Perine's placement on the the list is the result of a positive test. With Frank Gore (lung contusion) out this week, Ty Johnson and Josh Adams are currently the team's available backfield options, along with practice squad member Pete Guerriero.

Dec 30, 2020 8:34 AM EST


Ten touches in return

Perine (ankle) rushed nine times for 30 yards and caught one of two targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over Cleveland.

Analysis: Perine came off IR for his first action since Week 11, and he finished with nine carries while Frank Gore got 13 and Ty Johnson received two. The distribution of carries was tilted further in Gore's favor until the veteran running back suffered a second-half chest injury, which paved the way for Perine to take over as the lead back with New York trying to run clock late. If Gore's unable to suit up in next week's season finale, Perine would likely get the majority of the carries against the Patriots with Johnson subbing in on passing downs.

Dec 27, 2020 2:43 PM EST


Activated off IR

Perine (ankle) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: Perine hasn't played since suffering an injury during Week 11, but he'll make a return to New York's active roster with the team coming off the heels of its first win of the season. The fourth-round pick saw at least six carries in each of the last five games although it remains to be seen if that workload will return with Ty Johnson and Josh Adams contributing more in recent weeks.

Dec 26, 2020 1:39 PM EST


Back practicing, but status TBD

Perine (ankle) has resumed practicing with the team, but coach Adam Gase was non-committal Thursday regarding when he expects the running back to return to game action, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Perine became designated to return from injured reserve Dec. 16, however, he was deemed inactive for last Sunday's 23-20 upset of the Rams. The Florida product could have a chance to play Week 16 against the Browns, but at this point, his status is very much up in the air. Perine has registered a couple of blips on the fantasy radar this season, scoring touchdowns Weeks 7 and 11, but the 22-year-old has only exceeded 40 scrimmage yards in a game once all season.

Dec 24, 2020 7:05 PM EST


Won't return Week 15

Perine (ankle) will not be activated from injured reserve Saturday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Perine will miss a fourth straight game due to his high-ankle sprain, setting the stage for Frank Gore, Ty Johnson and Josh Adams to handle New York's backfield reps against the Rams. If Perine can return Week 16, coach Adam Gase will likely deploy him in a committee.
