D'Ernest Johnson Gets In Limited Practice

Thursday, December 14, 9:46 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running back D'Ernest Johnson (knee) remained a limited participant during Thursday's practice session. Johnson has been limited in both practice sessions to begin the week. This is noteworthy because starting back Travis Etienne Jr. (ribs) has also been limited this week. The absence of Etienne would likely mean that Johnson would start this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. However, they'd probably end up splitting up the snaps with Tank Bigsby. If Johnson sits, Bigsby would likely be tasked with being the primary backup, but there won't be a ton of value with the gig.

Lamical Perine News

La'Mical Perine Gains 109 Yards In Mop-Up Duty

Monday, January 8, 2:15 AM

Kansas City Chiefs running back La'Mical Perine shouldered a bell-cow role in Week 18's regular-season finale as the team topped the Los Angeles Chargers 13-12, carrying the ball 21 times for 76 yards with three catches for 33 yards. Isiah Pacheco (quadriceps/shoulder) was inactive for Sunday's date, as the Chiefs rested their top playmakers ahead of the postseason, and Perine handled the interim lead-back role fairly well. Clyde Edwards-Helaire made a brief cameo early in the game for three touches before joining the key producers on the sidelines. The 25-year-old former New York Jet is settled in as K.C.'s No. 3 tailback with Jerick McKinnon (groin) on injured reserve but would likely only be called upon during the playoffs in the event of an injury to Pacheco or Edwards-Helaire, so he won't be fantasy relevant on Saturday versus the Miami Dolphins for Wild Card play.
