Perillo's zero-catch effort did not help his chances of securing the third spot on the depth chart at the tight end position, but he already held the lead over Kennard Backman after catching five passes for 52 yards in the preseason opener and impressing in limited action during the 2015 regular season.
Justin Perillo (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday at Arizona, Duke Bobber of the Green Bay Packers ' official site reports.
After suffering a hamstring injury at practice Thursday, Perillo was listed as a non-participant on Friday's injury report. With Andrew Quarless back in the picture, though, Perillo will be afforded a week of rest.
Justin Perillo caught two passes off of two targets for nine yards in Thursday's loss to Chicago.
Perillo came out of nowhere for a five-catch game in Week 10 and scored a touchdown. In his two games since, he has been targeted just twice as compared to 12 targets for starting tight end Richard Rodgers. At this point, it seems as though Perillo's solid performance in Week 10 was more flash in the pan than anything fantasy owners can hang their hats on.
Perillo came up in a big way the previous week, but he was held out of the box score in Week 11. Fellow tight end Andrew Quarless (knee) is ready, or nearly ready, to return, so Perillo's chances of matching his Week 10 production again this season are slim.
Justin Perillo caught five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Perillo saw the first extended action of his career and responded in a big way, getting open several times and finding paydirt for the first time. His impressive showing may have earned him more snaps, but he remains the Green Bay Packers ' No. 2 tight end behind Richard Rodgers, and figures to slide down another spot when Andrew Quarless (knee) returns to action in Week 12.
