Perryman recorded nine tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Jaguars.

An injury to Hayes Pullard (neck) forced Perryman to start at middle linebacker in his first game back since preseason ankle surgery, and the third-year linebacker promptly led the team in tackles. What's more, the Chargers' defense managed to keep star Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette in check, thanks in large part to Perryman's efforts patrolling the middle of the field. It'll be interesting to see if Perryman will continue to start, given Sunday's performance. While Pullard had played well up until this point, Perryman was projected as the starting middle linebacker in the preseason before the injury occurred, and his effort Sunday makes him worthy of consideration for the job.
