The Jets designated Perine (ankle) to return from injured reserve Wednesday.

Perine, who suffered a high-ankle sprain Week 11, was placed on injured reserve Nov. 24. Now that he's ready to resume practicing, the rookie could find himself back on the team's active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams. If that's the case, Perine would likely fill a complementary role in a New York backfield that also includes Frank Gore, Ty Johnson and Josh Adams.
