Perkins returned to action Sunday, but only saw work on special teams.
He's the fourth string back for now behind Orleans Darkwa, Wayne Gallman and Shane Vereen.
Perkins (ribs) practiced in full Wednesday.
Perkins got the most out of the Giants' Week 8 bye, as he seemingly practiced without limitations in the open part of drills Wednesday, according to Dan Duggan of NJ.com. Indeed, Perkins managed to log every practice rep for the first time since bruising his ribs Oct. 1. Upon his return to action Sunday against the Rams, Perkins will be hard pressed to earn more than a few reps due to his own lacking performance (1.9 yards per carry through four games) and the breakout of Orleans Darkwa in his absence.
Perkins (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Perkins was able to practice on a limited basis this week, but he hasn't yet recovered to the point where he'll be ready for game action. With Perkins able to get some work in this week and the Giants on bye in Week 8 though, it seems likely he could return for the team's subsequent contest Nov. 5 against the Rams. Orleans Darkwa is the favorite to serve as the Giants' top running back this week, but Week 6 was the first time all season he led the New York backfield in snaps. As such, Shane Vereen and Wayne Gallman could both still be involved in some fashion Sunday.
Perkins (ribs) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.
According to Dan Duggan of NJ.com, Perkins was just working out on the side during the portion of Thursday's practice made available to the media, but he apparently stepped up his involvement to some degree during the closed session. It's unclear how good of a chance Perkins truly has of playing Sunday against the Seahawks, but after struggling mightily in his four games prior to bruising his ribs, he'll likely be behind Orleans Darkwa and perhaps even Shane Vereen and Wayne Gallman in the pecking order at running back if he's able to suit up.
Perkins (ribs) was limited at Wednesday's practice.
In his first practice since bruising his ribs in Week 4, Perkins managed to take part in individual drills, at the very least. The Giants will likely take a cautious approach with Perkins due to the emergence of Orleans Darkwa, who has racked up 29 carries for 186 yards and one touchdown during the former's two-game absence. Once healthy, it's unclear if Perkins will regain any type of significant role.
