Coach Jon Gruden said Perine has been Washington's most impressive running back this spring, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Regardless, the third-year pro will be battling for a back-end roster spot in a position group that includes Derrius Guice (knee), Chris Thompson, Adrian Peterson and fourth-round pick Bryce Love (knee). There's a good chance the team stashes Love on injured reserve or the PUP list, potentially creating an opening for Perine to land the No. 4 spot if it exists.
Perine is stuck in a crowded backfield with Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice (knee) and Chris Thompson, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports.
Guice's tricky rehab from a torn ACL and subsequent infection is the complicating factor, potentially opening a door for Perine, Byron Marshall or Russell Hansbrough to earn a role. Even so, it's hard to see how Perine fits the plan in Washington, considering he logged just 30 snaps on offense and 39 on special teams in 2018. The 2017 fourth-round pick will have a tough time earning a spot on the 53-man roster unless he establishes value as a blocker and coverage man on special teams. The Redskins likely would be happy to trade Perine, but there's no serious market for a one-dimensional running back with a career mark of 3.5 yards per carry.
Perine finished 2018 with eight carries for 32 yards and three catches for five yards in five games.
Disappointing as a rookie, the 2017 fourth-round pick spent most of his sophomore campaign serving as a healthy scratch. Perine likely will need to compete for a roster spot in 2019, though he could find an opening for a meaningful role if Adrian Peterson leaves Washington and Derrius Guice (knee) continues to struggle through the rehab process from a torn ACL.
Perine (coach's decision) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Titans.
Saturday's designation means Perine will miss his sixth straight game and fourth as a healthy inactive. Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson and Byron Marshall will continue to field the touches out of the backfield.
Perine (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.
Perine will sit out for his fifth straight game and his third as a healthy inactive. With Perine watching from the sidelines, Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson and Byron Marshall will work in the backfield.
Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Perine's inclusion on the Redskins' inactive list is less surprising than that of Kapri Bibbs, who also is a healthy scratch. With the duo unavailable Sunday, Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson and Byron Marshall will compose the options out of the backfield.
Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Eagles.
Perine has only run the ball five times this season for a total of 25 yards, and with Chris Thompson (ribs) back in action Monday, the Redskins are not in need of a fourth running back. They will instead roll with Thompson, Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs in a key divisional matchup. As long as all three aforementioned backs stay healthy, it will be difficult for Perine to see playing time in Washington's backfield this season.
Perine (calf) isn't listed on the Redskins' initial Week 13 injury report.
With a longer turnaround time between games after the Redskins played on Thanksgiving Day in Week 12, Perine looks like he'll enter the team's Monday night matchup with the Eagles at full strength. However, it's uncertain if his improved health will be enough for him to escape the inactive list. Washington is expected to get pass-catching specialist Chris Thompson (ribs) back from a four-game absence this week, giving the team an option to pair with top ballcarrier Adrian Peterson (shoulder). Meanwhile, Kapri Bibbs remains on hand as a depth option in the backfield and has a consistent role on special teams, lessening the team's need to keep Perine active as a fourth running back.
Perine (calf) is listed as inactive Thursday in Dallas.
With Perine and Chris Thompson (ribs) out of commission, Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall will be afforded the few running back touches that don't go to Adrian Peterson in Week 12.
Perine (calf) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game in Dallas.
Perine opened the week as a non-participant in practice before upgrading to limited showings Tuesday and Wednesday. With Adrian Peterson taking most of the carries while Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall handle passing-down work, Perine may stay on the inactive list even if he's healthy enough to play.
Perine (calf) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Perine missed Sunday's game against the Texans and was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report. His return to practice on a limited basis is encouraging, but because the Redskins play on Thursday, he might not be fully ready in time for Week 12.
Perine (calf) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.
Although Perine got rid of the knee injury that appeared on the practice report last Thursday and Friday, he wouldn't have participated Monday if the Redskins held a session. He has two more practices to prove his health, with the aim to provide support to starter Adrian Peterson (shoulder) on Thursday in Dallas. If Perine and Chris Thompson (rib) are sidelined again, Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall would be afforded those opportunities.
Coach Jay Gruden announced Perine (calf/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Perine will be joined in street clothes by Chris Thompson (ribs), leaving Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs as the only healthy backs on the roster. To compensate for the two absences, Gruden hinted that the team will likely activate Byron Marshall (knee) from injured reserve to afford Washington a third backfield option. Once he overcomes the calf and knee issues, it's unlikely that Perine will have much of a role -- if one at all -- within the Washington offense. He had been a healthy inactive for five of the team's first nine games.
Perine (knee/calf) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Perine is a surprise addition to Thursday's injury report, after the second-year running back was able to practice without issue to begin the week. The details of Perine's knee and calf injuries remain undisclosed, and his Week 11 availability appears uncertain. Perine has yet to see more than two carries in a single game this season, so his presence one way or another is unlikely to affect Washington's offense during Sunday's contest against the Texans.
Perine is active for Sunday's contest at Tampa Bay.
Perine has been called upon this season during Chris Thompson's (ribs) three absences, and he'll do the same Week 10. In those outings, Perine accrued 30 yards from scrimmage on eight touches. With Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs in front of him, Perine can't be expected to receive more than a handful of looks, barring an injury to one of the pair.
Perine took two carries for 20 yards and caught two of three targets for eight yards in Sunday's 38-14 loss to Atlanta.
Perine was active for just the third time all season, handling a 22 percent snap share behind Adrian Peterson (46 percent) and Kapri Bibbs (30 percent). There isn't much cause for optimism moving forward, as all of Perine's targets and carries came on the meaningless final drive in a blowout. He'll have a tough time staying involved Week 10 at Tampa Bay.
Perine is active for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Available on gameday for just the third time in eight games this season, Perine has a chance for his most significant workload of the season due to injuries elsewhere in the backfield. Chris Thompson (ribs) is sidelined, while the only other active running back Kapri Bibbs is suiting up just one week removed from separating his shoulder. On the season, though, Perine has managed just two yards from scrimmage on four touches, so it's difficult to count on much (if any) production behind Adrian Peterson.
Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest at the Giants.
Perine was kept on the gameday roster during Chris Thompson's (ribs/knee) two-game absence but only played 10 offensive snaps and 18 on special teams. Perine's production wasn't anything special, either (four touches for two yards from scrimmage). Don't expect another appearance unless injury befalls another member of the backfield.
Perine carried the ball twice for two yards during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Dallas.
Two yards on four touches: That's been Perine's contribution to the Washington offense in two active games this season. Perine is only seeing the field because Chris Thompson (ribs/knee) is on the shelf. Given Perine's poor production in Thompson's absence, expect Perine to return to the inactive list as soon as Thompson is back in action. If that absence extends to Sunday, Perine is likely to gather Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs' scraps against a middle-of-the-pack Giants run defense.
Perine is active for Sunday's contest versus the Panthers, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
For the first time this season, Perine cracked the 46-man gameday roster. The opportunity arose with Chris Thompson (ribs/knee) inactive, but Adrian Peterson is still on hand to handle the bulk of the carries while Kapri Bibbs is the best bet to act as the Thompson fill-in. If he sees the field Sunday, Perine's track record includes 3.4 YPC and 22 catches (on 24 targets) in 16 games during the 2017 campaign.
