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.
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.
