Perry signed a contract with the Titans on Thursday.
Perry played in 11 games with the Bills last season but was almost exclusively a special teams player and will likely fill a similar role with the Titans in 2020, should he make the team.
Perry, who logged just three rushes for three yards in 2019, will be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Frank Gore appears set to move on or retire, which would seemingly bump Perry up the depth chart, but the Bills have plenty of draft capital and cap room, and they're almost certainly going to stack the deck behind long-term starter Devin Singletary with a lot more than Perry can offer. Practice squad member Christian Wade also appears to offer far more upside. Perry remains a good special teams player, logging 192 snaps on those units over 11 games, so perhaps the Bills will keep him around in a No. 4 or No. 5 role.
Perry was re-signed Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The running back made a good impression throughout training camp but suffered a quadriceps injury, ended up on IR, and was ultimately given an injury settlement. With Zay Jones being traded to the Raiders, there was an extra spot on the roster, and the Bills will use it to beef up their running back room, to which rookie Devin Singletary is still working his way back from a hamstring injury. Perry was eligible to return because six weeks have passed since the aforementioned settlement.

Perry likely wasn't going to make the team anyway, nor was this considered a season-long injury, so he can now get to work on his next NFL destination. The Bills could re-sign Perry after a certain period of time has passed if he finds no other suitors and if one of their current running backs doesn't work out.
Updating a previous report, Perry has been placed on injured reserve due to a quad injury, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
The initial report indicated Perry had been waived/injured, though that plan still seems to be in the cards in a couple of weeks. Perry's injury is not considered serious.

Perry's best bet to make the team was as a special teams standout, but between him being on the roster bubble and having an injury to boot, he loses out and will have to look for work elsewhere once he's healthy. O.J. Simpson remains the most recent Bills player to wear No. 32 in a regular season game.

The man sporting O.J. Simpson's former No. 32 is on the roster bubble, so the injury comes at an unfortunate time. If Perry can get back at it soon, he'll have his chance to make a final roster push, where his special teams acumen gives him the best chance.
Perry rushed once for three yards and lost a fumble in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.
Perry got his chance on the first play of the Bills' second drive of the game and promptly put the ball on the ground. While that won't help his hopes of making the roster, he at least seems to have recovered from the ankle injury that kept him out earlier in the week.
Perry missed practice Sunday due to an ankle injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Perry is coming off a nice preseason outing where he scored a touchdown on four carries for 10 yards and also caught a 15-yard pass. For a guy who's battling for the final running back spot, the injury comes at an inopportune time.

Perry led the Dolphins in special-teams tackles last season and is likely being brought to Buffalo to serve in a similar capacity. Unless the Bills suffer a rash of injuries at running back, he's highly unlikely to make much of an offensive contribution in 2019.
Perry didn't record an offensive snap in 2018.
Perry played 303 snaps on special teams, racking up 164 kick return yards in limited usage. Even after Frank Gore (foot) was placed on injured reserve, Perry remained firmly behind Kenyan Drake, Kalen Ballage and Brandon Bolden on the offensive depth chart. Set to become a restricted free agent this offseason, it remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old will suit up with the Dolphins in 2019.
Perry ran for 35 yards and a touchdown on four carries to go along with two receptions for 10 yards during the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Buccaneers on Thursday.
Perry was productive despite a small workload Thursday, amassing 45 total yards and a score on just six touches out of the backfield. The 26-year-old is looking to prove himself as more than just a special teamer in Miami. His performance thus far has certainly improved his chances of making the 53-man roster as the No. 4 running back behind Kenyan Drake, Frank Gore and Kalen Ballage.
Perry gained 30 yards on eight carries and three yards on his one reception across 16 games in 2017. He also gained 202 yards on 10 kickoff returns.
Seeing his first NFL action since the 2014 season when he was with the Bears, Perry was exclusively relegated to special teams for the Dolphins in 2017 until fellow tailback Damien Williams dislocated his shoulder in Week 14. He still wasn't much of a factor in the offense thereafter, though, as No. 1 runner Kenyan Drake proved capable of handling an every-down role. However, with Williams set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, Perry figures to enter the offseason second on the depth chart behind Drake.
Perry (concussion) is active for Sunday's Week 13 tilt against the Broncos.
Perry will thus be available to give starting tailback Kenyan Drake the occasional breather against the stingy Broncos run defense. With Damien Williams (shoulder) sidelined, Perry should see snaps from scrimmage for the first time this season, although Drake is still expected to carry the bulk of the rushing workload.
Though Perry (concussion) was a full practice participant both Thursday and Friday, he's listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Perry is listed as such because he remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, according to Beasley. If Perry ends up being unavailable, De'Veon Smith could end up backing up Kenyan Drake on Sunday, given that the lone other running back on the roster, Damien Williams (shoulder), has already been ruled out for the contest.
Perry (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Perry's move from a limited practice Wednesday to a full session Thursday implies that he's made some progress since entering the concussion protocol after getting drilled in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He'll still need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before being formally removed from the concussion protocol, but there appears to be optimism that Perry will be available for the Week 13 clash with the Broncos. With Damien Williams (shoulder) expected to miss the contest, Perry, who has played exclusively on special teams in 2017, could see his first offensive snaps of the season whenever presumptive workhorse Kenyan Drake requires a breather.
Perry (concussion) won't take part in Wednesday's practice, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Given that Perry has seen all 183 of his snaps on special teams this season, his absence from practice wouldn't normally be noteworthy, but it looms larger this week with fellow running back Damien Williams dealing with a dislocated shoulder that is expected to keep him out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. It appears that Perry, who is third on the depth chart behind Williams and Kenyan Drake, is also trending toward an absence after being diagnosed with the concussion upon taking the brunt of a big hit on special teams in the Week 12 loss to the Patriots, according to James Walker of ESPN.com. That tentatively leaves Drake as the lone healthy running back on the roster, though backfield reinforcement is coming in the form of De'Veon Smith, who will be signed off the Dolphins' practice squad Wednesday, per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Perry has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game after being diagnosed with a concussion, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Perry will now enter the NFL's concussion protocol and should be considered questionable for next week's game against Denver. With Damien Williams (shoulder) also out of the contest, Kenyan Drake is the last man standing in the Dolphins' backfield.
Perry exited Sunday's game against New England to be evaluated for a concussion.
Perry's return is questionable now that he's being evaluated for a concussion. If he's unable to return, look for Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams to handle the running back duties for the remainder of the game.
Perry (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Buccaneers.
The reserve running back was able to return to practice as a full participant Friday after missing the first two sessions of the week, and he apparently showed enough to warrant active status Sunday. He'll once again serve as the backup to starters Kenyan Drake and Damian Williams and see the majority of his work on special teams.
