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 that way because he is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, with Beasley suggesting that De'Veon Smith could end up backing up Kenyan Drake at running back this weekend, given that Damien Williams (shoulder) has already been ruled out for Sunday's 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.
