Jets' La'Mical Perine: Seven carries in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine rushed seven times for 24 yards and caught both of his targets for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Colts.

The Jets got blown out for a third consecutive week, but they continued to feed 37-year-old Frank Gore (15 carries for 57 yards) over the rookie Perine. It's tough to trust anyone in an offense that's averaging only 12.3 points per game despite scoring two garbage-time touchdowns in three games, and it looks like coach Adam Gase has no plans to remove Gore from the starting role as long as Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) remains on IR, further capping Perine's appeal.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Perine (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Head coach Adam Gase suggested prior to the practice that Perine would be a limited participant, but the Jets evidently felt that the rookie was capable of handling more work as the session unfolded. With the full workout under his belt, Perine should enter Sunday's game in Indianapolis without an injury designation, and he'll likely be in store for an enhanced role after making the most of his limited snaps in the Week 2 loss to the 49ers (three carries for 17 yards). Frank Gore is expected to remain the Jets' lead back Week 3, but expect Perine to cut into his workload after the veteran played 57 percent of the team's offensive snaps against San Francisco.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Limited again in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Despite having his reps capped in both of the Jets' first two practices of the week, Perine is still believed to be on track to play Sunday against the Colts. If Perine is active this weekend, coach Adam Gase hinted Thursday that the rookie could be more involved after he carried three times for 17 yards while playing nine offensive snaps in last week's loss to the 49ers, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Frank Gore still projects to serve as the Jets' lead option on the ground, though he may cede some touches to Perine and/or Kalen Ballage (ribs) after carrying 21 times against San Francisco.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Limited practice to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Perine still appears to be bothered by the ankle injury that pushed his NFL debut back a week, though he looked spry in limited action with 17 yards on three carries in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. If Perine can play through the injury once more against the Colts in Week 3, he could earn more touches in a backfield currently headlined by Frank Gore, with Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) on injured reserve.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Three carries in NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) rushed three times for 17 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-13 loss to San Francisco.

Perine looked decent in limited action in his NFL debut, but Frank Gore (21 carries for 63 yards) dominated the touches in the New York backfield. Coach Adam Gase values Gore's reliability, but it could behoove the Jets to see what they have in the rookie fourth-rounder out of Florida while Le'Veon Bell recovers from a hamstring injury. Look for Perine to be more involved against the Colts in Week 3.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Cleared to make NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Chris Ryan of NJ.com reports.

Perine's nagging ankle injury prevented him from playing in last week's loss to the Bills, but the rookie fourth-round pick will make his NFL debut Sunday. Though top back Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) is now on injured reserve, it's unclear how extensive of a role Perine might have behind Frank Gore, who is slated to start in Bell's stead. The Jets are keeping their other reserve running backs (Kalen Ballage and Josh Adams) active Sunday, so those two players in addition to Perine will all be vying for change-of-pace work behind Gore.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers after logging limited practices Thursday and Friday.

With Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) on IR and set to miss at least three weeks, Frank Gore is poised to start at running back for the Jets in Week 2. Kalen Ballage is also in the mix, but once Perine can prove that he's past his ankle injury, and he's trending toward active status Sunday, that's a context in which he could potentially emerge as a fantasy sleeper.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Could debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) will practice Friday, and head coach Adam Gase is hoping he will play Sunday against the 49ers, Zach Braziller of the New York Post reports.

Perine did not take the field last week nor at the Jets' first practice session this week, but he got some work in Thursday and will do the same Friday, so he will have a chance to suit up for the first time as a professional Week 2.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Will handle some team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Thursday that Perine (ankle) will take part in individual work and some team drills Thursday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Perine's low-ankle sprain has completely sidelined him since late training camp, but it looks as though he could upgrade to being listed as a 'limited' participant on Thursday's practice report. The rookie fourth-round pick still remains uncertain for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Won't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) won't practice Wednesday, but he's expected do some work with the trainers on the side during the session, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

The status of Perine, who was sidelined Week 1, gains added import for the Jets, with Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) now on injured reserve and set to miss at least three weeks. For now, the team's healthy running back options are Frank Gore, Kalen Ballage and practice squad member Josh Adams.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Uncertain for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase is uncertain about Perine (ankle) playing in Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Perine couldn't make his NFL debut Week 1 due to a low-ankle sprain, but if he can shake that off before Week 2, he could have an immediate role because Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) could miss time. It's worth monitoring Perine's practice status as the week carries on. If Perine's able to play, he'll likely serve in a secondary role with Frank Gore as the lead back and potentially Josh Adams rotating in as well.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Won't make debut versus Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional tilt against Buffalo, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Perine has yet to resume practicing since suffering a low-ankle sprain during the last week of training camp, so he may not yet be close to a return. That the Jets haven't placed Perine on injured reserve for a minimum of three weeks seems to indicate that the rookie will retake the field at some point this month, but even when healthy he's unlikely to handle significant carries behind Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (ankle) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Perine is working his way back from the low-ankle sprain he sustained late August. Though the rookie fourth-round pick isn't expected to miss a significant amount of time, he now only has two more chances to increase his practice participation ahead of a Week 1 divisional tilt in Buffalo. When available, Perine is expected to begin his career as the Jets' No. 3 running back behind Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Avoids major injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine was diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain, likely avoiding a long-term absence, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Reports from Sunday's practice didn't sound great, but it now seems the rookie fourth-round pick doesn't have a severe injury. Even if he isn't ready for the season opener, Perine should be available as the Jets' No. 3 running back at some point during the early portion of the campaign. Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore are expected to handle most of the backfield snaps.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Needs MRI for ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine is scheduled for an MRI after suffering an ankle injury Sunday afternoon, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Perine was able to exit the practice field without assistance, but he reportedly wasn't putting much pressure on his injured leg. His work with the second-string offense has earned the attention of beat writers, but it's nonetheless been Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore dominating reps with the first unit. Any absence for Perine would open the door for Kalen Ballage and/or Josh Adams (hamstring) to step up as the No. 3 RB, a role that could largely be limited to special teams work if Bell and Gore stay healthy.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Exits with possible leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine limped off the field at Sunday's practice with an apparent left leg injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Hughes says the injury "did not look great," with Perine's leg awkwardly bending under him. The rookie was able to limp off the field to be examined by the training staff, at least showing that he didn't need to be carted off. Perine made a strong impression on beat reporters with a 79-yard touchdown and a 36-yard scamper in Wednesday's scrimmage, but he mostly seems to be working with backups, solidly behind Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore. It isn't clear if the No. 3 backfield job will entail any snaps or touches at the beginning of the season.

Jets' La'Mical Perine: Stands out in Wednesday's scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine delivered a strong performance in Wednesday's scrimmage, scampering for a 79-yard touchdown run and gaining 36 yards on another carry, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

The rookie fourth-round pick out of Florida is currently listed third on the depth chart behind Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore, but he could surpass the latter as the season goes on if the Jets decide to prioritize youth and upside at the position. Even if he quickly supplants Gore for a second on the depth chart, Perine's role as a rookie will likely still be limited, given that Bell is projected to handle a three-down role.

Jets' Lamical Perine: Lands in Big Apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets selected Perine in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 120th overall.

The Florida product was the team's top runner for three consecutive seasons, but he likely profiles as a change-of-pace back at the NFL level. Perine did catch the third-most passes of any running back who attended the NFL Combine, but he seems to lack a certain type of burst to be an effective receiving weapon. Perine has a punishing running style, using his dense 5-foot-10, 216-pound frame to run through arm tackles. He'll likely compete with Josh Adams to be Le'Veon Bell's backup.
