Peerman (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
With Jeremy Hill (ankle), Giovani Bernard and Joe Mixon all lined up to play with the Bengals, Peerman wasn't slated for many offensive snaps anyway. He would have been able to vie for return opportunities if it wasn't for the emergence of Alex Erickson in 2016, so even if Peerman does get healthy enough to be activated, don't expect the Bengals to choose that route.
Peerman (undisclosed) was activated from the Non-Football Injury list Monday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Peerman passed his physical Monday and is expected to join the team at practice later for the first time in training camp. Though he's missed out on some critical reps, Peerman is an incumbent special teams captain who was never considered much of a threat to vault ahead of Joe Mixon, Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard on the depth chart at running back anyway.
Peerman has signed a one-year contract to remain with the Bengals, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
After missing the first 10 games of the 2016 season due to a fractured forearm, Peerman logged six carries for 15 yards in six games. Where he did make his mark, however, was on special teams.

With Giovani Bernard out for the year with an ACL tear, Peerman will look to take over the Bengals' third running back spot behind Jeremy Hill and Rex Burkhead.
Peerman (elbow) is a candidate to be added to the Bengals' active roster in advance of Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Peerman has been designated to return from the team's IR list, but it remains to be seen if he'll immediately fill the open spot that remains on the Bengals' roster. The team could use some backfield depth, with Giovani Bernard having suffered a season-ending injury and now down to Jeremy Hill and Rex Burkhead at running back.
Peerman (elbow) has been designated to return from the IR, over first-round pick William Jackson III.
Peerman can return to practice this week but hasn't yet been activated. But the decision to go with him over Jackson is a result of Giovani Bernard's season-ending injury, and reflects that the Bengals haven't yet given up on making the playoffs.

Peerman left Sunday's preseason game against the Jaguars with an air cast on his left arm, Paul Dehner of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
