Perry agreed to sign a one-year, $3 million deal with the Chargers on Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Perryman will re-join the team which he played for during the first six seasons of his career. The 31-year-old popped in his first season after leaving the Chargers, tallying a career-high 154 tackles en route to his first career Pro Bowl campaign with the Raiders in 2021. His production came back down to earth over each of the last two seasons, as he tallied 83 tackles with the Raiders in 2021 before logging 76 tackles with the Texans in 2023. The 5-foot-11 inside linebacker also appeared in just 12 regular-season games during each of his past two campaigns. Perryman should provide a solid veteran presence for the Chargers, as the team currently includes two rather unproven inside linebackers in Nick Niemann and Daiyan Henley.

Ready to go for divisional round

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

Perryman (ribs) does not carry an injury designation into Saturday's divisional round matchup with the Ravens.

Perryman suffered an injury to his ribs in the Texans' wild-card round win over the Browns and he was limited at the team's three practices this week, but he appears to be ready to go for the divisional round. The middle linebacker recorded three solo tackles before exiting Houston's victory over Cleveland and he'll look to return to form with a full workload in Baltimore.

Avoids serious injury

Perryman's rib injury is not considered to be serious and he's expected to return for the divisional round, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Perryman exited the Texans' wild-card win over the Browns with a ribs injury, but it seems as if this issue won't hinder his availability going forward. The 31-year-old linebacker was able to record three total tackles, including one tackle for loss before exiting Saturday's affair and he'll look to add to those totals next weekend.

Exits wild-card game with rib issue

Perryman injured his ribs in Saturday's playoff contest against Cleveland and is questionable to return.

Perryman exited in the second half of the contest, though it's unclear how the injury occurred. The linebacker racked up three tackles early in the first quarter but hadn't posted any more between then and his exit. Neville Hewitt could see more snaps if Perryman is unable to return.

Active Sunday

Perryman (Achilles) is active for Sunday's game against the Browns.

The starting middle linebacker practiced on a limited basis throughout the week and carried a questionable tag into Sunday. In nine games this season, Perryman has 61 tackles and two passes defensed.

Listed as questionable for Week 16

Perryman (Achilles) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Perryman was a limited participant in all three practice sessions this week to give himself a chance to play Sunday. Since returning from his suspension, he has 20 tackles (11 solo) in three games.

Double-digit tackles in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-19

Perryman tallied 11 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Titans.

Perryman recorded double-digit tackles for the first time since Week 1, handling 92 percent of defensive snaps during the Houston's narrow overtime win. The veteran linebacker has handled at least 80 percent of defensive snaps in three of his last four appearances, putting him on the IDP fantasy radar as a potential flex option versus the Browns in Week 16.

Back from suspension

Perryman was reinstated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday.

Perryman is in line to return from a two-game suspension in Week 13 versus the Broncos. He's been productive when he's been on the field so far this season, making him a reasonable IDP play come Sunday.

Suspension reduced

Perryman's suspension, which is for repeated violations of playing rules intended to protect player health and safety of players, was reduced to two games Wednesday, Michael Signora of NFL Communications reports.

Perryman appealed his original suspension, which was originally levied for three games Tuesday after he accumulated six violations of this rule in his career. The appeal hearing officer James Thrash, who was jointly appointed by the NFL and NFLPA, decided to instead limit this suspension to just two games, leaving the middle linebacker sidelined Week 11 against Arizona and Week 12 versus Jacksonville. Perryman has accumulated 41 tackles over six games played this season, and he will likely reprise a role as Houston's starting middle linebacker once this suspension ends.
