Returning to Kansas City
The Chiefs signed Perine to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Perine didn't actually suit up for a game with Kansas City after signing to the practice squad in late January, but he will get a chance to compete for a role this offseason. The running back was elevated for a game with Miami but didn't handle any snaps, and he also spent time on the Eagles' practice squad early in the 2022 campaign.

Signs with Chiefs' practice squad
Kansas City signed Perine to its practice squad Saturday.
Perine did not play in any game during the 2022 regular season, but the Chiefs saw fit to bring him onto their practice squad ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game. As long as Isiah Pacheco, Jerick McKinnon and Ronald Jones remain healthy though, Perine is a long shot to be elevated.
Back to practice squad Monday
Perine reverted to the Dolphins' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Perine was elevated ahead of Sunday's wild-card loss to Buffalo to help provide depth with primary running back Raheem Mostert ruled out due to a broken thumb. While the 24-year-old Perine was active, he never wound up seeing the field behind Jeff Wilson and Salvon Ahmed, as these two were the only Dolphins running backs to log any carries. As a result, Perine failed to appear in a game over the course of a season for the first time in his three-year career.
Joins active roster
The Dolphins elevated Perine from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's wild-card contest at Buffalo.
The third-year pro has resided on Miami's practice squad since mid-October, but with Raheem Mostert out Sunday due to a broken thumb, the team was in need of reinforcements in the backfield. Jeff Wilson is slated to be the primary runner in place of Mostert, but Perine and Salvon Ahmed will be available for touches if needed. Through 14 games with the Jets between 2020 and 2021, Perine averaged 3.7 YPC on his 72 rushes, hauled in 11 of 15 targets for 63 yards and scored two touchdowns on the ground.
