Gets chance to lead backfield

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Perine rushed the ball 21 times for 76 yards in Sunday's 13-12 win over the Chargers. He added three receptions on four targets for 33 yards.

Perine got the chance to lead the Kansas City backfield with Isiah Pacheco rested and Clyde Edwards-Helaire used sparingly. He delivered a solid performance, with his longest play of the day going for 25 yards on a reception early in the third quarter. This marked Perine's fifth appearance of the season, though he has played primarily on special teams. If he's active during the Chiefs' postseason run, his role is likely to remain similar.

The Chiefs signed Perine to their 53-man roster Sunday.

The move comes with Jerick McKinnon being placed on the Chiefs' injured reserve list with a groin injury. Perine joined the team's practice squad Aug. 30 and has been elevated by the team twice this year. He'll take over as the RB3 in the Chiefs' backfield behind Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Back to practice squad

Perine reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday.

Perine saw time on both offense and defense during Kansas City's win over the Raiders on Sunday but failed to record any stats. Though two games played this season the 25-year-old has carried the ball just once for a one-yard gain and failed to bring in his only target.

The Chiefs elevated Perine to the active roster Saturday.

The move comes with Jerick McKinnon ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders with a groin injury. This will be the third time that Perine has been called up from the practice squad this season. In his last outing in Week 9 against the Dolphins, Perine played eight snaps (four each on offense and special teams) and gained one yard on one carry.

Reverts to practice squad

The Chiefs reverted Perine to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Perine was elevated for the second time this season ahead of Sunday's Week 9 win over Miami in Germany, and he logged four offensive snaps in that contest, gaining one yard on one rush and failing to bring in his only target. The 25-year-old's opportunity in that game came as a result of Clyde Edwards-Helaire sitting out due to an illness. Kansas City is on bye this week, which could give Edwards-Helaire ample time to recover and thus render Perine's services unnecessary for Week 11.

Elevated Saturday

The Chiefs promoted Perine to their active roster Saturday, Matt Derrick of reports.

Perine has spent the majority of the year Kansas City's practice squad, but with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) missing this Sunday's contest, he's been added to the team's active roster. The 25-year-old running back's last in-game action came in 2021, recording 31 rushing yards in four games with the Jets.

Perine was picked up by the Chiefs' practice squd Wednesday.
