Bengals' Samaje Perine: Special teams only
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine once again was limited to special teams duty only in the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Niners.

Perine's roster spot could be in jeopardy once Trayveon Williams (foot) is ready to suit up - it's pretty clear he's not in the Bengals' offensive plans.

Bengals' Samaje Perine: Virtually unused Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine saw just one snap against the Seahawks on Sunday and wasn't given a carry.

The new addition from the Redskins was up against it with a short time to learn the Bengals offense, but even after Joe Mixon got hurt in the third quarter, the Bengals still didn't look for him.

Bengals' Samaje Perine: Rejoins Mixon in Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals claimed Perine off waivers Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Perine earned steady praise from Redskins coach Jay Gruden throughout spring and summer, but the team ultimately didn't need another power runner behind Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson. The 2017 fourth-round pick now gets a better opportunity in Cincinnati, where Rodney Anderson just suffered a season-ending knee injury and fellow rookie Trayveon Williams is dealing with a foot issue. Perine will slot in third or fourth on the depth chart, behind college teammate Joe Mixon and No. 2 running back Giovani Bernard.

Samaje Perine: Jettisoned by Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine was cut by the Redskins on Saturday, John Keim of reports.

It's not entirely surprising to see Perine hit waivers considering the Redskins utilized Byron Marshall and Craig Reynolds extensively in the fourth preseason game in lieu of the 2017 fourth-round pick. A dismal 3.4 yards-per-carry average in his rookie season seemed to doom Perine from the start, as the third-year back was completely relegated to a depth piece last season despite a season-ending injuries to both Chris Thompson and Derrius Guice during different junctures of the campaign. The 23-year-old could catch on as a backup with another team, but he'd have to fall into an awfully desperate situation to be considered someone of fantasy value in 2019.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Finishes up with 13 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine ran for 13 yards on five carries during Thursday's 20-7 preseason loss to Baltimore.

Perine was quiet for much of Thursday as Washington gave extra opportunities to Byron Marshall and Craig Reynolds, players competing with Perine for the RB4 job, should it even exist. The Oklahoma product saw his usage plummet in 2018 as compared to his rookie season, 197 touches to 11 and that was before Derrius Guice entered the fold while healthy. It wouldn't be too surprising to see his tenure in the coming days.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (undisclosed) was spotted at practice Monday, John Keim of reports.

Perine slots in behind Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson and Adrian Peterson on Washington's running back depth chart, which limits his fantasy utility for now, but his return to practice Monday will at least allow him to attempt to secure his role as a depth option in the team's backfield.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Working with rehab group Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine worked out on the side of Sunday's practice due to an undisclosed injury, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Perine hadn't shown any sign of injury prior to Sunday. The team has not expressed much concern over the running back's health and it may just be a minor issue. Perine is currently fighting for a depth spot with Washington and any prolonged absence will hurt his chances at the regular-season roster.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Accrues 14 yards from scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine notched six carries for 13 yards and gathered in one of two passes for one yard during Thursday's preseason loss in Cleveland.

With all of Adrian Peterson (ankle), Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson not taking the field, Perine got the start at running back, but he didn't do much with the opportunity. Granted, Perine reeled off a 14-yard run that was nullified by penalty, but only two of his seven touches went for more than three yards. He likely will get plenty of opportunity this preseason to prove he belongs on the 53-man roster, but his climb to such a role is blocked by the aforementioned trio and 2019 fourth-round pick Bryce Love (knee).

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Impressing at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said Perine has been Washington's most impressive running back this spring, John Keim of reports.

Regardless, the third-year pro will be battling for a back-end roster spot in a position group that includes Derrius Guice (knee), Chris Thompson, Adrian Peterson and fourth-round pick Bryce Love (knee). There's a good chance the team stashes Love on injured reserve or the PUP list, potentially creating an opening for Perine to land the No. 4 spot if it exists.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Facing tough roster odds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine is stuck in a crowded backfield with Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice (knee) and Chris Thompson, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports.

Guice's tricky rehab from a torn ACL and subsequent infection is the complicating factor, potentially opening a door for Perine, Byron Marshall or Russell Hansbrough to earn a role. Even so, it's hard to see how Perine fits the plan in Washington, considering he logged just 30 snaps on offense and 39 on special teams in 2018. The 2017 fourth-round pick will have a tough time earning a spot on the 53-man roster unless he establishes value as a blocker and coverage man on special teams. The Redskins likely would be happy to trade Perine, but there's no serious market for a one-dimensional running back with a career mark of 3.5 yards per carry.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Barely plays in second season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine finished 2018 with eight carries for 32 yards and three catches for five yards in five games.

Disappointing as a rookie, the 2017 fourth-round pick spent most of his sophomore campaign serving as a healthy scratch. Perine likely will need to compete for a roster spot in 2019, though he could find an opening for a meaningful role if Adrian Peterson leaves Washington and Derrius Guice (knee) continues to struggle through the rehab process from a torn ACL.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Healthy inactive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (coach's decision) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Titans.

Saturday's designation means Perine will miss his sixth straight game and fourth as a healthy inactive. Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson and Byron Marshall will continue to field the touches out of the backfield.

December 16, 2018 12:28 PM
Redskins' Samaje Perine: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

Perine will sit out for his fifth straight game and his third as a healthy inactive. With Perine watching from the sidelines, Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson and Byron Marshall will work in the backfield.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Not available Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Perine's inclusion on the Redskins' inactive list is less surprising than that of Kapri Bibbs, who also is a healthy scratch. With the duo unavailable Sunday, Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson and Byron Marshall will compose the options out of the backfield.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Inactive Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Eagles.

Perine has only run the ball five times this season for a total of 25 yards, and with Chris Thompson (ribs) back in action Monday, the Redskins are not in need of a fourth running back. They will instead roll with Thompson, Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs in a key divisional matchup. As long as all three aforementioned backs stay healthy, it will be difficult for Perine to see playing time in Washington's backfield this season.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (calf) isn't listed on the Redskins' initial Week 13 injury report.

With a longer turnaround time between games after the Redskins played on Thanksgiving Day in Week 12, Perine looks like he'll enter the team's Monday night matchup with the Eagles at full strength. However, it's uncertain if his improved health will be enough for him to escape the inactive list. Washington is expected to get pass-catching specialist Chris Thompson (ribs) back from a four-game absence this week, giving the team an option to pair with top ballcarrier Adrian Peterson (shoulder). Meanwhile, Kapri Bibbs remains on hand as a depth option in the backfield and has a consistent role on special teams, lessening the team's need to keep Perine active as a fourth running back.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Inactive Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (calf) is listed as inactive Thursday in Dallas.

With Perine and Chris Thompson (ribs) out of commission, Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall will be afforded the few running back touches that don't go to Adrian Peterson in Week 12.

November 22, 2018 12:25 PM
Redskins' Samaje Perine: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (calf) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game in Dallas.

Perine opened the week as a non-participant in practice before upgrading to limited showings Tuesday and Wednesday. With Adrian Peterson taking most of the carries while Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall handle passing-down work, Perine may stay on the inactive list even if he's healthy enough to play.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Limited Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (calf) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Perine missed Sunday's game against the Texans and was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report. His return to practice on a limited basis is encouraging, but because the Redskins play on Thursday, he might not be fully ready in time for Week 12.

November 19, 2018 08:26 PM
Redskins' Samaje Perine: Listed as non-participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perine (calf) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.

Although Perine got rid of the knee injury that appeared on the practice report last Thursday and Friday, he wouldn't have participated Monday if the Redskins held a session. He has two more practices to prove his health, with the aim to provide support to starter Adrian Peterson (shoulder) on Thursday in Dallas. If Perine and Chris Thompson (rib) are sidelined again, Kapri Bibbs and Byron Marshall would be afforded those opportunities.
