Jets' La'Mical Perine has high-ankle sprain

New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers, head coach Adam Gase announced.

What It Means:

The injury likely explains why Perine played fewer than 20.0 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps for the first time since Week 4. He still rushed 8 times for 33 yards and a touchdown on the limited playing time, so the Jets may have actually intended on using Perine as a feature back as they claimed. Frank Gore will likely see an uptick in work Week 12 versus the Miami Dolphins if Perine is unavailable.

Perine and Gore are both averaging 3.6 yards per carry and are within 0.2 yards of each other in average yards after contact per rush attempt. The Dolphins have emerged as a bit of a run-funnel defense, as they have the best pass defense based on numberFire's efficiency metrics but rank 16th against the run.
