Jets put La'Mical Perine (ankle) on injured reserve

The New York Jets placed running back Lamical Perine on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.

What It Means:

Perine will miss a minimum of three games. It's disappointing timing after Jets head coach Adam Gase claimed he wanted to feature Perine more over the final stretch of the season. He rushed 8 times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 on just 11 offensive snaps before injuring his ankle. The Jets signed Josh Adams to the active roster to replace Perine, but Frank Gore stands to benefit the most.

Perine was averaging 10.2 opportunities over the last five games. He has earned the fifth-worst rushing grade from Pro Football Focus this season among the 60 backs with at least 50 carries. Gore is 47th.
