Jets designate La'Mical Perine (ankle) to return

The New York Jets designated running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) to return from injured reserve.

What It Means:

Perine sustained a high-ankle sprain against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11 and was placed on injured reserve on November 24. He handled eight touches in each of his last two contests. It's unclear whether Perine will be activated for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Rams. The fourth-round rookie will likely join Frank Gore, Ty Johnson, and Josh Adams in some sort of committee.

Perine played in nine games for the Jets this season and has 55 carries for 202 yards and 2 touchdowns, plus 10 catches (13 targets) for 49 yards. The Rams are allowing the third-fewest FanDuel points per game to the running back position this season.
