    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Perine was competing for the starting running back job before the injury but could now be a question mark for the roster with Adrian Peterson, Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson in front of him. He probably should be avoided in all leagues since he likely would see limited touches if he stays with the Redskins.

  • Posted: 8/22/2018 6:56am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) worked on the side without pads Tuesday, Aug. 21.

    Huddle Up: Timing is everything. Perine needs to quickly return to remain in the race for touches.

  • Posted: 8/17/2018 11:54am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) is expected to miss about one week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This comes as a relief for Perine and anyone considering him in fantasy drafts. He could face a setback against Rob Kelley in the battle for assuming RB1 duties vacated by the injured Derrius Guice. Either way, the winner is no better than a flex consideration.

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 5:38pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) left the preseason game early Thursday, Aug. 16, and is being evaluated for an ankle sprain.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check to see if Perine is dealing with a significant injury or if it is minor. He is expected to be part of a committee at running back and is pushing for the starting job with Derrius Guice out. He could be a No. 3 running back in standard leagues if he starts this season.

  • Posted: 8/8/2018 12:12pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine might be the odd-man out on a depth chart with RBs Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley. Byron Marshall and Kapri Bibbs are also in the mix for jobs.

    Huddle Up: Perine showed some signs of life down the stretch last season, although he averaged just 3.4 yards per carry. Guice and Thompson are expected to be the top two backs, and head coach Jay Gruden has been praising Kelley. The team likely wants something in return for Perine rather than cutting him, so it's possible he might be traded unless injuries occur. For now, Perine's fantasy value is in the toilet, but that could change with a potential move to a less crowded backfield.

  • Posted: 2/25/2018 6:56pm ET

    The Washington Redskins are unlikely to 'invest major assets' in the running back position, according to Rich Tandler of NBC Washington, and Tandler believes RB Samaje Perine will enter the 2018 season as the starter.

    Huddle Up: Perine had a couple of strong performances last year, but he mostly underwhelmed. Throw in his limited work in the passing game, and even if Perine is the starter, he'll only be a RB3 for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 12/31/2017 11:50am ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) will not return to the team's Week 17 game because of his ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Perine may have a chance to compete for the starting running back job next season and could be a late-round draft pick in drafts.

  • Posted: 12/31/2017 10:18am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 17 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Perine took over the starting job this season when Rob Kelley suffered a season-ending injury and could have a chance to compete for the job during training camp. He could be a late-round pick in drafts next season.

  • Posted: 12/29/2017 1:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Perine has received at least 12 carries in each of the last six games and should receive a similar workload this week. He has rushed for at least 50 yards in only one of his last four games and may only be a flex option for most owners.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 12:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, shoulder) was a full practice participant Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Perine has a terrific matchup against the New York Giants in Washington's season finale. He can be started despite disappointing outings over the last month.

  • Posted: 12/27/2017 1:13pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, shoulder) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: It's been a lackluster few weeks for Perine. He has averaged a paltry 2.88 yards per carry on 60 carries over his last four games. He does have a great opportunity to rebound against one of the worst defenses in the NFL in the New York Giants, so give him one last chance to make up for himself.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 8:00pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed 17 times for 53 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards in a 27-11 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 16. He also lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Perine was examined for an Achilles' issue but was able to return and finished with 20 touches. He's really been struggling with efficiency lately, so he's no more than a flex play in the finale.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 12:40pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (Achilles') has returned to the team's Week 16 game after missing some time because of an Achilles' tendon injury.

    Huddle Up: Perine has posted decent numbers so far against the Denver Broncos in Week 16 and should be able to improve on those numbers. He will be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he plays in Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 12:34pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (Achilles') suffered an Achilles' tending injury in Week 16 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Perine entered the game with a hamstring injury and is now dealing with an Achilles' tendon injury. Kapri Bibbs will be the No. 1 running back while Perine is out and could be at least a flex option if he starts in Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 8:54am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin) is officially active for the team's Week 16 game.

    Huddle Up: Perine suffered the injury during practice this week and will be a risky option for owners because he could be limited by the injury. Owners could consider benching Perine if they have better options available.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 6:08am ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin) is considered a game-time decision for Week 16's game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Perine was listed as questionable on the injury report after tweaking his groin in practice Thursday, Dec. 21, which forced him to be held out of practice Friday, Dec. 22. Regardless of whether or not Perine is active, RB Kapri Bibbs is expected to see a great deal of playing time against his former team but should be viewed as nothing more than a low-end flex option.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 9:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin) said Friday, Dec. 22, that he was 'good' to face the Denver Broncos in Week 16, but head coach Jay Gruden said they would have a better idea about his status Saturday, Dec. 23.

    Huddle Up: Perine has been struggling recently, posting 45 yards or less in his last three games and averaging just 2.8 yards per carry in that span. Even if he does suit up, he would be no more than a desperation flex play.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 2:16pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin) did not practice Friday, Dec. 22, and he is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Perine is a roll of the dice for fantasy owners in Week 16. Check back Sunday morning for an update on his status. If he cannot go then newcomer Kapri Bibbs would be leaned up for more work.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 12:20pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin) tweaked his groin during practice Thursday Dec. 21, and was held out for the remainder of the practice. Head coach Jay Gruden believes it's a minor issue, but he doesn't know yet what Perine's status will be for Sunday.

    Huddle Up: Perine looks to be questionable for this week's contest against the Denver Broncos. The Redskins are already banged up at running back, and if Perine can't go then there will likely be a heavy dose of Kapri Bibbs. Bibbs is more valuable in PPR leagues but should be added if available depending on Perine's status.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 2:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed 14 times for just 37 yards in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added two catches for 29 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: It was a tough afternoon on the ground for both teams in this one, actually. Perine faces another difficult matchup in Week 16 when the Broncos and their stout rush defense come calling.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 8:31pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed 17 times for 45 yards and caught four passes for seven yards in a 30-13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Perine has followed back-to-back 100-yard games with two straight lackluster outings. The good news for his fantasy owners is that he has almost no competition for touches, giving him a decent floor as a flex option moving forward.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 9:55pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine ran 12 times for 38 yards in Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys. Perine also gained 31 yards on three receptions.

    Huddle Up: After gaining 126 and 130 total yards, respectively, in his previous two games, Perine managed just 69 against a Cowboys team that had lost three in a row by an average of more than 23 points per game. It was a disappointing showing and one that casts some doubt about Perine's reliability entering the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 6:54pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (concussion) has been cleared to return against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Perine avoided entering concussion protocol, which means his fantasy owners won't have to worry about his status going forward. He continues to be the workhorse on early downs for Washington.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 6:40pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (concussion) exited against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 30, and is being evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: If Perine is unable to return, third-down back Byron Marshall could also see some work on early downs. If Marshall is given a chance to lead the backfield, he will be a potential waiver wire target for Week 14 if Perine's injury is serious.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 3:26pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) practiced in full for a third straight day Wednesday, Nov. 29, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Perine is the bellcow in D.C. now that Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson are done for the season, and the rookie stepped up with 100 yards rushing against the Giants on Thanksgiving night. He's a solid RB2 across the board.

  • Posted: 11/28/2017 3:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Perine has quickly turned into Washington's featured back and has also quickly proven that he deserves to be just that. With a favorable schedule for the remainder of the year, Perine is solidly in the RB2 conversation.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 1:48pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was a full participant in practice Monday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: Perine has turned into a viable workhorse with Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson sidelined. In his last two tilts Perine has averaged 23.5 carries and 108.5 yards on the ground. He even added three catches for 30 yards last week. Keep starting him as an RB2 as long as he's healthy.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 8:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine finished with 21 carries for 96 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards in a 20-10 win over the New York Giants Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Perine has delivered more than 100 yards from scrimmage in back-to-back games, and he is taking command of the backfield. He looks like a solid RB2 against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 4:45pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) is officially active for the team's Week 12 game.

    Huddle Up: Perine should receive most of the work at running back with Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson out of the season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 6:03pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Perine should be able to play against the New York Giants, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. Perine should receive most of the touches at running back because the injuries the team has at the position and should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 11/21/2017 2:12pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 21.

    Huddle Up: Perine is the Redskins' workhorse running back going forward, with Byron Marshall spotting him on passing downs. Perine really showed up last week and established himself as Washington's go-to back thanks to injuries to fellow backfield mates. View Perine as an RB2 for the remainder of the season.

  • Posted: 11/20/2017 1:42pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Perine should be able to play this week and will receive most of the work at running back because of the injury to Chris Thompson. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 6:31pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed 23 times for 117 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for nine yards in a 34-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: With Chris Thompson going down with a broken leg, Perine should be in line for a sizeable workload going forward. He will have RB2 upside as a major player in Washington's solid offense.
