Jets fourth-round pick RB La'Mical Perine shouldn't be missing too much time despite being carted off the practice field on Sunday with an injury.
MRI results showed that Perine suffered a low-ankle sprain, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed. Perine's recovery, then, shouldn't be an extended period of time.
Battling for the backup role behind Le'Veon Bell with Frank Gore, Perine has been commended for his work at training camp by his peers so far. The Florida product is expected to help out by giving Bell some rest, especially on third down where he's a solid pass catcher.
The Jets have also been mauled by injuries in training camp thus far, so Perine's diagnosis is actually one that the team will breathe a sigh of relief to.
Marcus Maye (calf tightness) also had to leave practice early on Sunday, while Breshad Perriman (knee) won't be practicing on Tuesday. Others like second-rounder Denzel Mims (hamstring), Brian Poole (reaction to dehydration), Greg Van Roten (oblique) and more have had to deal with ailments recently.
