Fantasy Impact:

Depending on Perine's vaccination status, symptoms, and upcoming test results, there is a chance he could miss next Sunday's game. With Joe Mixon less than 100 percent, Perine took the bulk of the snaps at running back in Week 5, logging 15 touches for 84 total yards and a touchdown. Mixon seems to be trending in the right direction, but regardless of his status, Perine's absence would lead to an increased workload for rookie Chris Evans, who had two catches against the Packers.
