NEW YORK (AP) — La’Mical Perine was drafted in April to be the New York Jets’ running back of the future. Well, that might be now. And a bit sooner than many probably expected. The Jets’ jammed-up backfield got a little less crowded Tuesday night when Le’Veon Bell was released. The carries might start to shift more toward Perine when the 0-5 Jets take on the AFC East-rival Dolphins in Miami on Sunday.
