This comes after RBs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman sustained injuries during Week 2.

Perkins, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Giants back in 2016. The Giants waived Perkins with a non-football injury designation last year and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. 

New York elected to cut Perkins loose and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Lions. He spent some time with the Lions earlier in 2019 before being waived. 

From there, Perkins signed on to the Ravens’ practice squad in January but was cut loose a few weeks later. 

In 2019, Perkins appeared in four games for the Lions and rushed for 29 yards on 12 carries and caught one pass for nine yards.
