Returns from COVID list
The Bengals reinstated Perine (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.
Perine had resided on the list since Oct. 11 after testing positive for the virus. Now that he's completed a quarantine and has cleared all health and safety protocols, Perine should be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Chris Evans served as the top backup to Joe Mixon in last week's win over Detroit, but Perine could reclaim the No. 2 role Week 7, especially after Evans was limited in practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury.
