Candidate for Week 12 start
Perkins is expected to take first-team reps at quarterback Wednesday and could start Sunday's road matchup against the Chiefs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Perkins was serviceable during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Saints, when he relieved Matthew Stafford (concussion protocol) with 5:47 remaining in the third quarter and completed five of 10 passes for 64 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. He also ran five times for 39 yards. With top backup John Wolford (neck) also dealing with an injury, Perkins, the Rams' third-string quarterback, could be called upon to draw his first career NFL start Sunday in Kansas City. Fantasy managers will need to monitor the practice activity of Los Angeles' entire quarterback room Week 12.
