Giants RB Paul Perkins Had Surgery This Offseason to Repair Pectoral Injury

Giants running back Paul Perkins suffered a pectoral injury this offseason that required surgery according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic.

Word of the injury first surfaced when Perkins was spotted with his left arm in a sling during minicamp this week. The 23-year-old apparently suffered the injury while working out on his own this spring but it is not known exactly when he underwent surgery. The fact that he underwent surgery indicates he likely suffered a tear and the typicla recovery time is six to eight months.

Originally a fifth-round pick out of UCLA in 2016, Perkins showed some promise in his rookie season but was a major disappointment in 2017with only 41 carries for 90 yards and no touchdowns in 11 games. Especially with the Giants expected to draft a running back early, perhaps even with the No. 2 overall pick if Penn State’s Saquon Barkley is available, it seems unlikely Perkins will have any meaningful role with the team in 2018.
