The New York Giants waived running back Paul Perkins (pectoral) on Thursday. Perkins, 23, suffered what a source believes to be a pectoral tear while working out before the start of the team's offseason program. Perkins was waived with a non-football injury designation. Because of his injury, Perkins is unlikely to be claimed, and he could be out for around six months, which is a big blow for his chances of landing with another team. Perkins wasn't expected to see much work in this year's backfield, though, especially after the team drafted Saquon Barkley second overall.
Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (pectoral) was waived/injured Thursday, May 10, and will revert to the team's Reserve/Injured list if he is not claimed off waivers.

New York Giants running back Paul Perkins (pectoral) required surgery for his pectoral injury that he suffered while working out before the team's offseason workouts, according to a source. There is no timetable for how long he'll be sidelined. It's not good news for a running back that was looking at a decreased role heading into 2018 with veteran Jonathan Stewart now in the mix. The Giants are expected to draft Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at second overall on Thursday, too. Perkins could end up being sidelined into training camp.
Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (pectoral) had surgery on a torn pectoral muscle. The extent of his injury and timetable are unknown.
New York Giants running back Paul Perkins (pectoral) injured his pectoral while training in the offseason, and his arm is in a sling during the team's workouts this week. It's unclear how long Perkins will be out, so stay tuned for more information on his injury. He was disappointing in 2017, rushing just 41 times for 90 yards in 11 games for the G-Men. New York already signed veteran Jonathan Stewart in free agency and are fully expected to draft Penn State stud running back Saquon Barkley second overall on Thursday, so Perkins might be on the outside looking in heading into training camp anyway. There's also Wayne Gallman to worry about.
