Vereen (triceps) returned to practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The Giants signaled their intentions Tuesday with the placement of running back Orleans Darkwa (lower leg) on injured reserve, but Vereen has now taken the first step toward his first game action since Week 3. It's unclear when exactly Vereen will be given the all-clear by the training staff. Having said that, he's on pace to be back in the backfield mix before season's end.
