Vereen is dealing with a shoulder injury. Vereen's status will likely be determined based on whether he's able to improve throughout the week.
Vereen might be in for more light work in Week 3 when the Raiders head to Foxboro.
Vereen led the team with 36 yards on seven carries, cashing in a 2-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He caught five passes for 35 yards. Ridley ran eight times for 21 yards and had two receptions for 7 yards.
Vereen was a contrubitor in both the rushing as well as the passing game, as he actually led the team in rushing yards with 36 on seven carries. He scored a 2-yard touchdown in the first quarter, and added five receptions for 35 yards through the air.
Vereen filled his expected role in Week 1, and will look to do so again in Week 2 against the Vikings next Sunday.
Vereen was almost a non-factor in Miami's 24-20 win over the Patriots in Week 15 last season, as he caught just three passes for 8 yards while rushing twice for 13. That was a disappointing showing against a middle-of-the-road defensive unit, but Vereen has actually struggling to find much room to operate against the Dolphins in his career, racking up just 65 yards through the ground and 8 yards through the air in three career games.
The Dolphins allowed just two touchdowns through the air to opposing running backs a year ago, and only one touchdown total over the final seven games of the season. History is not on Vereen's side for a big game in Week 1, but he should still get enough looks in the offense to be a solid No. 2 Fantasy option to open the season.
