Giants' Shane Vereen: Undergoes surgery Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen underwent surgery on his torn triceps Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Initially, Vereen's return timetable was believed to be two months, but Raanan relayed that the running back likely won't achieve full health until late December. In the event the Giants are in playoff contention at that point, they could (and very likely will) activate Vereen from the Reserve/Injured list. Upon his potential return, his role could include anything from No. 1 RB to third-down pass-catching back, depending on the health of Rashad Jennings (thumb) and company.

Giants' Shane Vereen: Placed on IR, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vereen (triceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

As expected, Vereen can officially be ruled out for the next eight weeks, ineligible to return until late November. He's a strong candidate to be New York's one player to return from injured reserve, as the team's other players on the list were merely depth pieces prior to suffering their injuries. Granted, there's no assurance Vereen will be ready by the end of the season, as he's set to undergo surgery to repair a torn triceps. The recovery timetable is estimated at two months, but other players have missed entire seasons with the same injury. If Rashad Jennings (thumb) misses more time, Orleans Darkwa will likely be the new starter, with Paul Perkins and Bobby Rainey potentially also involved.

Giants' Shane Vereen: Could return later this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vereen is likely to undergo surgery on his triceps injury, but is a candidate to be placed on injured reserve and return later this season given the procedure's two-month recovery timetable, NFL.com's Mike Garafolo reports.

Vereen was initially thought to be lost for this season due to his triceps injury suffered Sunday, but the Giants have since backtracked on that outlook, as the NFL's new injured reserve rules could make him eligible to return after eight weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That preserves hope that Vereen could be healthy to play the last month or so of this season, which would obviously help New York's backfield options. While it remains to be seen exactly how Vereen's situation will pan out, the Giants' immediate focus will turn to the status of fellow running back Rashad Jennings (thumb) ahead of next Monday night's game against the Vikings.

Giants' Shane Vereen: Suffers season-ending triceps injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vereen will miss the rest of the season due to a triceps injury.

With Rashad Jennings (thumb) out of commission in Week 3, Vereen split the workload with Orleans Darkwa out of the Giants' backfield, racking up 11 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown. Vereen supplemented his line with a typical two catches (on five targets) for 28 yards, but his season will now come to an abrupt end. Depending on his health, Jennings could return to the No. 1 spot in the RB pecking order next Monday night at Minnesota. However, Darkwa (10 rushes for 53 yards and one TD on Sunday) and Paul Perkins (active but no touches) are waiting in the wings in the event Jennings is out for the second game in a row.

Giants' Shane Vereen: Finds end zone Sunday versus Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen carried 11 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Redskins. He added a pair of catches on five targets for another 28 yards and lost a fumble for the second straight game.

Starting in place of the injured Rashad Jennings (thumb), Vereen was quite effective running the ball, as he averaged over six yards per carry and found the end zone on the first drive of the game. He uncharacteristically failed to make a huge impact in the passing game, but the five looks he received were tied for third on the team. Vereen's fumble opened the door for Orleans Darkwa so see additional work, as the latter finished with 10 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown of his own. It remains to be seen if Jennings will miss next week's road game versus the Vikings, but if he does, a timeshare between Vereen and Darkwa will likely be in order.
