Giants' Shane Vereen: Will shoulder pass-catching duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen is expected to handle most of the Giants' snaps at running back on passing downs, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Vereen is pegged behind Paul Perkins on the depth chart at running back, but the veteran is rightfully considered the team's top receiver out of the backfield, given the aptitude he's showed in that area throughout his career. Furthermore, with the Giants sporting the same underwhelming offensive line as last season, coach Ben McAdoo has chosen to deploy a quick-release passing game so far in training camp, emphasizing screens and plays that get the ball out of quarterback Eli Manning's hands as soon as possible. Those play designs figure to benefit Vereen greatly, assuming he can stay healthy. Last season, the 28-year-old played just five games after tearing his triceps twice, but Vereen appears to be back to full speed after a lower-leg injury limited his involvement earlier in camp.

Giants' Shane Vereen: Working off to side at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen (lower leg) is working off to the side at Thursday's practice, Newsday's Art Stapleton reports.

Vereen will miss a third straight practice, but his ability to do some individual work suggests his lower leg injury isn't serious. He's slated for his usual role as the passing down back, after missing most of last season with a triceps injury.

Giants' Shane Vereen: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen didn't practice Wednesday due to "lower leg soreness," Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

What was deemed a "lower-body" injury Tuesday has been clarified as a sore lower leg, but the key here is Vereen taking a seat for a second straight day. On a positive note, he worked on the side with trainers, per James Kratch of, so he may be approaching an appearance on the practice field soon. Once healthy, Vereen will be the primary pass catcher out of the Giants backfield.

Giants' Shane Vereen: Tending to 'lower-body' injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen was held out of practice Tuesday due to a "lower-body" injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Head coach Ben McAdoo was ambiguous about the nature of the injury, but he also termed Vereen as "sore," so the running back may be merely feeling the aches and pains associated with an elevated workload. With Vereen absent, the Giants now have two members of the backfield sitting out -- also, Shaun Draughn (ankle) -- which is likely solidifying Paul Perkins even further as the unquestioned No. 1 back. No matter, if healthy, Vereen will contribute as a pass catcher, at the very least.

Giants' Shane Vereen: Recovered from 2016 triceps injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen (triceps) is healthy after twice tearing his triceps last season, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

Vereen originally hurt his triceps in Week 3 and missed the ensuing nine games while in recovery. However, he perhaps rushed back too soon, as the veteran scatback aggravated the same muscle in Week 14 and subsequently required season-ending corrective surgery. Thankfully, for Vereen, the Giants didn't bring in any legitimate threats to his role as the team's third-down back this offseason, leaving him a clearly-defined role on offense in advance of the 2017 campaign.
