Shane Vereen re-tore his triceps in the Giants' Week 15 win over the Lions.
Coach Ben McAdoo confirmed the report. Vereen requires surgery. Vereen initially tore his triceps back in Week 3 and spent 10 weeks on I.R. before returning to action in Week 14. He clearly wasn't 100 percent and rushed back. Moving forward, the Giants will roll with a two-man committee of Rashad Jennings and rookie Paul Perkins. Vereen is signed through 2017 but could be a release candidate this spring. Mon, Dec 19, 2016 06:39:00 PM

Shane Vereen re-injured his triceps in the Giants' Week 15 win over the Lions.

Vereen spent two months on I.R. earlier this season with a torn triceps and just returned in Week 14. In most cases, players miss the entire season with a torn triceps, so Vereen probably rushed back at less than 100 percent. If he's re-torn it, Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins will handle the backfield.

Shane Vereen rushed two times for 11 yards and caught 2-of-4 targets for nine yards in the Giants' Week 15 win over the Lions.

Vereen cleared the concussion protocol on Saturday but was nothing more than the sparingly-used pass-game back behind Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins, who combined for 29 touches. Vereen isn't on the redraft radar.

Shane Vereen (concussion) is active for Week 15 against the Lions.

He cleared the protocol on Saturday and will handle pass-game work in a matchup not ripe for fantasy stats. Inactive for the Giants are QB Ryan Nassib, WR Tavarres King, S Nat Berhe, LB Deontae Skinner, OT Will Beatty, and DE Jason Pierre-Paul, and DT Robert Thomas.

Shane Vereen (questionable) has cleared the concussion protocol.

Despite the questionable tag, he will play Week 15 against the Lions. Vereen suffered the concussion just three snaps into his first game action since Week 3, so it is impossible to know what kind of workload to expect against Detroit. Vereen should be left on the bench this week.

Shane Vereen (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Lions.

It means he has at least one more hurdle to clear before receiving medical clearance. Vereen practiced every day this week, which is a good sign. If he returns, Vereen will cut into the passing-down work of Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins.

Shane Vereen (concussion) is participating in Thursday's practice.

It is Vereen's second practice in a row after suffering a concussion last Sunday. He is on track to play this week.

Shane Vereen (concussion) is practicing Wednesday.

Vereen suffered a concussion in the Week 14 win over the Cowboys, so he's likely still in the league's protocol. Since he's on the field Wednesday, it sets him up with a good chance to be cleared in time for Week 15.

Shane Vereen suffered a concussion in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Vereen was just activated off injured reserve. He took a big hit on his first catch and was immediately ruled out. Vereen's absence creates more snaps for Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins.

Shane Vereen (triceps) is active for Week 14 against Dallas.

Vereen was expected to play after being activated off injured reserve. He'll resume a pass-down role in a committee with Rashad Jennings. The Giants inactives are LG Justin Pugh, QB Josh Johnson, WR Tavarres King, S Nat Berhe, DE Owa Odighizuwa, DE Jason Pierre-Paul, and LB Mark Herzlich.

Giants activated Shane Vereen (triceps) off injured reserve.

The transaction is not yet official, but it is expected to come "barring anything unforeseen" during Saturday's practice. Vereen is also expected to be active Sunday night against the Cowboys, but his role is questionable in an already jumbled backfield. Vereen is a fine stash in PPR leagues, but he is too risky to trust in the first week of the playoffs. Vereen's presence makes Rashad Jennings an even lower floor RB3.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Shane Vereen (triceps, injured reserve) looked to be "in good condition" in his first practice Wednesday.

Conditioning can be a concern coming out of a long injury layoff, but Vereen's triceps injury did not affect his ability to run. He will still have to prove his strength is back before the Giants allow him on the field, but it looks like he has a good shot to return next week against the Cowboys. Vereen is worth a look in PPR formats.

Shane Vereen (triceps, I.R.) returned to practice Wednesday.

It opens a three-week window for the Giants to activate him. Vereen isn't going to play this week against the Steelers, but if he gets through this practice week clean and another next week, then there's a very real chance he plays Week 14. Vereen would immediately reclaim pass-down duties.

Speaking Monday, Giants coach Ben McAdoo refused to say whether Shane Vereen (triceps, injured reserve) was ready to resume practicing.

"We'll wait and see," McAdoo said. "We'll take a look at that." Evidently the progress of the Giants' injured third-down back is a closely-guarded competitive secret. The G-Men are reportedly targeting a Week 14 return.
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 01:45:00 PM

The Giants are hopeful Shane Vereen (triceps, I.R.) will return for Week 14.

The Giants' passing-down back, Vereen tore his triceps in Week 3. His placement on I.R. cost him the ensuing eight-plus weeks, but the Giants remained hopeful for a late-season return and it appears Vereen will indeed be back in a few weeks. Vereen would be more of a threat to Paul Perkins' playing time than Rashad Jennings, who has taken over as New York's bellcow runner.
