    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen rushed seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown Week 1. He also had five catches for 35 yards. He played in 71 percent of the snaps in Week 1. RB Stevan Ridley had eight rushes for 21 yards and two catches in Week 1 while playing in 26 percent of the snaps.

    Huddle Up: Ridley still had more rushing attempts than Vereen, but it was notable that the Patriots didn't stick with Ridley at the goal line and Vereen scored a short touchdown. In the always-effective and equally muddy New England backfield, Vereen is clearly the lead dog; Ridley will need to regain goal line looks to salvage fantasy value.

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen was in for 26 offensive snaps in the first half of the preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, against the Carolina Panthers, a team-high among running backs.

    Huddle Up: Vereen didn't see much action in New England's first two games but he exploded for 75 total yards, five receptions and two touchdowns in the Patriots' dress rehearsal. Vereen is locked in as a RB2 in PPR formats. He'll lead the Patriots' backfield in touches this year as long as he's healthy.

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen said his broken wrist is still not to where it was before he suffered the injury. He said he does not think his wrist will be 100 percent for a while but is working on strengthening the wrist.

    Huddle Up: Definitely something to monitor in sizing up the fantasy draft stock of one of the top PPR RBs in the league.

  • Posted: 1/9/2014 11:26pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (groin) appears to have a good chance to play in the Divisional Round playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Definitely expect to see Vereen, who's been a limited participant in practice all week.

  • Posted: 12/28/2013 12:58pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (groin) could be inactive for the team's Week 17 game so he can get an extra week of rest for his injured groin.

    Huddle Up: Vereen will likely be held for the playoffs, which means Stevan Ridley and LeGarrette Blount will split carries against Buffalo's porous rush defense. Both make for solid flex plays this week, as each player could find the end zone.

  • Posted: 12/27/2013 10:29pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (groin) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Vereen has been limited the past 2 days in practice and appears headed for a game-time decision. Check the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives. Injury and Weather report Sunday for the final green or red light.

  • Posted: 12/26/2013 11:24pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.

    Huddle Up: Vereen's Week 17 status remains very much up in the air, so see what the RB can do Friday and brace for a game-time decision Sunday.

  • Posted: 12/25/2013 11:30pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (groin) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.

    Huddle Up: Vereen is likely headed for a game-time decision. He's killed fantasy owners the last two weeks and now Vereen is highly questionable. Leave him on your bench regardless if he plays or not.

  • Posted: 12/24/2013 5:57pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (groin) participated in the team's walkthrough Tuesday, Dec. 24.

    Huddle Up: Vereen had to exit in 2nd quarter of the Pats' Week 16 win and would seem iffy for Week 17, but see what develops later this week in practice.

  • Posted: 12/9/2013 1:35am ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen carried three times for nine yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns, and he added 12 receptions for a career-high 153 yards.

    Huddle Up: He should mitigate the loss of Rob Gronkowski. Vereen is PPR gold.

  • Posted: 11/19/2013 12:38am ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen rushed only 1 time for 7 yards but caught a game-high 8 passes for 65 yards on Monday, Nov. 18 in a 24-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: So much for the reports that Vereen would be "eased" back into action in his return from a broken wrist as he was targeted a game-high 11 times as the focal point of the Pats' passing game. He now has 15 receptions in 2 games this season and is a must-start in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 11/18/2013 5:08pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (wrist), who will be activated from the short-term Injured Reserve in time for the team's Week 11 matchup against the Carolina Panthers, will be eased back into the game plan, according to a source. Vereen rushed for a career-high 101 yards in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: In case you were waiting to see if he was starting, go ahead and insert him into your lineups. We have no idea what "eased" means, though, so start him at your own risk.

  • Posted: 11/14/2013 4:48pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (wrist) was on the practice field Thursday, Nov. 14, and is gradually increasing his workload in practice. "It's good to have him back on the field," coach Bill Belichick said Thursday before practice. "This will really be an opportunity for us to evaluate this week kind of where he is, give him some harder assignments and see how he's doing. He's been able to be active and participate but I'd say it will be a higher level competition for him this week on the practice field. As it should be, gradually escalate the intensity of it and see how it goes."

    Huddle Up: Vereen remains a question mark for Week 11, and Steven Ridley's fantasy owners in particular are bracing for more N.E. backfield chaos. Vereen, though, will have the most impact as a pass-catcher, giving Tom Brady's fantasy stock a nudge.

  • Posted: 11/11/2013 10:24pm ET

    New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said RB Shane Vereen (wrist) will have a role when he is activated from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list but is not sure when Vereen will be able to return. 'As soon as he is ready and able to help us and we are able to play him, certainly he will have a role in the game. He definitely did make a big impact in game one. I don't know if we can expect him to do that right off the bat in his first game back, whenever that is. We'll look forward to having him back.'

    Huddle Up: Vereen hasn't played since the opening week of the season, and while his return will give Tom Brady a valuable pass-catching target, it will also further cloud the Pats' already crowded backfield of Stevan Ridley, Brandon Bolden and LeGarrette Blount.

  • Posted: 10/17/2013 2:03pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (hand) is not wearing a brace or cast on his hand Thursday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Another sign that Vereen is making good progress but he won't muddle the Pats' backfield until at least Week 11 as he's eligible to come off the IR/DTR list Week 9 and the Pats are on bye Week 10.
