Shane Vereen Injury: Patriots RB Hurts Foot

Backup running back Shane Vereen injured his foot in the New England Patriots' game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday night. He was taken out of the game and his return is questionable. Not much more is known about the injury at this time.

Vereen has played sparingly to this point in the contest. He has only two carries for negative yardage playing behind the Pats' Stevan Ridley and Danny Woodhead, who have received the bulk of the work. Last season, Vereen had 57 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown playing for New England.

The Bucs lead New England 14-7 approaching the midway point of the second quarter. Both teams are 1-1 on the season.
