Vereen will undergo surgery on his triceps injury, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

After supposedly completing his rehab from an injured triceps, Vereen returned from a nine-game absence in Week 14, only to aggravate the concern in just his second outing back in the fold. He'll thus end his second campaign with the Giants with 33 carries for 158 yards and one touchdown, which was accompanied by a typical 11 receptions (on 19 targets) for 94 yards across five appearances.

Vereen (triceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

EDGE Analysis

After re-injuring his triceps in Sunday's win over the Lions, the Giants determined that Vereen wouldn't be on track to return before the end of the season and opted to shut him down permanently. The team added running back George Winn to their 53-man roster in a corresponding move, but most of Vereen's duties as the Giants' third-down back figure to fall to either Paul Perkins or Bobby Rainey.

Coach Ben McAdoo relayed Monday that Vereen has re-injured his triceps.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen, who underwent surgery on a torn triceps earlier this season, saw action in two game since coming off IR, but with news that he's aggravated the injury, the running back's status for the rest of the season could be in jeopardy.

Vereen (triceps) wouldn't have participated had the Giants practiced Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen cleared concussion protocol to rush twice for 11 yards and catch two passes for nine yards Sunday against the Lions, but he still lands on the Giants injury report to start this week. With only a few days before Thursday's game against the Eagles, it's unlikely any of New York's players will be overextended in the buildup to kickoff, but Vereen's status is noteworthy nonetheless.

Vereen had two carries for 11 yards and two catches for nine yards Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

With the emergence of Paul Perkins behind starter Rashad Jennings, Vereen's snap-count upside is modest, but he'll touch the ball, especially as a pass catcher out of the backfield, when he's in the game.

Vereen (concussion) is active Sunday against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen was back in action last week for the first time since Week 3, but sustained a concussion after just three offensive snaps. The 27-year-old cleared the league's concussion protocol Saturday, however, putting him in line to suit up for the Week 15 home matchup. Though active, don't expect Vereen to be a major factor in the team's offensive game plan after logging limited practices all week. Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins are expected to lead the team's backfield Sunday, both of whom produced 15 carries for 45 yards last week against Dallas.

Vereen cleared the league's concussion protocol Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen returned after an 11 week absence in Week 14's win over the Cowboys, but came out of the contest with a concussion. However, he is now expected to play Sunday against the Lions after clearing the league's protocol. The versatile running back was limited at practice all week, but figures to be good to go Sunday.

Vereen (concussion) is considered questionable to play Sunday against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen suffered a concussion while playing for the first time since Week 3 following a triceps injury last Sunday. According to coach Ben McAdoo, Vereen remains in the league's protocol, meaning he won't be allowed to play until he's cleared by an independent neurologist. Whether that happens over the weekend remains to be seen, so Vereen's situation should be worthwhile to monitor ahead of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.

Vereen (concussion) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

On Sunday, Vereen sustained a concussion in his first game action since Week 3, and while his return is subject to the league's protocol, he worked in the non-contact portion of Wednesday's session, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Once the ailment is behind him, a pass-catching role awaits Vereen, but perhaps not much more due to Paul Perkins' status as Rashad Jennings' primary backup.

Head coach Ben McAdoo confirmed Monday that Vereen has entered the concussion protocol, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

EDGE Analysis

In his first game back from missing nine due to a triceps injury, Vereen logged just three snaps before sustaining a concussion. With their pass-catching running back potentially out of the picture in the short term, the Giants will rely upon Rashad Jennings and rookie Paul Perkins to fuel the rushing attack.
