Shane Vereen RB NE 2 Days

Vereen (ankle) was one of 15 players listed as limited at practice by the Patriots on Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.

More on Vereen's status as the week continues, though with no reported setbacks in Week 16, we suspect that he'll be healthy enough to suit up Sunday against the Bills, though it's a game with no playoff seeding implications for the Patriots.

Vereen (ankle) carried six times for 38 yards and caught one pass for 12 yards in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Jets.

Meanwhile, Jonas Gray carried six times for five yards and a TD, while Brandon Bolden carried five times for 32 yards in the game. With LeGarrette Blount out, the Patriots went with a committee approach on Sunday, with Vereen's modest impact in the passing game of late continuing to hamper his fantasy upside.

Vereen (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

With LeGarrette Blount out, Jonas Gray is in line to serve as the Patriots' top power back in Week 16, with Vereen also a candidate to see some added carries on Sunday. Vereen's fantasy upside continues to hinge on his usage in the Patriots' passing game, an area in which he has been used sporadically over his past three games - a span in which he has combined for five catches 68 yards -- though on Sunday he could see a few more looks on that front, with target-gobbling wideout Julian Edelman inactive.

Vereen (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, the Patriots' official site reports.

Vereen is one of 12 New England players to draw a questionable designation this week, though what sort of workload he might see Sunday (after recording six carries for five yards with a TD and catching one pass for 12 yards in Week 15) is presumably more of a question mark than his actual availability for this weekend's tilt.

Vereen (ankle) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, the Patriots' official site reports.

Of the 12 Patriots listed as limited Wednesday, we suspect that Vereen is among those whose Week 16 status is actually closer to probable than questionable. We'll continue to track the running back's stats as Sunday's game against the Jets approaches, in any case.

Vereen carried six times for five yards and a TD and caught one pass for 12 yards in Sunday's 41-13 win over the Dolphins.

The TD salvaged the day for Vereen from a fantasy perspective, but with Jonas Gray (11 carries for 62 yards) and LeGarrette Blount (eight carries for 17 yards) also in the team's backfield mix, Vereen figures to be a hit-or-miss option down the stretch, given his sporadic involvement in the Patriots' passing game of late.

Vereen (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

With LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray (along with Brandon Bolden to a lesser extent) also in the mix for carries, Vereen's fantasy utility continues to hinge on his usage in the Patriots' passing game, an area in which he has been relatively quiet over the team's last two games, in which Vereen has combined for four catches for 56 yards.
