Vereen had five carries for 11 yards and four catches for 27 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen's role had shrunk the last few games, but he saw more snaps Sunday and got back involved as a pass catcher. As a third-down back, his ceiling is limited, especially in this offense.

Vereen caught three of four targets for 14 yards Sunday against the Rams. He did not record a single carry.

EDGE Analysis

That Vereen would be used so sparingly for the third straight contest despite game flow favoring the passing game does not bode well for his role in the offense. There's no reason to roster him except in leagues of oceanic depth.

Vereen had two carries for four yards and caught three of his four targets for two yards against the Seahawks Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

It's been two straight games that Vereen, despite the team's dearth of receiving options, hasn't been a factor. You'd think with Eli Manning checking it down so much Vereen would have a bigger role, but so far that hasn't happened.

Vereen had one carry for four yards, but did not receive a single target all game in Denver Sunday night.

EDGE Analysis

With the Broncos favored by 13 points before kickoff, this figured to be a game-flow favorable to Vereen, but the Giants not only had the lead all game, they ran effectively behind Orleans Darkwa. Vereen is still the team's third-down back, and the Giants still lack playmakers out wide, so he's likely to produce in games where the team finds itself at a deficit, and Sunday's performance notwithstanding, those games are coming.

Vereen nabbed four passes of five targets for 27 yards and added 18 yards on four carries in Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

The nine touches tied a season high for Vereen, but don't be surprised if that climbs in the coming weeks. Both Paul Perkins and Orleans Darkwa are on the mend and questionable to start the week with injuries. In the meantime, the Giants' receiving options are dropping like flies. Always best used as a scat-back, Vereen might be the Giants' answer to the production lost by injuries. In fact, they seem a sprained ankle away from not having much of a choice but to lean on Vereen.

Vereen had five carries for 14 yards and one catch on two targets for 11 more yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

After a busy Week 1, Vereen has seen less work as Eli Manning has elected to throw to tight end Evan Engram and possession receiver Sterling Shepard on check-downs. Vereen is still the team's third-down back, however.

Vereen (calf) will play in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen sat out the first two days of practice this week in order to give his sore calf some rest, but he was able to get in a limited practice Friday, which was apparently all he needed to do in order to play this week. Vereen averaged just 18 snaps over the last two games, and with him possibly playing at less than 100 percent Sunday, his role does not figure to expand much.

Vereen (calf) was absent from Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen's lack of participation for the second straight day of practice puts his availability up in the air for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers. He'll still have one more opportunity Friday to prove he's made progress from the calf injury before the Giants make a formal declaration on his status heading into Sunday, but Vereen looks like he could be at serious risk of sitting out for the first time all season. If that's the case, the Giants would likely make rookie Wayne Gallman active for the contest, and he could assume many of the snaps that would typically fall to Vereen on passing downs.

Vereen didn't practice Wednesday due to a calf injury.

EDGE Analysis

Both Vereen and Orleans Darkwa (back) emerged from Sunday's loss at Philadelphia with injuries, which have forced both to focus on rehab rather than practice to begin Week 4 prep. On the season, Vereen trails Paul Perkins, 79-67, in offensive snap count, but the former is the only Giants running back to surpass 100 yards from scrimmage (129, to be exact) through three games. With multiple ailments afflicting the backfield, it remains to be seen how the RB reps will break down Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Vereen had one carry for five yards and two catches for 18 yards Sunday against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen simply wasn't especially involved in the game plan, and this despite a come-from-behind game-flow that should have suited him. He's in no danger of losing his third-down role, however, but don't expect many carries.
