The New England Patriots have placed Shane Vereen onto the IR list with the designation to return and the earliest he will be back on the roster is after the Patriots BYE in week 10. That is another tough blow for the New England Patriots offense.
Stevan Ridley will have to be counted on again. Ridley likely will be given another shot to be the main back, but he better hold onto that football. The rest of the league knows that he will put the ball on the ground and they will all be ripping away.
What do we expect out of Brady? The same thing that we always expect. Greatness.
