Patriots RB Shane Vereen Placed On IR With Designation To Return

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.

The Patriots will be going into the game on Thursday without Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, Shane Vereen and Zach Sudfeld. Sounds like a whole lot of mess for Tom Brady to work with.

What do we expect out of Brady? The same thing that we always expect. Greatness.
