According to the Boston Globe, Patriots running back Shane Vereen is eligible to be activated from short-term injured reserve this week.
Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is looking forward to Vereen’s return.
“As soon as he’s ready and able to help us and we are able to play him, certainly he will have a role in the game,” McDaniels said. “He definitely did make a big impact in Game 1.
“I don’t know if we can expect him to do that right off the bat in his first game back, whenever that is, [but] we’ll look forward to having him back.”
