Report: Pats’ Vereen to miss time with wrist injury

Updated: September 9, 2013

(Sports Network) – New England Patriots running back Shane Vereen will
reportedly be sidelined a few weeks after breaking a small bone in his wrist.

According to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, Vereen suffered the injury during the
first play of Sunday’s season-opening 23-21 win at Buffalo. Vereen totaled 101
yards on 14 carries and added 58 yards on seven receptions, but Glazer
reported that Vereen experienced numbness after the game as the bone sat on
the nerve.

Vereen is scheduled to have surgery Monday.
