Shane Vereen did not suit up against the Titans.
Running back Shane Vereen's performance on Sunday struck resemblance to 2011—he didn't play.
The 2011 second-round pick was ruled out with a foot injury, according to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe.
A young rusher with gifted athletic abilities, Vereen hasn't been able to get on the field much during his time in New England. Entering his second NFL season, the former California Golden Bear has seen action in just five regular-season games.
With Stevan Ridley emerging as the No. 1 back, Vereen's role is undefined at this point. The train is leaving the station, regardless of whether or not Vereen is on board.
