News: Vereen was on the field for 7-of-91 of the Patriots' snaps on offense in Friday's preseason contest against the Eagles, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: While Vereen didn't record a carry in his limited workload Friday, he did notch two catches for 21 yards in the contest. With LeGarrette Blount no longer in the Patriots' backfield mix, Vereen is in line to work this season in tandem with Stevan Ridley and rookie James White. Vereen's projected role as a pass catcher out of the backfield puts him on track to be a productive PPR option, but it remains to be seen how big a share of the team's carries he'll see. While Ridley is probably the best suited among the team's RB options to handle early-down work, he's had issues with fumbles. If they persist, Vereen and/or White would presumably be in a position to receive added touches in the New England offense.
