Giants lose RB Shane Vereen (tricep) for season

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

The New York Giants lost more than the game against Washington on Sunday. Running back Shane Vereen is out for the season with a triceps injury that requires surgery, the team announced on Monday afternoon.

Vereen is the team's passing-down back, and he assumed feature duties on Sunday in the absence of Rashad Jennings, who missed the game with an injury of his own. He was off to an excellent start to the season, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and catching eight passes for 75 yards as well.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's a big loss for the passing game, but the good news is the team is fairly deep at RB. Orleans Darkwa, rookie fifth-rounder Paul Perkins and Bobby Rainey could all help to fill the void along with starter Rashad Jennings.
