Giants RB Orleans Darkwa on IR; RB Shane Vereen could return

ESPN - [Full Article]

The league year began for New York Giants running back Orleans Darkwa with an injured leg. It ended because of a related problem to the leg.

Darkwa was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with the return of running back Shane Vereen (triceps) on the horizon. Vereen could be back as early as next week to play against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: 

Vereen may be a forgotten player in your league as reports came out early after his injury he was done for the year. But a possible return next week may be a good enough reason to take a shot on him if he's on your wire, especially in PPR leagues. Vereen was averaging about 13 touches in his only three games of the season, and that actually included over 10 carries a game.
