Patriots RB Shane Vereen (illness, questionable) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Week 8. We’re not worried about Vereen’s status, though it will be something to monitor on Sunday morning when inactives are released. If he can’t play (not likely), then Jonas Gray, Brandon Bolden and James White would divvy up the touches in the Patriot backfield. It wouldn’t be an attractive situation, though it would likely be Gray leading the team in carries in that scenario since he ran ahead of Bolden and White last week. Anything can happen with HC Bill Belichick calling the shots. If Vereen is active, he’s locked in as a high-end RB2 in a mediocre matchup against the Bears.

Bears TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. Bennett is ready to go for a nice matchup with the Patriots.

Boston Herald - [Full Article]

Running back Shane Vereen was not present for today's practice due to an illness, according to a source. It's the first time he missed a practice since the start of training camp, but there's no worry from Gillette Stadium because he was sick and not injured.

Fantasy Impact:

Vereen was surprisingly absent from Friday's practice, but it sounds as if he came down with the flu. He should be fine to face the Bears in Week 8.
