The New York Giants seemingly are heading into their quick turnaround game with the Philadelphia Eagles short-handed.
Coach Ben McAdoo disclosed Monday evening that third-down back Shane Vereen reinjured his triceps in his second game back after tearing the muscle in the third week of the season and having surgery.
"It's unfortunate," the rookie coach said. "He worked his tail off to get back to where he was, and I am disappointed for Shane."

McAdoo did not know if Vereen would require surgery again, and he was not willing to say the six-year veteran would miss the rest of the season. Bobby Rainey seems likely to move into the third down, pass-catching role if Vereen is unable to play at any point.
