Backup quarterback Ryan Nassib also landed on IR with an elbow injury.
Vereen, 27, had his season derailed by the triceps he originally tore in his left arm during a Week 3 loss to the Eagles. He was placed on IR and later activated prior to a Week 14 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. He left that game early with a concussion but returned for Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions.
Vereen could be seen with his left arm dangling after he lunged for a fourth-quarter pass against the Lions. He also fumbled earlier in the contest near the goal line after being sandwiched by a pair of Lions defenders near the goal line. Bobby Rainey should see time as the team's pass catching back. Paul Perkins is trending up and split carries with Rashad Jennings last week, the first time the two split the workload. They should continue to see the bulk of the workload running the ball.
