Ahead of the Giants' most important test of the season, they are receiving some much needed help at the running back position.
The former Patriots running back returned to practice last week after being placed on injured reserve following Week 3 with a triceps injury. Coach Ben McAdoo has been coy this week about how and if the Giants will use Vereen against Dallas, only saying that the back has had a "good, productive week."
The Giants are 31st in the league in time of possession (26:50), in part due to their inability to convert on third downs (28th, 35 percent). A notorious third-down back, Vereen should factor heavily into McAdoo's playcalling.
