The running back was placed on injured reserve with a triceps injury, the team announced, which he re-injured this past Sunday after missing nine games with a torn triceps he suffered in late September.
Vereen finished the season with 33 rushing attempts and 11 receptions for 252 yards from scrimmage in five games.
The Giants also placed backup quarterback Ryan Nassib (elbow) on IR, resulting in Josh Johnson being elevated to the No. 2 spot behind Eli Manning. The Giants promoted linebacker Ishaq Williams from the practice squad and signed running back George Winn as the corresponding moves to fill their roster.
Here are some other injuries we are tracking on Tuesday:
Left tackle Joe Thomas (knee), tight end Randall Telfer (ankle) and defensive lineman Stephen Paea (unknown) are all not participating in Browns practice.
- Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that outside linebacker Nick Perry (hand) is "improving. Hope he can do some things tomorrow at practice." Perry has missed the past two games.
- Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans did not practice, per the Tampa Bay Times. Evans was seen working on the side, however, so it might be precautionary for the stud wideout.
- Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters that punter Jon Ryan is still in concussion protocol, but he doesn't expect the team to have to sign a new punter.
Carroll also said that he's hoping running back C.J. Prosise (shoulder) will be back for the playoffs based off of his health updates, however defensive end Damontre Moore (foot) will be placed on injured reserve.
- While Rams quarterback Jared Goff has not yet cleared all stages of the concussion protocol, interim head coach John Fassel said the rookie was able to participate in full in Tuesday's practice, according to the team.
