The Saints have placed RB Shane Vereen on IR. He reportedly injured his hand in Thursday night's preseason finale. The 29-year-old mustered just 3.1 yards per carry and 4.6 yards per catch this preseason. New Orleans will run with Alvin Kamara, Jonathan Williams and Boston Scott atop the RB depth chart to open the season.

The Saints have signed RB Shane Vereen. The 29-year-old racked up 44 catches for the Giants last year, although he averaged just 5.8 yards per catch. He also has 47-, 52- and 59-catch campaigns on his resume. New Orleans has now added Vereen and Terrance West to a backfield that also includes Trey Edmunds, Jonathan Williams and Boston Scott behind Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. There's early-season opportunity with Ingram suspended for the first 4 games, but Vereen seemingly has an overlapping skill set with Kamara. He's not worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues right now.

Giants RB Shane Vereen (calf) isn't listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but it looks like that was precautionary. Vereen remains just a desperation PPR play for this weekend's game against the Bucs. He has 14 catches on 15 targets through 3 games -- but just 7 carries.

Giants RB Shane Vereen missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday with a calf injury. It looks like he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Bucs. Ditto for RB Orleans Darkwa, who's been sidelined this week with a back problem. If both guys are out, New York would be down to RBs Paul Perkins and Wayne Gallman.

Giants RB Shane Vereen re-tore his tricep in Sunday's win over the Lions. It's been a rough season for the 27-year-old. He 1st tore the tricep in Week 3, suffered a concussion in his return in Week 14 and then tore the tricep again yesterday. Vereen is done for the season, leaving Rashad Jennings, Paul Perkins and Bobby Rainey in New York's backfield.
