Patriots RB Shane Vereen suffers groin injury in week 16 win

Shane Vereen @ShaneVereen34 left the field late in the first quarter with a groin injury and never returned to action in the Patriots' rout of the Ravens. Vereen was seen riding a stationary bike during the second quarter but was ruled out of the game. Stevan Ridley @StevanRidley and LaGarrette Blount were the primary running backs after Vereen's injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

It was hardly a big game, but luckily for Vereen's owners, he was able to find the endzone on a 4 yard pass before departing the game. The Pats need a win to secure a first round bye and possibly the first overall seed this week against Buffalo. Vereen is always a threat in PPR leagues, but It's unclear whether the pass catching specialist will return week 17. If Vereen can't play, the situation in the Patriots backfield is too muddy to trust any single RB in all but the deepest of leagues.
