NFL  > New England Patriots  > Why no word about your 2nd round pick?

Shane Vereen was a second round pick of New England in the 2011 draft. Yet he has yet to play a single down in preseason. He must be injured yet I don't remember hearing a single word. You do not draft a person #2 and not play him in preseason without a good reason.

Stevan Ridley has already beat him out. Vereen might not even be on the 53.
Vereens Hurt but i forget what happened to him.

MY GUESS at the Depth chart
Law Firm
Woodhead
Ridley
Faulk- 3rd Down
Morris-FB

I don't know where Vereen Fits, unless they cut Faulk and/or Morris but im not sure if they do that cause they're veteran leaders...

I doubt that a team would cut a 2nd round rookie player due to injury.

He'll most likely go on IR.

Vereen has been practicing. Bill didn't put him in the game Sat. His time will come.

When's Haynesworth going to play? When's Ocho going to catch a ball? Is Welker's neck okay? Is Brady going to get his skills back? And most importantly, CAN WE BEAT THE JETS?!

Hamstring Injury: The second-round pick out of California returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since Aug. 3, and has yet to appear in a preseason game because of the injury.
