The move means Vereen must miss eight weeks before he is eligible to play in a game. He was injured in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Buffalo Bills. He had a small break in his left wrist and underwent surgery on Monday, Fox Sports reported. The Patriots said he missed practice on Monday and Tuesday with a wrist injury.
Vereen rushed for a career-high 101 yards and gained 58 on seven receptions in the opener.
They also made two practice squad moves, signing defensive lineman A.J. Francis and releasing wide receiver Quentin Sims.
