Report: Patriots to activate RB Vereen

The SportsXchange

The New England Patriots will activate running back Shane Vereen for Monday night's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to ESPN.

Vereen has been out with a broken wrist he sustained during the Patriots' season opener against the Buffalo Bills.

The third-year running back was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return after running for a career-high 101 yards in the win. He returned to practice in late October.

Vereen is also one of the team's most effective receivers out of the backfield.
