New York Jets @ New England Patriots – Thursday 8:30, 72 Degrees and Cloudy
New England – Bad break (literally) for Patriots’ RB Shane Vereen, who suffered an injury to his wrist during Sunday’s win over Buffalo. According to numerous reports, including the Boston Herald, Vereen broke a bone in his hand and will miss “a few weeks” following surgery to stabilize the fracture. However, other reports did mention Vereen suffering a dislocation, which is when a bone is actually displaced from it’s anatomical position, but doesn’t always include a fracture. The dislocation would be a more precarious situation, as stabilizing a dislocated bone is much trickier than stabilizing a run of the mill fracture. Regardless, Vereen is slated to miss at least 3-4 weeks at a minimum and will likely play with either a soft cast or brace on the hand once he returns. This is good news for Stevan Ridley owners, who was likely on his way to the doghouse had it not been for this injury. Look for Leon Washington and Brandon Bolden to be called on to fill Vereen’s important 3rd down role.
In other Patriots injury news, Zach Sudfeld capped off a very disappointing debut with a hamstring injury while Danny Amendola‘s gutsy performance during week 1 overshadowed the fact that he re-injured his already strained groin. No word yet on both of their availabilities, but since they’re both muscle strains (of unknown severity) and the Patriots are on a short week, there is always the possibility that both miss this week’s game. Expect both of these guys to be game time decisions, as they were both limited in practice on Monday. My money is on Amendola playing considering how short-handed the WR corp already is, but keep an eye on this situation as it unfolds.
*UPDATE* Amendola and Bolden are both inactive for Week 2.
New York – Wide receiver / punt returner Kerley was replaced by Ben Obomanu on the active roster and should see playing time as the fifth man in the wide receiver depth chart for the Jets.
