Shane Vereen has wrist surgery, to miss a "few weeks"
Vereen finished the game with 101 rushing yards and seven catches for 58 yards, but it wasn't all good news for Vereen.
Per Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, Vereen broke a small bone in his wrist on the first play and had surgery earlier today, which will keep him out of the lineup for a "few weeks."
Although Vereen played through the injury on Sunday, he experienced numbness after the game.
If it weren't for Vereen's injury, I would have expected Ridley to play a secondary role on Thursday Night Football against the Jets. With Vereen out, however, I would expect Ridley to get another shot at being the featured guy provided he protects the football, of course.
The Jets limited second-year rusher Doug Martin to only 2.7 yards per carry (24 attempts for 65 yards) yesterday.
