Vereen (groin) questionable to return

By Field Yates

Patriots running back Shane Vereen left the team's Week 16 game against the Ravens and is questionable to return with a groin injury, the team announced.

Vereen pulled up following a pass route down the left sideline, leaving the game and being taken to the locker room shortly thereafter.

The third-year pro was replaced by Brandon Bolden in the team's up-tempo offensive sets.

Vereen missed eight games earlier this season after suffering a wrist injury in Week 1 against the Bills. Upon his return, he has made a significant impact, with 36 catches in five games.
