The running back spent two months on injured reserve due to a torn triceps. He returned in Week 14, but re-tore his triceps Sunday in the Giants' Week 15 win against the Detroit Lions. Vereen, 27, is due $3.15 million, with a $500,000 roster bonus next season. He is a free agent in 2018.
"Shane re-injured his triceps. It's unfortunate. He worked his tail off to get back to where he was." - Coach McAdoo on Shane Vereen— New York Giants (@Giants) December 19, 2016

Not good news on #Giants RB Shane Vereen. I'm told he did re-injure his triceps, per source.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) December 19, 2016
He can't catch a break.
