    Vereen to play on Monday?

    Patriots released Williams, which opens the spot for Vereen. He was looking great in the 1st game. Sounds like the Pats offense will be at full strenght on Monday.

    Vareen will need a couple of weeks to be at 100%, but he should still be a match-up nightmare for teams.

    Remember, he was practicing the last few weeks, but agree, he will need some time to shake some rust off. He won't get the full load if he plays Monday.

    rumor has been he has been practicing with the team for about 1 month. I expect him to hit the ground running...25-30 snaps

    I know he's been practicing with the team, but has he been getting clocked by LBs or has he been wearing that red jersey?

    Not listed as a limited participant, so it looks like he has been practicing full. I agree with karp that Shane gets a solid work load right off the bat.

    Nearly a full work load  out of the gates.

    Vereen was great week one and against the texans in the playoffs last year- that pretty much covers it!

    Just the fact that he's avaiiible makes the Panthers have to game plan for him regardless of whether he plays or not.

    Vereen's availability sure does help provide some flexibility, especially on 3rd downs.  However, I don't think he's played enough to warrant being called a match up nightmare (yet).  He hasn't earned the status of Ray Rice......or even our own Faulk.

    Watched NFC Playbook last night to see what my favorite analysts had to say about the game.  Sterling Sharpe said "Vereen is arguably the best 3rd down back in the NFL".  Wow, high praise indeed and here's hoping he can further prove that Monday night.
