Giants activate RB Shane Vereen ahead of showdown vs. Cowboys

Shane Vereen is back to face the ‘Boys.

The Giants activated their most versatile running back from injured reserve on Saturday to make his first appearance Sunday night at MetLife Stadium since tearing his triceps in Week 3 against Washington.

The Giants (8-4) have the NFL’s second-worst rushing attack (77.5 yards per game) heading into their rematch with the first-place Dallas Cowboys (11-1). Dallas has won 11 in a row behind the league’s second-best rush offense (155.8 yards per game).

Vereen is most valuable as a receiving option. He caught 59 passes for 494 yards and four TDs last season in his first year as a Giant, second on the team in catches behind only Odell Beckham Jr. (96).

The Giants terminated the contract of offensive lineman Adam Gettis to make room for Vereen on the active roster.
