It looked to be a groin pull.
I'll comment on the person who said "looks to be injury prone". Not really the case here, groin pulls usually happen during the early part of the season especially with speed guys, since vereen was out for 8 + weeks, this is his early season and its "just one of those thing type injury really nothing you can do and depending on the severity he will not miss any time or will miss one game. If anyone has had one they really "stink" for the first few days, then its tender after that. Good news is after 2 weeks of stretching you really are back to normal.
Are you suggesting that Amendola's groin pull is not yet another indication of what a total disaster of a signing he is <insert dripping sarcasm here>? I mean his first game that mattered in a Pats uniform and he gets one.
I don't consider either groin injury an indicator of either player's predisposition to injury. Either one may be 'injury prone' but as far as I'm concerned the jury's still out.
It doesn't matter with some people, he will start hearing the label is what I am saying. It is inevitable. Some people simply do get injured more often than others durig the given opportunity time.
I do not think that Vereen is injury prone, nor do I like the term or the implications behind it. I just think it will be pumped up in talk radio if we don't see him in the next game. So long as we have him for the playoffs, I am happy.
Point taken and to be clear my sarcasm wasn't directed to you so much as it was to the seemingly unrelenting onslaught whereby that label is cast about. And I agree in your assessment with respect to the inevitability of that mantle being hung upon him.
