Back to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Taylor reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday.

Taylor was elevated for the second straight week from Green Bay's practice squad, garnering one carry for a yard while operating as the primary backup to AJ Dillon in the Packers' 25-24 loss to Atlanta. If Aaron Jones (hamstring) can't go again in Week 3 versus New Orleans, it's possible Taylor gets elevated again.

Shares backup duties in Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Taylor had one carry for one yard in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Falcons.

Taylor and Emanuel Wilson split the snaps behind A.J. Dillon with starting running back Aaron Jones (hamstring) sidelined in Week 2, but Dillon was the only player among the bunch to do anything of note. The Packers figure to continue using a similar strategy if Jones misses more time, but if the starter returns in Week 3, Taylor will find himself back in a bit role.

Promoted to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-16

The Packers elevated Taylor to the active roster Saturday.

Taylor has now been promoted to the active roster in consecutive weeks to kick off the year. He tallied five carries for 22 yards in the team's 38-20 season opening victory over the Bears as the No. 3 back. If Aaron Jones (hamstring) does not get the green light, Taylor could be in line for a bigger workload than usual behind AJ Dillon in the backfield.

Returns to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Taylor reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday.

Taylor was elevated to the active roster to operate as the Packers' third running back in their 38-20 win over the Bears in Week 1, recording five carries for 22 yards while playing seven offensive snaps. If Aaron Jones (hamstring) is unable to play Sunday in Atlanta, it's possible that Taylor is elevated from the practice squad for a second straight week.

Opens as third running back

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Taylor had five carries for 22 yards in Sunday's 38-20 victory over the Bears.

Taylor was beaten out for a spot on Green Bay's 53-man roster by fellow running back Emanuel Wilson, but it appears that had more to do with keeping Wilson off waivers, as Taylor worked as Green Bay's third running back in Week 1. Taylor did not take a carry until the game was out of question on the scoreboard, but he was effective with his opportunities. Starting running back Aaron Jones shined in Sunday's game but injured his hamstring, and Jones' backup, A.J. Dillon, struggled to get much going. As such, Taylor -- at least to some degree -- is on the fantasy radar heading into Week 2.

Elevated to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-09

They Packers have elevated Taylor to their active roster ahead of Sunday's season opening game in Chicago.

Taylor's addition to Green Bay's 53-man roster means he will be backing up Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon and Emanuel Wilson at running back. While his most likely path to contribution would be via special teams, he could see a few plays in the backfield at any point.

Back with practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-30

Taylor was picked up by the Packers' practice squad Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Taylor was competing for the No. 3 running back role on Green Bay's depth chart during training camp, but the team ended up going with Emanuel Wilson behind staples Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. The 25-year-old has bounced back and forth between the Packers' practice squad and active roster the previous two seasons and it is looking like deja vu heading into his third season.

Let go by Green Bay

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-29

The Packers waived Taylor on Tuesday, Wes Hodklewlcz of the team's official site reports.

Taylor was the third running back to enter Saturday's preseason finale against the Seahawks and ultimately lost out on the No. 3 running back spot to rookie UDFA Emanuel Wilson. Taylor had limited opportunities in 2022, tallying just 10 carries for 31 yards in 14 games while operating behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. He'll look to land elsewhere -- likely on a practice squad -- once he clears waivers.

Effective in final exhibition

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-26

Taylor had six carries for 24 yards and one reception for eight yards in Saturday's 19-15 preseason victory over the Seahawks.

Taylor was the third Packers running back to enter Saturday's contest, so it's possible he has fallen behind fellow running back Emanuel Wilson on the depth chart. However, Green Bay may have simply wanted to give Wilson some work with the first team. The two are the frontrunners to be Green Bay's No. 3 running back, though neither is guaranteed a roster spot, as the Packers broke camp with only two active running backs in 2022.
