Taylor signed a one-year contract Wednesday with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Taylor spent the last four seasons with the Lions, and worked in a starting role along the defensive line in 2016. He was a serviceable contributor with 28 tackles and 4.5 sacks, but Taylor will have a tougher path to seeing snaps with the Giants, as Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon are locked into starting roles at the two end spots.
Taylor (ankle) is active for Sunday's divisional matchup with the Bears. Taylor was listed as questionable in Friday's injury report but will give it a go on Sunday as he hopes to avoid aggravating an ankle injury. The defensive end played through the injury last week, notching one tackle while taking the field for 45 snaps. Look for a similar snap count this week with Brandon Copeland prepared to fill in at any moment.
Taylor (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Packers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Taylor only practiced once during the week, but the Lions may require him to play a full snap count Sunday with Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) expected to miss at least a few games. Through his first two games, Taylor has been able to make an impact at the defensive end spot opposite Ansah, logging eight tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Taylor (ankle) returned to practice on Friday after missing Thursday's practice with an ankle injury, MLive.com reports. It appears Taylor avoided structural damage in his ankle and, consequently, he shouldn't miss any time moving forward. The South Carolina product has racked up 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks thus far into the season, but is not expected to have stud DE Ezekiel Ansah bookending the opposite side of the defensive line in the Lions' Week 3 matchup against the Packers, potentially allowing Green Bay blockers to devote more attention his way than Detroit's previous two opponents were able to.
Taylor sacked Marcus Mariota 1.5 times while notching seven tackles Sunday against the Titans. Taylor now has 13 tackles along with 1.5 sacks in his two games to start the season. Although he's accomplished little in his first two years in the league, he could thrive across from Ziggy Ansah (ankle), even though Ansah could miss some time with an ankle injury.
