Taliaferro (hamstring) could get a look in the fullback/H-back role vacated by Kyle Juszczyk, The Baltimore Sun reports. Taliaferro seems to be buried on the depth chart at running back, leaving him with no clear path to the final roster unless injuries hit the Baltimore backfield hard during training camp. It would thus make sense to at least give the 225-pounder a look at fullback/H-Back, which along with work on special teams might give him a real shot at making the roster. A 2014 fourth-round selection, Taliaferro has flashed some promise as a power runner when given the opportunity, but lower-body injuries cut each of his three professional seasons short. While last season's hamstring injury probably won't linger into this season, it's a stretch to think Taliaferro can actually replace Kyle Juszczyk, who parlayed his versatility into a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers. Even if there's little reason to believe Taliaferro can match Juszczyk's contributions as a lead blocker or pass catcher, it is possible a poor approximation could be enough to warrant one of the final roster spots.
The Ravens placed Taliaferro (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. For the third consecutive season, Taliaferro will be a member of the Ravens' IR list. On this occasion, he managed just three appearances on the campaign due to his placement on the PUP list at the start of the season with a foot injury and his current bout with a hamstring concern.
Taliaferro (thigh) is ruled out of Monday night's game against the Patriots, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports. Taliaferro wasn't at practice again this week and will now miss his fourth straight game. Consequently, the Ravens' backfield duties will continue to be handled by a trio of Terrance West, Kenneth Dixon and Javorius Allen.
Taliaferro (thigh) did not practice on Friday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports. Taliaferro hasn't officially been ruled out for Monday's game against New England but it's unlikely that he's able to play. Look for Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon to handle the majority of Baltimore's running back duties once again.
Taliaferro (thigh) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports. Taliaferro has missed the last three games with the thigh issue and being a non-participant this late in the week is surely not encouraging for his status on Sunday. Regardless of whether the tailback is made active or not, however, Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon would still lead the Ravens' rushing attack.
