With a pair of rushes for 14 yards, including one for 12 yards, Taylor matched his carry count on the season. Active for the fifth time in six games, Taylor has been afforded just nine offensive snaps this season, as special teams is his domain with 99 snaps in that realm to date. Expect garbage time to be the extent of his work with the offense as long as the top two running backs read David Johnson and Andre Ellington.
A bruised knee forced Taylor to the sideline in Week 1. With limited practice sessions in advance of Sunday's game, though, Taylor is in line to handle his typical workload on special teams.
Taylor was limited in practice all week, making his questionable status fairly predictable. He's the team's No. 4 option at tail back, making it unlikely he has any fantasy impact even if he's active for the game.
The Cardinals can't be blamed for sitting out their fourth running back, especially if he's unable to handle his typical duties on special teams. With Taylor in street clothes, the Cardinals will rely upon the RB trio of David Johnson, Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington.
Taylor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Patriots.
After being sidelined Wednesday, Taylor was limited in practice Thursday, which continued Friday. His value remains in the special teams department if he is able to take the field Sunday.
