Taylor completed 16 of 30 passes for 208 yards across two different games in the 2020 season. The veteran really only played one game, starting the season opener before a medical accident left Taylor with a punctured lung, which forced rookie Justin Herbert into the starting lineup. The 2020 No. 6 overall pick ran off with the job from there, eventually setting a number of rookie passing records en route to being a frontrunner for the Rookie of the Year award. With Taylor set to enter unrestricted free agency this offseason, the 31-year-old could try to catch on with another team that may give him an opportunity at a starting job.
Taylor (ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets. The veteran was considered questionable with the injury to his ribs, but he'll be suiting up for Sunday's contest. Taylor will continue to serve as the backup to starter Justin Herbert.
Taylor (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Taylor managed to suit up as Los Angeles' No. 2 quarterback Week 10 despite his lingering ribs injury, but he can't be considered a lock to take the field against the Jets. Easton Stick will slot in as the backup to Justin Herbert if Taylor can't go.
Taylor was a nonparticipant at Wednesday's practice due to a rib injury, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. Taylor was able to suit up behind starting QB Justin Herbert for last Sunday's game against the Raiders, but he appears to still be battling the rib issue that forced him to miss games early in the season. The veteran will look to get healthy, but it appears he'll only have a chance to see the field again this season with an injury or poor play from Herbert. If Taylor misses Week 11, Easton Stick would assume backup duties for the contest.
Coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Friday that Taylor (chest) will back up Justin Herbert against the Raiders on Sunday, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. Taylor was inactive for the past two games despite practicing fully, but he'll finally be active again in this battle of west coast teams. He's unlikely to see the field barring an injury to Herbert, as the rookie has hit the ground running as a starter.
