Taylor (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams. Dante Pettis (knee) is the lone 49ers wideout unavailable Sunday after both Taylor and Pierre Garcon (shoulder/knee) received clearance to suit up following pregame workouts. Taylor, who sat out for the first time all season in the Week 6 loss to the Packers, should check back in as the 49ers' primary slot man Sunday. The second-year player turned in his best outing of the season in his last appearance Oct. 7 against the Cardinals, reeling in seven of eight targets for 61 yards and a touchdown.
Taylor (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Taylor was listed as doubtful with the injury ahead of the 49ers' Week 6 matchup with the Packers before ultimately being inactive for the contest, so the fact that he's considered questionable for Week 7 suggests he's taken a step forward in his recovery from the back injury. If cleared to suit up Sunday, Taylor would likely retain his usual duties in the slot, where he forged a quality connection with quarterback C.J. Beathard his last time out. In the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, Taylor set season highs across the board with seven catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on eight targets.
Taylor (back) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. This is a step in the right direction after Taylor was held out of practice all last week and listed as doubtful before being inactive for Monday's 33-30 loss to the Packers. Kendrick Bourne filled in as San Francisco's No. 3 wide receiver, catching one of three targets for 22 yards. The role doesn't offer much promise with franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) out for the season.
Taylor (back) is inactive for Monday's contest in Green Bay. This was more or less a formality after Taylor didn't practice all week and was given a 'doubtful' tag for Monday's game. The 49ers will be down two wide receivers -- also, Dante Pettis (knee) -- which should give Kendrick Bourne, Victor Bolden and Richie James an opportunity to receive looks behind starters Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon.
Taylor (back) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against Green Bay, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Taylor was a non-participant for the third consecutive day, limiting any optimism of his availability for Monday. The 49ers' depth at wide receiver could be tested with Pierre Garcon (shoulder/knee) listed as questionable and Dante Pettis (knee) ruled out. Richie James and Kendrick Bourne could see increased snaps due to the injuries.
