Taylor (undisclosed) has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. Taylor has been a healthy scratch for four of the Patriots' last five games, including Sunday's win over the Titans. It remains to be seen if he'll be cleared to play for next Monday's game against the Bills, but unless one of the team's other backs is unavailable, Taylor figures to remain the odd man out Week 13 even if he's activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Taylor is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans. With Damien Harris (neck) and Rhamondre Stevenson (knee) both active, Brandon Bolden is in line to handle change-of-pace duties for the Patriots in Week 12, while Taylor is the odd man out of the team's backfield equation for now.
Taylor is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Falcons. With Taylor a healthy scratch Thursday, the Patriots' Week 11 backfield will be comprised of Damien Harris, who's back after a one-game absence, as well as Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden.
Taylor, who was on the field for 13 of a possible 67 snaps on offense in Sunday's 45-7 win over the Browns, carried six times for 11 yards in the contest, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Taylor, who had been a healthy scratch Weeks 8 and 9, rejoined the Patriots' backfield mix Sunday, with Damien Harris (concussion) unavailable. In the process, Taylor worked behind Rhamondre Stevenson (37 snaps, 20 carries and four catches), while Brandon Bolden recorded 18 snaps en route to logging three carries and three catches. Whether Taylor suits up for Thursday night's game against the Falcons likely hinges on Harris' status, but either way he's a hit-or-miss fantasy option, while working in a complementary role.
Taylor is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns. Taylor is back in uniform after being a healthy scratch the last couple of weeks, with Damien Harris (concussion) having been ruled out for the contest. Also in the team's Week 10 backfield mix are Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden. In that context, Taylor's workload versus Cleveland is difficult to peg, which makes him a speculative fantasy lineup option this weekend.
