Taylor rushed 21 times for 78 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round loss to the Bills. He added two catches for six yards on four targets. Taylor gave the Colts a 10-7 lead with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the second quarter but lost three yards on a dubious 3rd-and-goal toss play from the one-yard line later in the quarter on a drive that ended without points following an incomplete pass on the ensuing play. The rookie second-round pick established himself as the Colts' clear lead back down the stretch, and Taylor is positioned to finish among the league's rushing leaders next season if he can maintain that role while running behind one of the league's best offensive lines.
Taylor (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation for Saturday's playoff game against the Bills. Though Taylor -- who racked up 30 carries for 253 yards and two TDs in Week 17 -- was listed as a limited practice participant this week, he previously indicated that he'd be ready to roll versus the Bills and his final injury designation for Wild-Card Weekend confirms that.
Taylor (shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion this week, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Though Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis relays that Taylor -- who logged 30 carries for 253 yards and two TDs in Week 17 -- sported a red (non-contact) jersey at practice Thursday, the running back previously indicated that he'd be "ready to roll" versus the Bills, a notion that could be confirmed by Indy's final injury report for Wild-Card Weekend.
Taylor (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report. Despite the listing, Taylor -- who logged a career-high 31 touches in the Week 17 win over Jacksonville -- isn't concerned about his status for Saturday's playoff opener against the Bills, according to Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Taylor closed the regular season with a flurry, racking up 837 yards from scrimmage and eight touchdowns over the Colts' final six games.
Taylor (shoulder) was listed as limited on Tuesday's practice estimate. Taylor was on the field for 55 of the Colts' 67 snaps on offense in this past Sunday's win over the Jaguars, en route to rushing 30 times for 253 yards and two TDs. Though his listed limitations Tuesday indicate that Taylor may have come out of the contest banged up, so far there's nothing to suggest that the Colts' top back is in any danger of missing Saturday's playoff opener against the Bills.
