Packers' Patrick Taylor: Takes four carries as backup
Taylor had four carries for 11 yards in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Vikings.
There was talk that another player or two could fill the backup role behind AJ Dillon with starting running back Aaron Jones (knee) inactive for Week 11, but it was Taylor who wound up filling the spot. While Taylor set new career bests in both carries and rushing yards, he was only on the field for 15 snaps, and his four touches paled in comparison to Dillon's 17. Jones has not been ruled out for Week 12, but it seems likely the Packers will hold him out with a bye on the schedule the following week. As such, Taylor figures to handle the backup duties -- which will likely remain minimal -- for another game.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Patrick Taylor: May not handle backup role Week 11
Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that Taylor will need to be ready for the No. 2 running back role while Aaron Jones (knee) is unavailable, but the coach also suggested the Packers may look at other options for backup duties behind fill-in starter AJ Dillon, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
With Jones expected to miss only a week or two, LaFleur likely is referring to a potential practice squad promotion to challenge Taylor, rather than bringing in a free agent from outside the organization. The Packers have Ryquell Armstead and Kerrith Whyte on their practice squad, while Taylor has been active as the No. 3 back ever since Kylin Hill suffered an ACL tear Week 8. The No. 3 role wasn't expected to come with any work outside of garbage time, but Taylor took two carries for seven yards after Jones made an early exit from Sunday's 17-0 win over the Seahawks. With that in mind, Taylor is the most likely candidate to handle No. 2 duties Sunday against Minnesota, though it may not come with many touches behind Dillon.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Patrick Taylor: Pressed into duty
Taylor had two carries for seven yards in Sunday's 17-0 victory over the Seahawks.
Taylor has been with the Packers since signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2020, but he spent his entire rookie season on the non-football injury list and was on the practice squad for the first eight weeks of the current campaign. He was promoted to the active roster prior to Week 9 after fellow running back Kylin Hill (knee) landed on injured reserve, and he finally got a chance to take his first NFL carries after another running back -- Aaron Jones -- went down with a knee injury in Sunday's contest. Taylor could get more work in the near future, as per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Jones is expected to miss 1-2 weeks of action. However, AJ Dillon figures to handle the bulk of the backfield duties until Jones is ready to return.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Patrick Taylor: Signs with Packers
Taylor signed a contract with the Packers on Thursday.
Taylor was waived by Green Bay at the end of August and has spent time on the team's practice squad to begin the regular season.

Patrick Taylor: Waived by Packers
Taylor was waived by the Packers on Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Taylor worked as the Packers' fourth running back during training camp, but the team elected to keep only three players at his position, so there was not room for him on the roster. He has been with the Packers since signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in April of 2020, and that could help him sew up a spot on the team's practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Patrick Taylor: Remains fourth on depth chart
Taylor had eight carries for 48 yards and one reception for seven yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans. He also lost a fumble in the contest.
Taylor was efficient when he touched the ball, but the fumble certainly didn't help his chances of securing a roster spot, and the running back directly ahead of him on the depth chart -- Kylin Hill -- likely locked himself into the No. 3 spot on the depth chart in Saturday's game. With the Packers likely keeping only three running backs, Taylor is on the outside looking in with one preseason game to go.... See More ... See Less
