Taylor (lower leg) played in Monday's game against the Browns.
Taylor only played in nine snaps Monday night, and it's unclear whether that's a product of a cautious post-injury approach, or if it's due to his long-shot chances of making the roster. Nevertheless, he's healthy enough to play so expect to see him in upcoming preseason games.
Taylor missed a second consecutive practice Wednesday due to soreness in his lower leg, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports.
This doesn't sound like a serious issue in the slightest, so Taylor should be back in the fold sooner rather than later.
Taylor (undisclosed) was sore Tuesday and sat out of practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Taylor will have to continue battling for playing time, but he played well enough last season to win some snaps by default. The University of South Carolina product logged 28 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 2016. This injury seems pretty minor, so don't expect Taylor to stay sidelined too long.
Taylor spent the last four seasons with the Lions, and worked in a starting role along the defensive line in 2016. He was a serviceable contributor with 28 tackles and 4.5 sacks, but Taylor will have a tougher path to seeing snaps with the Giants, as Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon are locked into starting roles at the two end spots.
Taylor was listed as questionable in Friday's injury report but will give it a go on Sunday as he hopes to avoid aggravating an ankle injury. The defensive end played through the injury last week, notching one tackle while taking the field for 45 snaps. Look for a similar snap count this week, with Brandon Copeland prepared to fill in at any moment.
