Taylor (torn ACL) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Taylor was promoted from the practice squad before Week 4 and covered the slot admirably, allowing just 175 receiving yards and no touchdowns over eight games. Emmanuel Moseley could slot in at nickel corner moving forward, while Richard Sherman and Jason Verrett continue to man the outside. Taylor will aim to make a full recovery for the 2021 season.
Taylor suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's win over the Rams and will be out for the rest of the season, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
This is another big loss for the 49ers' secondary, which just got Richard Sherman back into the lineup after a 10-week stint on IR. Taylor has covered the slot since being promoted from the practice squad, and he allowed just 175 receiving yards and no touchdowns over seven games. The 30-year-old may not be fully recovered for the 2021 season. Taylor will be placed on injured reserve in the coming days.
Coach Kyle Shanahan said Sunday that Taylor (knee) is feared to have suffered a torn ACL, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The 30-year-old cornerback was forced out of Sunday's 23-20 win over the Rams with a knee injury, and it now appears that his 2020 campaign could be over. Taylor will likely undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the severity of his injury. Taylor has been covering the slot for San Francisco since being promoted from the practice squad Week 4.
Taylor suffered a knee injury and won't return to Sunday's game against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Taylor has been covering the slot since being promoted from the practice squad in Week 4. This is an unfortunate loss for the 49ers' secondary, although it's slightly easier to overcome with Richard Sherman playing his first game since Week 1. Taylor's next chance to play is Week 13 against the Bills, a Monday night game.
Taylor was promoted to the 49ers' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Taylor was added to the practice squad at the end of September and was elevated as an extra player for Week 4, and he'll now join the active roster in a longer-term capacity. The 30-year-old appeared in nine games last year for Seattle and had 22 tackles and three passes defensed.
The 49ers are expected to add Taylor to the practice squad Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Taylor spent time in San Francisco during the offseason, and he'll now rejoin the team as an emergency cornerback. If K'Waun Williams (hip) ends up unable to play against the Eagles on Sunday, Taylor could be promoted to the active roster.
Taylor was released by 49ers on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The veteran cornerback has bounced around the league, spending time with the Dolphins, Browns, Broncos, Cardinals, Falcons and Seahawks before signing with the 49ers in July. Now he'll look to sign on with a club looking for some secondary depth ahead of Week 1.
Taylor signed a one-year deal with the 49ers on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The 29-year-old cornerback has bounced around the league with four different teams since he made 29 starts for Browns in 2016 and 2017. Taylor will need to battle for a depth spot in San Francisco.
Taylor signed with the Falcons on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Taylor spent nine games with the Seahawks this season, working primarily as a slot corner and allowing 6.5 YPA. The Falcons can use the depth in their secondary after Desmond Trufant (forearm) was ruled out for the season, but it's unsettled whether Taylor will immediately play Sunday against the 49ers.
The Seahawks waived Taylor on Wednesday.
Taylor worked as the team's slot corner, allowing a 62.5 completion percentage and 6.5 YPA. Those numbers aren't bad by any measure, but the Seahawks may be comfortable with their depth in Neiko Thorpe and Akeem King. If Taylor clears waivers, he's a prime candidate for Seattle's practice squad.
Taylor is set to start at cornerback for Sunday's game against Atlanta with Tre Flowers (neck) inactive, Gregg Bell of the News Tribune reports.
Primarily used in nickel situations, Taylor will get the opportunity to start with Flowers on the shelf. The 29-year-old has seen just 107 defensive snaps this season, and has racked up nine tackles (six solo) in that span. Taylor is now set for a big workload and will catch a break with Matt Schaub expected to start for the Falcons for the injured Matt Ryan (ankle).
Coach Pete Carroll said Taylor will play the nickel spot in Sunday's game versus the Steelers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Since Ugo Amadi (shoulder) and Neiko Thorpe (hamstring) were injured in the season opener, Taylor will immediately be deployed in coverage. Taylor has familiarity with the Seahawks' system, as he spent the preseason with the team before being let go Aug. 31.
Taylor signed with the Seahawks on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Taylor worked with the Seahawks this offseason but was cut before Week 1. Seattle could clearly use the help in the secondary after getting diced up by Andy Dalton for 418 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener. Furthermore, the Seahawks didn't use a nickelback in that game, opting to instead use linebackers to cover wide receivers. Taylor could work in immediately as a nickel corner, bolstering the team's secondary before Week 2's matchup versus the Steelers.
Taylor was released by the Seahawks on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Taylor signed with the Seahawks in May and was working as the nickel cornerback throughout training camp, but the team opted to go in a different direction. The 28-year-old played in 14 games between the Broncos and Cardinals last season, and had 18 tackles (16 solo) and a forced fumble.
Taylor is signing a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Seahawks had a hole at slot corner after Justin Coleman signed with Detroit this offseason. Taylor will be an option to fill that hole, but he may not be a shoe-in after allowing 7.0 yards per coverage snap from the slot in 2018, the fifth-highest rate in the league.
Taylor visited with the Seahawks on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Taylor played for both the Broncos and the Cardinals in 2018, but he didn't have a starting role with either team. The Seahawks have two starting cornerbacks in Shaquill Griffin and Tre Flowers, but they could use depth in nickel packages after they lost Justin Coleman in free agency.
Taylor was ejected from Saturday night's game against the Browns after making contact with Cleveland's Breshard Perriman after a play, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports.
Taylor becomes the third Broncos cornerback to leave the game. Brendan Langley left earlier with a concussion, then Bradley Roby left with a facial laceration.
Taylor signed a one-year contract with the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Taylor appeared in 10 games with Arizona this season, accumulating 17 tackles (15 solo) and one pass defended. With Chris Harris (leg) out for Week 14, it's possible that Taylor could see work as early as Sunday against the 49ers.
Taylor was released by the Cardinals on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Taylor played a rotational role in Arizona's secondary through 10 games this season, but ultimately was unable to earn a stable position with the team. The Cardinals acquired Taylor in a trade with the Browns this offseason, and have now opted to part ways following his poor showing during a Week 11 loss to the Raiders. The 28-year-old will search for a depth role elsewhere in the league if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
Taylor (back) is active for Thursday's game against the Broncos.
Taylor appears to have fully recovered from a lingering back injury and will suit up against the Broncos. The starting cornerback will attempt to contain the Case Keenum-led passing attack.
