Taylor stepped into the Packers' starting left guard spot for the first time in 2016, and his extension puts him in position to hold down the job through 2020. Taylor suffered a minor knee injury in the NFC Championship game, but he played in three preseason games and is healthy heading into Week 1.
The severity of Taylor's knee issue is currently unknown, but he may be able to return following the halftime break.
Tayler (hip) is active for Saturday's matchup with Minnesota, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Taylor injured his hip late in Sunday's victory over the Bears, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Taylor was not on the field for the key 60-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson that set up the game-winning field goal late in Sunday's game, but he indicated after the contest that he did not suffer any sort of serious injury, so the setback may not cost him any further action.
