Packers' Lane Taylor: Restructures deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (biceps) and the Packers have restructured the final year of his his contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

It is unclear exactly how the contract was reworked, but it should result in about $3 million more in 2020 cap space for Green Bay. Taylor is now due $1.5 million, including a $100,000 signing bonus. The guard had his season end early in 2019 due to a biceps injury. There has not been much news regarding his progress, but there is no indication he will not be ready for 2020.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Undergoing surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (biceps) will undergo surgery on his left bicep muscle, which rules out any potential return from injured reserve this season, Tom Silverstein of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Taylor was placed on injured reserve Saturday after suffering the bicep injury. It will now be up to rookie Elgton Jenkins to fill in as the starter at left guard for the remainder of the season.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Packers' Lane Taylor: Out Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (biceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Taylor went from full, to limited, to non-participant at practice this week, which indicates he suffered some type of setback. He competed with rookie Elgton Jenkins for the starting left guard job during training camp, so the Packers are presumably comfortable with his replacement.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Maintains starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt LaFleur said Taylor will start at left guard for the Packers in the regular-season opener against the Bears, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Taylor was battling Elgton Jenkins for the starting job and managed to hold off the rookie second-round pick. The 29-year-old started 45 games for the Packers over the past three seasons, but he may have a short leash as a starter if he struggles early in the season.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Plays in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor played 16 snaps in Thursday's preseason opener, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.

The Packers elected to rest nearly all their starters Thursday, so it was notable that Taylor -- a starter for three years -- suited up. The reason, head coach Matt LaFleur said via the Wisconsin State Journal after the game, was that Taylor is competing with rookie Elgton Jenkins for the starting left guard job. Taylor has worked with the starters all throughout camp, but he will need to be sharp the rest of the way to hold off Jenkins, whom the Packers selected in the second round.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a knee injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Taylor had his leg rolled on by a teammate during Sunday's game against the Jets. With Taylor temporarily out, Justin McCray is expected to take over left guard duties.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (foot) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Falcons.

Taylor was limited in practice throughout the week due to his foot injury suffered in Week 13. With Byron Bell (knee) and Bryan Bulaga (knee/illness) also inactive, Green Bay is down three starters on the offensive line. Lucas Patrick or Justin McCray will likely draw the start at left guard in place of Taylor.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Taylor was questionable entering Sunday after being limited in practice throughout the week. He'll draw the start at left guard with Lucas Patrick likely to step in if Taylor aggravates the injury.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (quadriceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Taylor suffered the quad injury last Sunday against the Vikings but was able to practice this week as a limited participant. Lucas Patrick is listed as Taylor's backup at left guard on the Packers' depth chart and would presumably fill in should the latter ultimately be ruled out.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ankle) is healthy and participating in training camp Thursday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Taylor sustained an ankle injury in Week 6 last year, undergoing offseason surgery to address the issue. The veteran guard's recovery is great news for a Packers O-line that struggled to stay healthy last season, as well as for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who's coming off a season-ending injury. Taylor should reclaim the starting job at guard to begin the 2018 season.

Packers' Lane Taylor: Bouncing back from ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ankle) is unlikely to participate in OTAs but is expected to return in time for the Packers' training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Taylor underwent offseason surgery to address a nagging ankle issue that wore on him during the 2017 season. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like there's any concern over Taylor's availability for the start of the regular season, which is great news for a Packers team that could be without starting tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) at the start of the campaign.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor signed a three-year, $16.5 million contract extension with the Packers on Monday, ESPN.com reports.

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.
