Taylor (back) is inactive for Monday's contest in Green Bay.
This was more or less a formality after Taylor didn't practice all week and was given a 'doubtful' tag for Monday's game. The 49ers will be down two wide receivers -- also, Dante Pettis (knee) -- which should give Kendrick Bourne, Victor Bolden and Richie James an opportunity to receive looks behind starters Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon.
Taylor (back) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against Green Bay, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Taylor was a non-participant for the third consecutive day, limiting any optimism of his availability for Monday. The 49ers' depth at wide receiver could be tested with Pierre Garcon (shoulder/knee) listed as questionable and Dante Pettis (knee) ruled out. Richie James and Kendrick Bourne could see increased snaps due to the injuries.
Taylor (back) is not expected to play in Monday's game against the Packers, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Taylor was held out of practice Thursday and Friday without any sign of an imminent return. Richie James would make sense as a replacement in the slot, but Kendrick Bourne should also be in the mix for snaps and targets, especially if Pierre Garcon (shoulder/knee) is absent or limited. The 49ers have already ruled out Dante Pettis (knee).
Taylor (back) isn't practicing Friday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
With Taylor and Pierre Garcon (shoulder) still not practicing and Dante Pettis (knee) already ruled out, Kendrick Bourne may get a chance to earn regular reps Monday in Green Bay. The Niners might also consider using rookie slot specialist Richie James if Taylor isn't able to play.
Coach Kyle Shanahan said Taylor would be held out of Thursday's practice due to a back injury, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Three of the 49ers' top four wideouts -- Taylor, Pierre Garcon (shoulder/knee) and Dante Pettis (knee) -- will sit out the team's first practice of the week, though Shanahan noted Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) would be able to practice in full. While Goodwin seems on track to play Monday against the Packers, Pettis has already been ruled out, leaving Taylor and Garcon somewhere in the middle. It wasn't known that Taylor came out of the Week 5 loss to the Cardinals with any injury, so it's possible that his absence Thursday is mainly for maintenance purposes. A clear read on Taylor's health heading into the Monday night matchup might not come until after the 49ers release their final practice report Saturday.
