Taylor was targeted once and caught one pass for 17 yards in Sunday's 26-20 victory over the Dolphins.
Analysis: Taylor made a key play on the Packers' touchdown drive right out of halftime that tied the contest at 20, but he wound up totaling only five snaps even with fellow running back Aaron Jones playing through an ankle injury. Unless Jones is unable to go, expect Taylor to play a bit role again in Week 17 against the Vikings.

Taylor had four carries for 15 yards in Monday's 24-12 victory over the Rams.
Analysis: Taylor was signed to the active roster just hours before Monday's contest, and he opened the night as the third running back behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. However, Dillon left the game with a head injury and the Packers did not want to lean solely on Jones, so Taylor picked up four carries on the final drive of the evening. Taylor could operate as the backup in Week 16 if Dillon in unable to go, but in that scenario, Jones would likely handle the bulk of the work in the backfield.

The Packers signed Taylor from the practice squad to the active roster Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Taylor was previously on the active roster and made seven appearances before being waived at the end of November. He rejoined the team via a practice-squad deal and was elevated for three consecutive contests (Week 11-13). However, across his 10 total appearances, the running back has rushed just once for six yards across seven offensive snaps. He figures to garner a similar role as long as Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon are healthy. To make room for Taylor on the active roster, Green Bay waived Sammy Watkins.
Dec 19, 2022 1:18 PM EST
Taylor reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Taylor saw his first carry of the season and took it for six yards in Sunday's win over the Bears. With Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon as the only running backs on the team's 53-man roster, it's likely Taylor will find himself on the field again in Week 15 against the Rams, as the Packers are now one a bye.
Dec 5, 2022 6:16 PM EST
Taylor had one carry for six yards in Sunday's 28-19 victory over the Bears.
Analysis: Fellow running back Aaron Jones briefly left Sunday's contest with a shin injury, which allowed Taylor to both log a season-high six snaps and run the ball for the first time all season. Jones returned to the contest and presumably will be good to go following the Packers' Week 14 bye, so Taylor remains a distant third option in the backfield for the time being.
Dec 5, 2022 9:00 AM EST
Taylor has been promoted to the Packers' active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: With Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon both healthy, Taylor's role in Sunday's contest will presumably just be as a special-teams contributor. It will be his tenth game on the active roster this season.
Dec 3, 2022 10:25 AM EST
Taylor reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Taylor suited up for his ninth game with the Packers on Sunday. Although he failed to see a snap on offense, he did play 10 special-teams snaps against the Eagles. With Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon as the only running backs on the active roster, it's likely Taylor will find himself suiting up with the team again in Week 13 against the Bears.
Nov 28, 2022 5:15 PM EST
Taylor was elevated by Green Bay from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of Sunday's road contest against Philadelphia.
Analysis: This will be the ninth week this season during which Taylor has been active for the Packers, as he's been signed and waived from the active roster twice but has rejoined the practice squad each time. Taylor hasn't been able to see the field much behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon, as he's logged only one offensive snap thus far. Meanwhile, the third-year back has racked up 78 special-teams snaps, and that's likely the primary role he'll play again Week 12.
Nov 26, 2022 4:18 PM EST
The Packers signed Taylor to their practice squad on Friday.
Analysis: Taylor has bounced on and off the Packers' active roster throughout the season. He was most recently waived Wednesday, though it didn't take long for him to rejoin the team. He has played in eight games on the campaign, with 78 of his 79 snaps coming on special teams.
Nov 25, 2022 7:32 PM EST
Green Bay released Taylor on Wednesday.
Analysis: Taylor was signed to the active roster Nov. 15 ahead of the Packers' Thursday night loss to Tennessee, but he was limited to a special-teams role in that contest. The 24-year-old has been active for eight of Green Bay's 11 games this season, but he's seen only one offensive snap and no touches. Taylor could return to the Packers' practice squad if he goes unclaimed off waivers.
Nov 23, 2022 4:45 PM EST
Taylor was signed to the Packers' active roster from their practice squad Tuesday.
Analysis: Taylor's addition to the active roster comes as the team waived Kylin Hill on Tuesday. The 24-year-old has already appeared in seven games for the Packers this season, but has only seen one snap on offense. With Aaron Jones (shin) questionable for Thursday's game with the Titans, Taylor could be in for a considerable workload, if Jones were to sit.
Nov 15, 2022 2:01 PM EST
Taylor signed with the Packers' practice squad Thursday.
Analysis: Taylor was waived by the Packers from their 53-man roster on Tuesday, but he's now back with the franchise as a member of their practice squad. The 24-year-old has played in seven games for the team this season, making his contributions on special teams. He'll now work to find his way back to the active roster.
Nov 3, 2022 2:16 PM EST
Green Bay waived Taylor on Tuesday.
Analysis: After not suiting up for the season opener, Taylor appeared in seven straight games but played primarily on special teams. His release suggests Kylin Hill will be activated from IR ahead of Week 9 to operate as the No. 3 running back behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. If Taylor clears waivers, Green Bay would likely re-sign him to a practice-squad deal.
Nov 1, 2022 2:28 PM EST
Green Bay signed Taylor from its practice squad to its active roster Friday.
Analysis: Taylor was elevated ahead of Week 2 versus Chicago and just played eight snaps on special teams, but the Packers evidently saw enough from him to give him a promotion ahead of Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. He will likely continue to contribute exclusively on special teams as long as Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon remain healthy.
Sep 24, 2022 11:38 AM EST
Taylor was reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction report.
Analysis: Taylor got the call to be the Packers' No. 3 running back Sunday against the Bears with Kylin Hill (knee) still on the PUP list. However, he never saw the field on offense and only contributed on eight special-teams snaps. With Hill out for at least two more weeks, Taylor will look to earn another chance with the active roster Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Sep 19, 2022 2:43 PM EST
The Packers elevated Taylor from their practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's contest against the Bears.
Analysis: With Kylin Hill (knee) sidelined, Taylor and Tyler Goodson competed during training for the No. 3 spot behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. However, the Packers opted to keep only two running backs on the initial 53-man roster, leaving Taylor and Goodson to sign practice-squad deals. Neither practice-squad player was elevated for Green Bay's season-opening loss, but Taylor will get the first look as the No. 3 RB in Week 2. Last year, he rushed 23 times for 89 yards and scored one touchdown across nine appearances. However, barring injuries, Taylor isn't expected to garner many touches against Chicago.
Sep 17, 2022 3:32 PM EST
The Packers signed Taylor to their practice squad Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: With Kylin Hill (knee) sidelined, Taylor and Tyler Goodson competed during training camp for the No. 3 spot behind Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon. Taylor did his best to earn the job, rushing 18 times for 71 yards while catching three passes for 17 yards across three exhibition contests. However, the Packers opted to keep just two running back on their initial 53-man roster, with the understanding that Amari Rodgers or Randall Cobb could handle emergency RB duties if Jones or Dillon went down with an injury. Regardless, Taylor and Goodson will both be candidates to be elevated on a weekly basis now that they are members of the practice squad.
Aug 31, 2022 11:33 AM EST
The Packers waived Taylor on Tuesday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Analysis: Taylor appeared in nine games for Green Bay last year, but the Packers will role with Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon as their only two healthy running backs ahead of the regular season. Over three preseason games, Taylor rushed 18 times for 71 yards while tallying three receptions for 17 yards.
Aug 30, 2022 5:40 PM EST
Taylor had seven carries for 34 yards and three receptions for 17 yards in Thursday's exhibition game against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Taylor worked behind Tyler Goodson in Thursday's contest, but he still finished with just two fewer touches than his counterpart. Goodson -- an undrafted rookie -- has made a strong run for a roster spot, and if he snags one it will almost certainly come at Taylor's expense. However, Taylor has been with Green Bay since 2020, so he has the edge in the experience department.
Aug 25, 2022 11:05 PM EST
Taylor is battling Tyler Goodson and Dexter Williams for the third running back spot on the Packers' initial 53-man roster, Mike Spofford of Packers.com reports.
Analysis: Taylor toted eight carries for an unremarkable 27 yards in Green Bay's second preseason matchup versus New Orleans, but his performance in the Packers' upcoming preseason finale at Kansas City could be what ultimately determines his position ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. The ability to contribute on special teams will likely be a significant factor in his team's decision after the Pack's abysmal performance in that phase in 2021, and Taylor has more recent experience there than Goodson or Williams.
