Fred Taylor Out For Ravens Game

It’s a different season, but the same old story for Fred Taylor. The future Hall of Famer has been anything but that in his latter years in New England, missing 11 games the last two years. He’s about to miss No. 12, and I don’t mean Tom Brady.

Taylor has been ruled out on Sunday against the Ravens with a toe injury, but is his loss that critical? The team is already without Laurence Maroney (traded) and Kevin Faulk (torn ACL), but has managed to form a decent tandem of backs in BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Danny Woodhead, and Sammy Morris.

Taylor has rushed for 98 yards on 25 carries this season, with the bulk of his work coming in Week 1 against the Bengals. In that game, Taylor amassed 71 yards on 14 carries to help the Patriots win 38-24. That was then, and this is now. The reality is that Taylor is out of the gameplan most weeks, and with him out of the lineup on Sunday, it should have little effect on the result.
