Either way, Terrance West has established himself as the clear starter in Baltimore. It's his first practice in a little over a calendar year after undergoing foot surgery.
A 6-foot-1, 225 pound "head of steam" runner who was a solid blocker coming out of Coastal Carolina, Taliaferro makes sense as a fullback.
The formerly buzzed-about 2014 fourth-rounder will head into the offseason with 14 carries over the past two seasons.
Limited to six games by injury over the past two years, Taliaferro is probably done in Baltimore. Taliaferro was active over Buck Allen and now appears to be even with Dixon on the depth chart behind Terrance West. The formerly buzzed about running back is buried on the depth chart, so he's trying to increase his versatility.
Limited to six games by injury over the past two years, Taliaferro is probably done in Baltimore. Taliaferro was active over Buck Allen and now appears to be even with Dixon on the depth chart behind Terrance West. Taliaferro is expected to play Sunday, which could relegate Buck Allen back to the inactive list.
Lindley was signed before Week 17, when the Colts found themselves in truly dire quarterback straits. The writing was on the wall after Moore was a healthy scratch in favor of Cooper Rush last Sunday.
Going on 27, Lindley has scattered six starts across four NFL seasons. Frankly, it's astounding Moore made it as long as he did in Dallas. Kinne transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver this offseason in an effort to make the final roster.
Fighting for a roster spot in a loaded backfield, he cannot afford to miss any more time.
Taliaferro will need to beat out Terrance West to keep his job.
The problem is he has not been able to stay healthy through his first two years in the league, playing just 16 games total because of foot injuries.
