  Chiefs | Ryan Taylor signed    Fri May 22, 02:30 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs signed TE Ryan Taylor on Thursday, May 21. OG Ricky Henry was released to make room for Taylor on the roster.

Footballguys view: Originally a seventh-round pick by the Packers in 2011, Taylor spent last season on three different rosters. If he makes the Chiefs roster, he'll mainly be a special teams player.

  Packers | Ryan Taylor will be on bubble    Thu Jul 10, 05:39 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Ryan Taylor is expected to be on the roster bubble during training camp even though he is a respectable blocker and one of the team's best special teams player.

Footballguys view: Taylor had limited experience at tight end when the Packers selected him in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL draft. He was originally a linebacker and special teams player for the North Carolina Tar Heels, but Taylor moved to tight end as a senior and had intriguing upside at his new position. Taylor may be out of time to develop with guys like Colt Lyerla pushing for a roster spot.

  Packers | Two players sit out practice    Thu Oct 24, 06:25 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Ryan Taylor (knee) and LB Nick Perry (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Footballguys view: With the injury to Jermichael Finley, Taylor is one of a number of tight ends who could see an increase in targets and role. More than likely Andrew Quarless will get the first look as he is the most well rounded of the bunch, though his worth is no more than a "what the heck flex". Quarless and Taylor are more known for blocking. Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on former Newberry basketball player Brandon Bostick.

The Green Bay Packers have declared LB Brad Jones, CB Casey Hayward, LB Clay Matthews, WR James Jones, RB James Starks, LB Nick Perry, TE Ryan Taylor inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Jarrett Boykin will get the start for Jones, and Jermichael Finley will also see a lot of snaps at wide receiver today.

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee), TE Ryan Taylor (knee), LB Brad Jones (hamstring), LB Clay Matthews (thumb) and LB Nick Perry (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and have been ruled out for Week 7.

Footballguys view: The Packers are without three of their starting linebackers, but they were still able to hold the Ravens to 10 points until late in the game last week. Don't assume they will be a pushover for the Browns.

  Packers | Ryan Taylor out a couple of weeks    Wed Oct 16, 11:40 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said TE Ryan Taylor (knee) had surgery on his knee Wednesday, Oct. 16, and it went well. He is expected to be sidelined two to four weeks.

Footballguys view: Another one bites the dust, but at least in this case both the Packers and fantasy owners won't feel the hit. Taylor has been more of a blocker in the rare instances he's actually on the field.

  Packers | Four ruled out    Wed Oct 16, 06:13 PM

Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (thumb), LB Nick Perry (foot), RB James Starks (knee) and TE Ryan Taylor (knee) have been ruled out for Week 7.

Footballguys view: The Packers' pass rush is going to be really short-handed against the Browns in Week 7. This could help the numbers posted by Brandon Weeden and the passing game.
