It has been an eventful season for Taylor, starting with his very public contract standoff and ankle injury that sidelined him for the first four games. But Taylor’s performance has been impressive since he signed a three-year, $42 million extension in October and returned to the lineup.

Taylor’s workload had consistently increased in recent weeks, with the share of carries between him and backup Zack Moss tilted more toward Taylor lately. Taylor has 414 yards on 100 carries since returning.

If Taylor misses time, he’ll give way to Moss, who was one of the NFL’s leading rushers earlier this season in Taylor’s absence. Moss has a career-best 672 yards and five rushing touchdowns this season, surpassing his previous high of 481 yards as a rookie in Buffalo in 2020.
