Patriots lose running back to Packers practice squad
The Patriots have lost a running back to the Packers.
Green Bay signed RB Patrick Taylor off the New England practice squad on Monday, as announced by the team. Taylor is a familiar face in Green Bay, having played 27 games as a reserve running back for the Packers before being waived on Oct. 10. The Patriots signed Taylor to their practice squad eight days later.
The Packers have a fresh need for depth at running back after Aaron Jones suffered a knee injury during Sunday’s 23-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Jones apparently avoided a serious injury, but may need to miss time. Per NFL rules, Taylor signs directly to the 53-man roster and must stay there for at least three weeks.
As for the Patriots, they now have an open spot on their practice squad. They recently claimed RB Jamycal Hasty off waivers from the Jaguars, placing him right on their own 53-man roster.
