J.J. Taylor, RB (NE)

Lands on COVID list

Taylor has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Taylor has been a healthy scratch for four of the Patriots' last five games, including Sunday's win over the Titans. It remains to be seen if he'll be cleared to play for next Monday's game against the Bills, but unless one of the team's other backs is unavailable, Taylor figures to remain the odd man out in Week 13 even if he is activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
