Fred Taylor loosens up

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots running back Fred Taylor is currently on the field, loosening up with a member of the team's training staff. This would appear to be an indication that he is a game-time decision.

Taylor, who injured his right ankle Oct. 4 against Baltimore, underwent surgery Oct. 8. He has not played since.

Taylor was questionable on the team's injury report this week.

In situations like these, the player usually tests the injury and then there is a discussion with the medical and training staff before making a final call.
