Sports Illustrated wrote:The Jacksonville Jaguars say it's nothing serious, but Fred Taylor hasn't practiced since suffering a bone bruise on July 30. In the meantime, LaBrandon Toefield, a fourth-round pick out of LSU, has solidified the top backup spot. In the past, James Stewart and Stacey Mack entered seasons as Taylor's backup and produced solid numbers after he went down. Toefield, a 233-pound back with 4.5 speed, could be worth a shot in the later rounds of your draft, especially if you select Taylor.
I didn't realize that it's been two weeks since he last practiced. I'm not a Taylor owner, but if I were, I'd certainly be worried. Although, does this really surprise anybody?
I think it's kinda humorous that two of Taylor's past backups have become starters simply because of the opportunities his injuries gave them.
Toefield's stock is rising very quickely.
