Denver Broncos wide receiver Jordan Taylor could be nearing a return to the field soon.
With the Denver Broncos sitting at 3-5 halfway through the season, the team could soon see one of its injured players hit the field for the first time this season. Wide receiver Jordan Taylor is just one day away from hitting the field to test his injured hips that he had surgeries on.
Taylor’s potential arrival to the lineup could be crucial for the team’s second half of the season.
With rumors swirling about a potential trade of Demaryius Thomas and rookie DaeSean Hamilton injured, Taylor could provide the spark that the Broncos offense needs.
Taylor was a favorite of former Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. So much of a favorite that Manning raved about Taylor during the 2016 offseason and essentially got him a job on the team.
It will be interesting to see what type of impact Taylor will have on the Broncos offense. It will be his first time practicing with the team’s new quarterback Case Keenum.
The Broncos have been struggling this season in terms of throwing the football.
Keenum has been frustrating to watch throughout the 2018 season. He has thrown at least one interception in each game so far. Maybe Taylor is the guy that helps his quarterback play better football.
Taylor has caught 29 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns in two seasons with the Broncos.
Emmanuel Sanders has been the most productive of the wide receiver group. He leads the team with 50 receptions for 660 yards and three touchdowns.
Demaryius Thomas is second with 36 receptions for 402 yards and three touchdowns.
Despite the presence of rookie Courtland Sutton, the arrival of Taylor could be crucial if the Broncos decide they are in good position to move on from Demaryius Thomas.
I am very interested to see Taylor get back on the practice field and then on the field during games. His 6’5”, 210-pound frame allows him to get above defenders, making him a favorite to win jump ball situation.
Taylor was signed by Denver in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Rice.
