Taylor Expected to Miss a Few Weeks

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Fred Taylor is expected to be out for at least three weeks with a groin injury suffered in Sunday's 13-6 win against the Tennessee Titans. Today Taylor underwent a Magnetic Resonance Imaging exam, which revealed a partial detachment of the adductor tendon from the bone.

Taylor will miss the Jaguars' next two games - at home against the Cleveland Browns and at the Seattle Seahawks - and his status will be re-evaluated during the team's open week. The Jaguars' next game after their October 14 off day will be a Thursday night game at home against the Buffalo Bills on October 18.

"I'm hopeful that proper treatment and rehabilitation will get Fred back on the field soon," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "Until then, I'm confident that our offense can be productive, and I'm confident in the other running backs we have available."
