The New York Giants designated quarterback Tyrod Taylor to return from the injured reserve on Monday morning.
Taylor suffered a rib injury in the Giants' Week 8 loss to the New York Jets. The injury came when he was running with the ball after catching his own deflected pass. Taylor's injury brought UDFA rookie Tommy DeVito onto the field, and he has started since Daniel Jones tore his ACL in Week 9.
Taylor himself was starting while Jones recovered from a neck injury suffered earlier in the year. He played well against the Buffalo Bills and Washington Commanders in relief of Jones, but was injured before he could put more than a small sample size on tape.
The move to designate Taylor for return opens his 21-day practice window, allowing him to return to the practice field without taking a roster spot. The Giants confirmed that he will start practicing Monday.
He has not been activated off of the IR as of this writing. Head coach Brian Daboll was non-committal last week when asked whether DeVito or Taylor would be the starting quarterback once Taylor was healthy.
