Could Tyrod Taylor See More Action?

Posted Nov 12, 2013

It was just one play, but backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor showed his speed against Cincy.


Fans wanting to see more Tyrod Taylor might just get their wish.

The Ravens’ backup quarterback isn’t going to see much (or any) time under center. But his superb athleticism is something Baltimore may look to utilize to help its stumbling offense.

Taylor ran an end around Sunday against the Bengals and took it 18 yards. It was the Ravens’ longest rushing play of the game.

On Monday, Harbaugh was asked if fans might see more of that.

“Perhaps, perhaps,” Harbaugh said with a grin, not wanting to tip his hand. “It’s an option for us.”

It was Taylor’s first offensive snap of the season, and he made the most of it. Taylor got some help from his teammates too.

Running back Ray Rice cut the legs of 6-foot-6 defensive end Carlos Dunlap. Tight end Ed Dickson flattened Bengals safety Reggie Nelson. That cleared the right side of the field and Taylor’s blazing speed did the rest. He turned the corner and outran linebacker Vontaze Burfict.

“Oh man, that was exciting,” Taylor said. “Anytime I get to go out there and showcase my talent, that’s definitely exciting. I’m just trying to give a little spark to the offense.”

That end around has always been in the Ravens playbook, but Taylor said coaches told him last week that it could be called against the Bengals.

Taylor said it’s his job to always be prepared for anything. That’s the life of an NFL backup quarterback, even when Flacco has yet to miss a start during his six-year career.

Asked whether he thinks there’s a chance he could see more snaps, Taylor said, “It’s a possibility.”

“That’s all in [Offensive Coordinator] Coach [Jim] Caldwell’s hands,” he said. “Coach Caldwell, if he sees it can help us, I’m always for it. I love to go out there and make plays.”
