It looks like fans will have to wait yet another year for the 2012 3rd round pick to play. Brandon Taylor is set to have knee surgery that will cut his season short once again.
Chargers safety Brandon Taylor to have knee surgery, won't play this year, sources say: http://t.co/v01p2ZnT5p— Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) December 19, 2013
Fans were hopeful that Taylor would be activated these last 2 games, but it seems like the setback Taylor was never able to overcome the setback he suffered back in Week 3 of the preseason. There was no structural damage revealed on the MRI. Because of this, Taylor has been a full participant in practices since September, reportedly. Unfortunately, Taylor has suffered from swelling, and this knee scope surgery he's scheduled for is supposed to help him get back his explosiveness.
It makes you wonder if the new regime will ever give Taylor a shot, or if they'll just cut their losses. He's played 40 snaps in 2 years, and it seems like Jahleel Addae has done enough to at least earn a shot at more playing time next year. Taylor will have an uphill battle on the depth chart, and that's not even factoring in if the Chargers bring in competition through the draft or via free agency.
