Tyrod Taylor will train with Giants before Week 14 after returning from injured reserve.

NY Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor is nearing a return. On Monday, the club announced Taylor will return off injured reserve and practice.

Taylor missed the last four games after injuring his ribs against the Jets in Week 8. In Week 9, Daniel Jones suffered a season-ending injury rather than returning to the starting job for Taylor.

Injury forced youngster Tommy DeVito into the starting lineup. Giants starter DeVito has started three games. He guided the squad to a 2-1 record with six touchdowns and one interception.

Taylor may start practicing before the team's Week 14 game against the Packers. Taylor need not return to practice immediately

Players that have their practice window opened can practice for 21 days without counting toward the 53-man roster. After 21 days, the Giants must activate Taylor or place him on season-ending injured reserve

 Taylor's readiness to practice speaks well for his 53-man roster comeback in the coming weeks.

If Taylor improves, the Giants may start him over DeVito. The Giants have little to play for at 4-8 and may decide to observe how DeVito develops in the last games.

The Giants have used Taylor in seven games, three starts, in 2023. He has two touchdowns and no interceptions in those games. Taylor started 1-2 before his rib injury.
