The Denver Broncos made it official Wednesday, placing starting right tackle Ryan Harris on injured reserve while adding free agent tackle Herb Taylor . Per club policy, terms of Taylor’s deal were not disclosed.
Taylor was a 2007 6th round draft choice for the Kansas City Chiefs, who waived the Texas Christian University product out of training camp in 2009. Taylor played in 18 career games in two seasons with one start.
AT TCU, Taylor was twice named All-Mountain West (at left tackle as a senior and at right as a junior), and he holds the school’s record for most consecutive starts with 48. A Houston native, Taylor was born September 22, 1984.
Taylor is expected to add depth at tackle, while T Tyler Polumbus will continue to start in Harris’ place.
Expect T Brandon Gorin and Taylor to battle for active status each week, with Gorin having the obvious edge… The loss of Harris hurts, but Polumbus has been baptized by fire and is playing better. His first game as “The Guy” will give him his toughest test yet – Colts DE Robert Mathis.
