Ravens backup quarterback Taylor hurts his shoulder

A lot of Ravens observers thought the team needed to upgrade their backup quarterback spot from rookie Tyrod Taylor.

They may not have a choice after Taylor left Thursday’s game in the first quarter with a “shoulder contusion.”  Taylor took a big hit and his arm appeared to go limp, but we’ll have to wait for an official diagnosis. Third quarterback Hunter Cantwell will likely have to finish out the game.

If Taylor is questionable for the season opener, the Ravens will have to find another arm after this weekend’s cuts. We half-expected them to make a move already, and now fully expect it.

Taylor finishes with one touchdown and three interceptions in the preseason.

    He had been playing decent to good and if he has knowledge of thier offense why (before this) would they need a better backup, I’m not a Ravens fan and may be missing something but all I’ve hard is good things about this kid, plus I’m pretty sure he could do more then QB if absolutely needed.

    who TF is Tyrod Taylor?

    I hear Daunte Culpepper still needs a job.

    Not to mention he’s better than both the scrub backups you have at the moment healthy or otherwise.

    Your team is pure garbage. Crawl back into your trailor and adjust the rabbit ears on your black & white TV.

    None of your players could even make our team .

    onegame: he’s the guy with every single WVU record…yeah, he broke every record Vick set.

    The Ravens–No other team talks as much as this bunch. A couple of postseason wins but the Steelers remain the class of the division.

    ================================

    Neither Vick nor Tyrod have set any records at WVU.
    They both played for VT. Although his style of play is like Vick, He still did not break any of Vick’s Records.
    I wish him well and hope get heals quickly. Tyrod could easily take Flacco’s job in the next year.

    The guy can`t hold Michael Vicks jock strap, no need for the comparsion. And for all you Hokie fans you know he is no quarterback.

    Tyrod holds the VT school record for passing yards, rushing yards, and rushing TD’s..but he had a longer college career than Vick.

    What you are missing is he’s a rookie and this league eats rookie QB’s for breakfast. If Flacco goes down Taylor won’t have the luxury of playing against the scrubs he went againt in the preseason.

    Yes, Daunte Culpepper could be great back-up! I saw him play for UFL Sacramento Mtn Lions last year and he looked in top form…running, throwing deep. No sign of knee injury and he was in primo physical condition. They ought to give him a try out…can’t hurt. Think he finally got an agent, too.

    @raven410

    I stand corrected..you are right

    kibawib …..The Steelers are the class of the division??? Maybe you should check out some of the comments by James Harrison during the lockout to see how classy he is.

    Taylor may not be as talented as vick, but the guy is way ahead in terms of maturity. It won’t take a prison stint and 8 yrs for things to click for this guy.

    Well you got the right region, but the wrong school. He went to VT.

    Here’s my guess. Bulger did not want to go through training camp. He’s been at home throwing every day and is in shape. He knows the Ravens system and play book. Last year I think he earned about $4 million and didn’t take a snap. I would not be surprised if Ozzie’s on the phone with him right now talking about a $2 million deal for 2011. It would be easy money. He’ll practice for Steeler’s week and will be ready if needed….. or maybe I’m wrong. It won’t be the last time.

    Hi Daunte! Hope your phone rings this weekend.

    @vincentbojackson
    I beg your Pardon. Matt Ryan, Sam Bradford, and Ben Roethlisberger, and Josh Freeman all had pretty darn good rookie seasons in the NFL. Not to mention the very QB Tyrod Taylor would be backing up, Joe Flacco, who won a playoff game in his rookie season. Who’s to say that Taylor couldn’t similarly achieve this level of success; especially with a team as well stocked as the Baltimore Ravens are?
