Taylor returns to action

By Chris Forsberg

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots running back Fred Taylor returned to the field Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars -- his former team -- for his first game action since suffering an ankle injury Oct. 4 against the Baltimore Ravens.

With the Patriots on top, 28-0, Taylor made his first appearance on the first play of the fourth quarter. After a false start penalty, he came out of the backfield on a play-action fake as Tom Brady chucked a 17-yard touchdown pass to Randy Moss (the third time the duo hooked up Sunday).
