Derek Sherrod placed on IR
Sherrod, the team's first-round pick in the 2011 draft, broke his right leg in the Packers' loss at Kansas City on Sunday.
Taylor, a 6-4, 305-pound third-year player, played in 18 games with one start for the Chiefs from 2007-08.
The Chiefs took him in the sixth round of the 2007 draft after he started 48 games at TCU. Taylor was on Denver's active roster briefly at the end of the 2009 season and went to training camp with the Broncos in 2011 and the Giants in 2010.
