The Facts: Taylor has been sprinting, cutting, turning on a dime and — perhaps most encouraging of all — catching passes from Jimmy Garoppolo while the 49ers wait for the green light to fully reopen the team's practice facility. "I'm getting back to my squirrely ways," the team's smallest, quickest receiver said with a laugh.
Diehards Line: According to The Athletic's Matt Barrows, Taylor, who missed all of the 2019 season with a foot injury, has been part of the crew of receivers running routes for Garoppolo in the Bay Area in recent weeks. The group also includes two other receivers coming back from injuries — Jalen Hurd (back) and Shawn Poindexter (ACL) — as well as veterans Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne. Taylor said the sessions have been great for his comeback and for breaking up the monotony of an offseason in which all formal NFL practices have been wiped out due to the coronavirus pandemic.
