Taylor's journey on and off the practice squad this season hasn't stopped him from appearing in eight games this season, because the Packers consider him a solid special teams player. He has not carried the ball this season, but serves as the No. 3 back behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon.

Gaines will be making his second appearance on the active roster after being elevated from the practice squad vs. Washington. He has played only on special teams this season.
