FOXBORO -- Running back Fred Taylor said on Friday that if he were needed in Sunday's game against Buffalo, he could be ready to play for the first time since right ankle surgery on Oct. 8. "Trust me, I want to be back more than anyone," Taylor said after practicing for the second time in three days this week. "The smart thing is to make sure that I'm healthy enough that when I do get out there, there aren't any setbacks. I feel like if there were a desperate need, I could play." Taylor has missed the last nine games with the Patriots since injuring his right ankle on Oct. 4 against Baltimore. For more, visit the football blog, It Is What It Is.
