Notebook: Taylor to return to Jags lineup

| Saturday, Dec. 10, 2005

Jaguars running back Fred Taylor will play against Indianapolis on Sunday after missing three of the past four games because of an ankle injury, but starting center Brad Meester's biceps injury will force him to miss the rest of the season. Jags coach Jack Del Rio did not indicate whether Taylor would start the game.

  • The Seahawks placed linebacker Jamie Sharper on injured reserve, ending his season. Sharper is sidelined by a staph infection in his right knee.

  • LaDainian Tomlinson practiced Friday for the first time this week, as the Chargers continued preparations for Sunday's home game against the Miami Dolphins. Tomlinson, the NFL's fifth-leading rusher, bruised his chest in Sunday night's victory over the Oakland Raiders.

  • The Atlanta Falcons placed former starting receiver Dez White on injured reserve because of a sprained knee, a move expected to end his stay with the team.

  • Jets running back Curtis Martin was downgraded to questionable with a sore right knee and will be a game-time decision against Oakland this weekend.

  • Chicago Bears offensive linemen Olin Kreutz and Fred Miller were fined $50,000 each for a fight that violated the NFL's personal conduct policy. The players were involved in the fight last month at the FBI shooting range in the Chicago area, prompting an internal investigation by the bureau.

  • Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington missed practice again because of a bruised right thigh and most likely will not play against Arizona.

  • Offensive tackle Orlando Brown was placed on injured reserve by the Baltimore Ravens because of recurring back problems from an auto accident.

  • Bills running back Willis McGahee didn't practice because of an illness. McGahee wasn't added to the injury report, and coach Mike Mularkey said he believes McGahee will be fine when Buffalo hosts New England this Sunday.
