Ravens activate RB Lorenzo Taliaferro

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

The Ravens had three weeks to evaluate Lorenzo Taliaferro in practice, but the team apparently didn’t need much time to decide the third-year running back would be a good addition to its injury-plagued 53-man roster.

Following Saturday’s walkthrough practice, the Ravens activated Taliaferro from the physically unable to perform list.

Fantasy Impact: 

It’s unclear how Taliaferro will immediately fit in the running back rotation. Terrance West is the lead back, and rookie Kenneth Dixon and second-year pro Buck Allen have gotten sporadic carries behind him. The 6-foot, 225-pound Taliaferro has averaged 4.2 yards on 81 career carries, so he ultimately could factor in short-yardage situations, an area where the Ravens have struggled.
