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.
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.
