According to ESPN, Patriots running back Fred Taylor will have surgery on his injured right ankle. The surgery is not expected to sideline Taylor for the remainder of the season. Last Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, Taylor injured the right ankle near the end of the fourth quarter in the Patriots win. The running back hobbled off the field on Sunday and had been held out of practice this week.
