06:26 AM ET 05.05 | Patriots running back Fred Taylor, who has a history of nagging injuries, recently suffered a sprained left wrist while he was exercising, according to medical sources. Taylor hurt the wrist when he fell on his outstretched left hand. It appears the injury occurred while he was working out on his own in South Florida and not at Gillette Stadium under the team's supervision. Taylor, who signed a two-year, $5 million deal to join the Patriots in February, sought treatment April 24, complaining of pain for two days. An MRI did not reveal any fractures, dislocations, or ligament damage, and the initial diagnosis of a sprain was confirmed. Taylor was told to put the wrist in a Velcro splint, rest it, and ice it. Last Monday, doctors told Taylor that he gradually could ramp up his activity over the following two or three weeks. The injury has affected Taylor's ability to lift weights, as that activity, in particular, aggravates the wrist.
