JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)—Jaguars running back Fred Taylor will miss the rest of the season because of a thumb injury.

Taylor will be placed on injured reserve for the final three games after tearing ligaments in his left thumb Sunday at Chicago. Taylor had hoped to play though the injury, but a second opinion confirmed the need for season-ending surgery.

Taylor will finish this season with 556 yards rushing and a career-low 3.9 yards a carry. He ranks 16th on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 11,271 yards, 81 behind John Riggins.
