The Seattle Seahawks selected defensive end Darrell Taylor in the second round of this year’s NFL draft out of Tennessee but the rookie has yet to step on the football field.

Taylor has spent his first year in the National Football League on the Seahawks’ Non-Football Injury list after having surgery to repair a college leg injury.

The rookie could soon be making an appearance.

“He’s going to try to practice next week for the first time and he’s getting ready to do that,” coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday. “We’ll find out if that in fact can come to life and all, so we’ll see. Like I’ve said all along, we’ve been waiting and hoping that we could get to this day, he had a lot of consulting that he did to get to that point, saw a number of doctors to make sure that he was confident in what he was doing.

“So now that we have that behind us, I think he’ll get a chance to see if he can jump back sooner than later.”

Taylor would eventually have to be activated to the 53-man roster before he could play in his first NFL game
