The former Brentford and Swansea City man was released by the Vetch Field club late last month and has been training with The U's ever since.
The former Abbey Stadium trainee returned to his old club to initially stay fit but with Taylor's squad suffering through injuries, Theobald has been drafted into the Cambridge United squad as defensive cover.
Meanwhile, Taylor and his assistant Dale Brooks have been eyeing a loan signing following a scouting trip to Lancashire to watch an unnamed young left-sided defender in a Premiership reserve match.
It is possible that The U's management duo may have been eyeing Leeds United youngster Tom Newey, who plays as a left-sided player.
In other news, Cambridge United are in contract talks with captain Paul Wanless, whose current deal is due to expire at the end of the season.
With Shane Tudor, Stevland Angus and Dave Kitson all signing extensions to their deals, Taylor is looking next to extend his skipper's deal at the Abbey Stadium.
