Browns DT Phil Taylor Out 4-6 Months With Torn Pectoral Muscle


The Cleveland Browns have confirmed that DT Phil Taylor has indeed suffered a torn pectoral muscle while he was lifting weights on Thursday.

Thankfully for Taylor, the injury took place in May which means that he should be able to return to the team at some point during the season. The timetable that’s being passed around for this type of injury is 4-6 months, so you’d have to think that he’ll end up on PUP list to start the season.

Cleveland will have to get creative now that Taylor’s lost for an extended period of time.


ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentions that if Phil Taylor suffered a torn pectoral muscle, he’ll likely miss four to six months .


John Telich of Fox 8 Cleveland is reporting that Browns DT Phil Taylor is undergoing an MRI for a possible torn pectoral muscle.

This could end up being a huge issue for the Browns, considering that Taylor was cemented as a starting defensive tackle for them. Taylos struggled during his first year in the NFL, but he has plenty of talent to work with. We’ll have more updates as the information becomes available.
