Phil Taylor Injury: Pectoral Muscle Is Just Injured For Now

Although reports are swirling that Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor has a torn pectoral muscle, as of now it is just being called injured, and he will be looked at further on Monday, according to Daryl Ruiter of Cleveland's 92.3 FM The Fan.

It is also being said that if it is in fact a torn pectoral muscle, Taylor might miss the entire season. If that's the case, rookie defensive tackles John Hughes and Billy Winn could become immediate contributors. Taylor had 59 tackles and four sacks last year, which was rookie season out of Baylor.
