Browns roster news: Phil Taylor activated, Ronnie Cameron promoted

Matt Sullivan

In his rookie season in 2011, Taylor started in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded four sacks and 59 tackles.

The Cleveland Browns beefed up their defensive line on Friday as the team announced the moves to activate defensive tackle Phillip Taylor from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list and promote defensive tackle Ronnie Cameron from the practice squad.

Taylor, a first-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, missed the first seven games of the season for the Browns after he tore a pectoral muscle during the offseason. Following the activation from the PUP list, Taylor is expected to make his season debut on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Cameron, 23, was signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent, but was claimed by the Browns off waivers and appeared in each of the final three preseason games of the year for Cleveland. He spent each of the first eight weeks of the season on the practice squad.

Taylor started in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded four sacks and 59 tackles as a rookie in 2011.
