Phil Taylor tore his pectoral muscle last week lifting weights and he’ll have surgery to repair it this week on May 16th. The recovery time is expected to be 4-6 months for the 2011 1st round pick out of Baylor. He’ll almost definitely start the season on the PUP and might not play until November or December or not at all if the Browns are predictably out of the mix by that point. The Browns have to be feeling fortunate that they used 2 draft picks on depth defensive tackles in John Hughes and Billy Winn in the 2012 NFL Draft. Both should now see immediately action as rookie next to veteran Ahtyba Rubin at defensive tackle.
