At a Browns Backers event in Akron, General Manager Tom Heckert said he is “100% positive” that DT Phil Taylor will play this season-
“One hundred percent — I don’t think there’s any question about that,” Heckert said when asked about Taylor playing in 2012. “Once it’s healed, it’s healed. He should start lifting in four months.”
Jeff Schudel of the News-Herald reports the timeline would put Taylor back on the field by late October or early November.
