Taylor (back) practiced fully Wednesday. Now fully recovered from a concussion and seemingly the back injury as well, Taylor is on track to dress in Sunday's game against the Ravens. After surrendering the starting gig to Baker Mayfield, Taylor will serve as the top backup option while Drew Stanton drops to the No. 3 role.
Taylor (concussion/back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Taylor lost his starting job when rookie Baker Mayfield replaced him in Week 3 and came back to win against the Jets. Therefore, if he was healthy, Taylor would've been a backup, but Drew Stanton will take that role instead. Once Taylor's healthy again, he'll surely push Stanton back to the No. 3 spot, but Mayfield would have to lay an egg to be dethroned.
Taylor (concussion/back) may not be active for Sunday's game against the Raiders with Drew Stanton expected to serve as the backup to starting quarterback Baker Mayfield, Sam Wyche of NFL Network reports. Taylor exited the Week 3 game against the Jets with the concussion, clearing the way for Mayfield to guide the Browns to a comeback win and cement himself as the team's new No. 1 signal-caller. It looked as though Taylor would retain the top backup duties in Week 4 after clearing the concussion protocol a few days ago, but the back injury seems to have thwarted those plans. Taylor seems likely to be included among the Browns' inactives this week, but he should supplant Stanton as the No. 2 option once he has made a full recovery from the back issue.
Taylor (concussion/back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The QB is traveling with the Browns to Oakland for the contest, but it remains to be seen if Taylor will be cleared to back up Baker Mayfield on Sunday. If he isn't, Drew Stanton would be in line to handle the assignment.
Taylor has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and will take part in Thursday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. It remains to be seen if Taylor will be eased back into on-field activity with a limited or full practice, but either way, it looks like he's trending toward being available Sunday in Oakland. Head coach Hue Jackson already announced Monday that Taylor would be slated for backup duties behind No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, who gets his first NFL start after coming off the bench to guide the Browns to their first victory in 635 days in Week 3 against the Jets.
