Taylor (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
This will be the third consecutive season where Taylor doesn't play a regular season snap. He last played five games for Cleveland in 2014, making 10 tackles.
Taylor (quadriceps) will miss the 2017 season, John Keim of ESPN reports.
Taylor underwent an MRI on Monday and evidently didn't receive good news. This is an unfortunate development for the 2011 first-rounder, who was trying to resuscitate his career after not having played since 2014.
Taylor (quadriceps) will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of his left quad injury, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The news regarding Taylor's status seems to be trending downward at the moment, but the MRI will likely provide clarity. Based on preliminary indications, Taylor could miss some time, which would allow A.J. Francis a clear path to the starting nose tackle spot.
Taylor suffered a left quad injury during the team's preseason contest Sunday.
The severity of Taylor's injury is still up in the air. The team is hoping that he'll be okay but bracing for a scenario in which he'll miss some time. If Taylor is to miss an extended period of time, look for A.J. Francis to slide up into the starting nose tackle spot.
Taylor signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Friday, The Washington Post reports.
Taylor, a first-rounder out of Baylor in 2011, spent the summer with the Broncos but couldn't stay healthy. The Redskins then hosted him for a tryout in Week 6 but didn't extend a contract offer. However, they evidently saw enough in Taylor to bring him back on a future contract and will get to see what he has left to offer throughout the offseason.
