Former Baylor Bear Phil Taylor injures himself during the Cleveland Browns mini-camp

As NFL mini-camps get underway around the league, reports of injuries are sure to surface sooner or later.

Unfortunately for former Baylor Bears defensive tackle Phillip Taylor, he is an early casualty of the Cleveland Browns offseason training program. It appears that Taylor, going into his second season with the Browns, has suffered an injury to his left pectoral muscle while lifting weights.

John Telich of Fox 8 in Cleveland first reported the story:

According to team officials, Taylor will be further evaluated on Monday to determine a course of treatment. Taylor's agent, Peter Schaffer, told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the MRI was for a possible torn pectoral muscle.

Taylor was the 21st overall pick for the Browns in the 2011 NFL Draft. The former Baylor Bears defensive tackle picked up 59 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble in his first pro season.
