CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor has undergone surgery to repair a torn chest muscle he injured while lifting weights.
Taylor tore his left pectoral muscle while bench pressing during the offseason conditioning program last week at the team's facility. A Browns spokesman said the surgery "went well" and the 335-pound Taylor is resting comfortably at the Cleveland Clinic.
The team did not provide a timetable for Taylor's return. Last week, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Taylor would need "months, not weeks" to recover but would not rule him out for this season.
