A team source, however, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that it's "probable" Taylor will have surgery and would miss about three weeks.
"I wasn't even like paying attention," Taylor told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "But I just know during that time in the first quarter, I really felt it."
Taylor, 31, signed a four-year, $28 million contract with the Steelers last week. He was selected by Pittsburgh in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft.
