Browns expect Taylor to be back in 2012

Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert says he does not believe defensive tackle Phil Taylor will be lost for the season with his torn pectoral muscle.

Heckert tells the Akron Beacon-Journal that Taylor will need about six months of recovery time, which could have him back on the field in October or November.

"I don't think there's any question about that. We think he'll probably be [back by the] end of October, early November. But he'll definitely be back, no doubt, no question about it," Heckert said.

The defensive lineman underwent surgery last Wednesday to repair the injury.
