Found May 15, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Phil Taylor tore his pectoral muscle last week lifting weights and he’ll have surgery to repair it this week on May 16th. The recovery time is expected to be 4-6 months for the 2011 1st round pick out of Baylor. He’ll almost definitely start the season on the PUP and might not play until November or December or not at all if the Browns are predictably out of the mix by that point. The Browns have to be feeling fortunate that they used 2 draft picks on depth defensive tackles in John Hughes and Billy Winn in the 2012 NFL Draft. Both should now see immediately action as rookie next to veteran Ahtyba Rubin at defensive tackle.

Browns CB takes girl to her prom

A Twitter follower without a date to prom asked Joe Haden if he'd like to take her, and much to her surprise, he replied back that he'd love to. 

SHOCK AND LAW

Rookie chooses law school over NFL

Citing concussions as the reason, undrafted rookie Andrew Sweat passed up a chance to make the Cleveland Browns in order to go back to law school. 

Keeping Perspective on Browns Rookie Camp Storylines

I was unable to make it to rookie camp this weekend to see and behold the skills of Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson. In some ways that’s probably a good thing. I learned last year in regular training camp that it is quite a vacuum to look at football. Without some serious perspective it is easy to think the team is far better or far worse than reality. That doesn’t mean it...

Las Vegas Not Buying Holmgren’s “Pretty Good Jump” Promise

If you thought it was hard enough to believe Mike Homgren last week when he said he expected the 2012 Browns to make “a pretty good jump,” here comes the people who risk real money on these promises to say that if Pat Shurmur’s charges are going to make any kind of significant jump next season, it’ll be backward. As reported last week, Cantor Gaming, which operates the sports...

It’s safe to say that the Cleveland Browns coaching staff is in love with Trent Richardson

We knew that the Cleveland Browns liked Trent Richardson a lot. Heck, they basically traded their draft away to get the man. And though the greatest player to ever put on a Cleveland Browns jersey thinks Richardson is just “ordinary”, the Browns coaching staff couldn’t disagree more. And after what Richardson showed them at last weekend’s rookie mini-camp, the Browns coaching...

Browns DB Joe Haden takes Ohio girl to Prom

Cleveland Browns DB Joe Haden saved the prom dreams of an Ohio girl after her date bailed on her at the last minute. Joyce Grendel asked Haden if he would attend her high school prom with her, a bold step taken via Twitter after her original date backed out in the days before the event. To [...]

Browns make roster moves

The Browns have cut running back Armond Smith and signed linebacker Emmanuel Acho, one of their 11 draft picks. Smith made Cleveland's roster last season as an undrafted free agent. He played in three games and spent 11 weeks on the team's practice squad. Acho, who started 48 career games at Texas, was selected in the sixth round. His signing leaves running back Trent Richardson...

Tonight at 6 Browns Running Back Montario Hardesty CS360 Show

Tonight at 6 we have the Cleveland Browns Running Back Montario Hardesty on the Cleveland Sports 360 Show. Drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft Hardesty has the promises of being one of the best running backs in the NFL. Montario has been hampered by injuries since joining the Cleveland Browns and hasn’t been able to perform to the potential he has. The same type of thing...

Browns optimistic Phil Taylor will play in 2012

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Cleveland Browns are optimistic that defensive tackle Phil Taylor will be able to make a significant impact during the 2012 season, despite the fact that he just tore his pectoral muscle. I think Taylor will start out the regular season on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list, which will force him to miss the...

Taylor has surgery on torn muscle

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 (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.

Ozzie Newsome: Richardson May Not Even Get to Ray Lewis

What I will tell you is we’ve got a freshman at Alabama that’ll probably make us forget about Trent Richardson already. They’re that good down in Tuscaloosa right now. Trent’s a physical player. So is Ray [Lewis]. They asked [Ravens top draft choice] Courtney Upshaw about playing against Trent, and he said, ‘I think I can get him on the ground.’ That’s what’s fun...
