The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to be without top
cornerback Ike Taylor for the next three to six weeks after he injured his
right ankle on the team’s first defensive series against the Baltimore Ravens
Sunday, reports ESPN.
Ike Taylor is expected to miss three to six weeks after
injuring his right ankle in the first series against the Ravens on Sunday, a
source has told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Taylor was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam on Monday to
determine the extent of the injury. Based on Schefter’s timeframe for return,
it sounds like he could have sustained a high ankle sprain. On the season
Taylor has one interception to go with 13 passes defensed in his 12 games
played this season.
Taylor was replaced by backup cornerback Cortez Allen after
injuring his ankle. The Ravens made a concerted effort to target whichever
receiver Allen was covering, leading to a 30-yard pass interference penalty and
28-yard touchdown pass.
