But aside from special teams player Johnson Bademosi (concussion) being ruled out for the game against the Texans, the team is relatively healthy.

An exception could be safety Tashaun Gipson (concussion), who is questionable. The probables are defensive end Desmond Bryant (wrist), wideout Andrew Hawkins (thigh/knee), linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) and defensive tackle Billy Winn (toe).

Browns pick up option on Phil Taylor


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/2/2014) The Browns on Friday exercised the fifth-year option on defensive lineman Phil Taylor ’s rookie contract. Taylor is now under contract through the 2015 season.

"It's very evident to us watching on tape and seeing him in person this week that Phil Taylor is very explosive, and he's a great fit for what we want to do on defense," said coach Mike Pettine. "I like his ability to rush the passer and be there to clog up the middle at the point of attack when we need him."

Taylor, the 21st overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, has appeared in 39 games with 38 starts. He has registered 130 tackles, seven sacks, two passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

In 2013, Taylor played and started 15 games at nose tackle in the Browns' 3-4 defense after transitioning from defensive tackle. He recorded 57 tackles, two sacks and one pass defensed, helping Cleveland finish ninth in the NFL in total defense, the team's best finish since 1994.
