Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor will undergo surgery on his left thumb Tuesday.
Taylor broke his thumb on the second play of the Steelers` 16-7 loss to the Redskins last Friday night.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said after the game that he expected Taylor to miss two to three weeks. Tomlin was evasive after practice today when asked if that timetable has changed or if Taylor will have to wear some sort of cast after he is cleared to practice.
Taylor has been one of the Steelers` most durable players, and it will be a surprise if he isn`t ready for the Sept. 11 opener.
