Taylor wasn't at practice, according to reports today, because of a concussion, but the Browns were likely moving to Mayfield regardless as he led them to a come-from-behind win over the Jets last Thursday night.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, quarterback Tyrod Taylor is not on the practice field with the rest of the team today, after suffering a concussion in last Thursday’s game against the Jets.
When asked what impressed him about training camp, Browns coach Hue Jackson singled out his new starting quarterback.
"I would be remiss if I did not say Tyrod Taylor and what he has done on this football team since the day that he walked in the building at practice, his leadership, how he has conducted himself here and trying to do everything he can to get this organization winning," Jackson said.
The team seems happy Taylor has brought some stability to the position that has seen the franchise start 28 QBs since 1999. Eventually, Mayfield is expected to take over, but so far the Browns have not strayed from their plan of starting Taylor this season.
