Taylor (quadriceps) isn't participating in the start of OTAs, John Keim of ESPN reports.
Taylor, who's recovering from a severe quad injury, resumed running and doing defensive line drills last month, but the coaching staff is evidently being cautious with his return to action. The oft-injured lineman should be on the field in time for training camp, if not sooner.
Taylor, who went down last August, is working his way back from a severe quadriceps injury in which his muscle tore off the bone. It sounds like he's made significant progress in his recovery, but there isn't a clear timeline for when he'll receive full medical clearance.
Taylor was slated to be the Redskins starting nose tackle last season after an impressive training camp, but the veteran tore his left quadricep in a preseason match with the Bengals and landed on injured reserve for the remainder of the year. If he can return to full strength, the 30-year-old should have an opportunity to compete for the starting role once again, with Ziggy Hood and Stacy McGee also vying for the spot atop the depth chart.
Taylor (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
This will be the third consecutive season where Taylor doesn't play a regular season snap. He last played five games for Cleveland in 2014, making 10 tackles.
Taylor (quadriceps) will miss the 2017 season, John Keim of ESPN reports.
Taylor underwent an MRI on Monday and evidently didn't receive good news. This is an unfortunate development for the 2011 first-rounder, who was trying to resuscitate his career after not having played since 2014.
