For the past few weeks the Browns coaching staff has made it clear that Tyrod Taylor was going to be the starting QB going into the season.
Nothing’s changed,” Browns head coach Hue Jackson said. “Tyrod Taylor is our starter. Baker Mayfield is a young, talented player that has a bright, bright future.”
New Browns quarterback coach Ken Zampese echoed the third-year head coach.
“He’s our guy and that’s what it is,” Zampese said of Taylor. “To keep bringing it up is the only reason why anybody would put a cloud in anybody’s head. So let’s get on with him being the guy and let’s get on to playing and winning and doing what we are supposed to do and what we are here for.”
It seems like the Browns’ plan to start Tyrod in the first game of the season was derailed tonight when Taylor suffered a brutal looking injury during tonight’s preseason game vs the Eagles.
Tyrod left the game to get checked on but the Internet felt terribly for the Browns QB.
Update: Taylor made his way back to the sidelines.
Update #2 Taylor was somehow able to return to the game.
