Tyrod Taylor provides update after preseason injury scare
Tyrod Taylor landed awkwardly on his hand after throwing a pass in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and there was some concern at first that he may have suffered a significant injury. However, there have been no indications that he is in danger of missing Week 1.
Following the Cleveland Browns’ bizarre 5-0 win, Hue Jackson said X-rays on Taylor’s hand were negative despite the coach being “very concerned” at first. On Friday, Taylor delivered even more good news when he tweeted that he is “doing well.”
Thanks for the prayers Cleveland I’m doing well. Come meet me later @XHIBITION_ at 6:30pm.

Taylor’s left wrist appeared to bend back in a painful manner, but it was a good sign that returned to the game not long after the first-quarter injury. There’s no way the Browns would have risked putting him back into the game in the preseason unless everything looked fine.
Jackson has said throughout the offseason that Taylor is Cleveland’s unquestioned starter, and there’s no reason to think the hand injury will change that.
