Head coach Mike Pettine said that though the injury is to Taylor's right knee, it is unrelated to his October arthroscopic surgery in the same knee.
Taylor played four games before the initial injury. He missed four games after the arthroscopic procedure but returned for Cleveland's game against the Bengals last Thursday. He played 23 snaps before exiting with an injury.
The Browns promoted linebacker Keirth Pough from the practice squad to take Taylor's spot on the roster.
