Steelers' Ike Taylor on broken arm: 'Ike will be back'

Wednesday September 24th, 2014

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor said he will return this season from a broken arm, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Mark Kaboly reports.

Taylor, 34, broke the radius and ulna bones in his right arm during a collision with teammate Lawrence Timmons' helmet during Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers.

Kaboly reports Taylor is expected miss six to eight weeks with the injury.

“Ike will be back,” Taylor said Tuesday morning on his TribLive Radio Show.
“Right now, I am recovering and I feel good,” Taylor said. “We are going to see (Wednesday) the (exact) timetable when I am coming back, but right now I am just resting.”

Taylor, who has spent his entire 12-year career with the Steelers, had eight tackles and two passes defended during the first three games of the season.

The Steelers are 2-1 and host the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
