Browns activate DT Taylor, place Sanford on IR

The SportsXchange

The Cleveland Browns activated defensive tackle Phil Taylor off the physically unable to perform list and signed defensive lineman Ronnie Cameron to the active roster.

Cameron takes the spot of defensive lineman Brian Sanford, who was placed on injured reserve after playing in his first game of the season last week.

Taylor started practicing last week after recovering from pectoral surgery in May.

"I'm probably not going to start," Taylor said earlier this week. "I'll probably be a little limited, but I'm ready to go."

Taylor, the 21st overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, started all 16 games last season and totaled 59 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble.

Cameron was signed by Chicago as an undrafted rookie out of Old Dominion and was claimed by the Browns on waivers on Aug. 14.

"We'll have a rotation in there. We'll cover it up the best we can," Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said about his injury-plagued defense line.

Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi is listed as probable with his hamstring injury.

Shurmur said Massaquoi is "ready to roll," but didn't commit to having him active for Sunday's home game against the Baltimore Ravens.
