Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor officially has a torn pectoral muscle and will miss significant time, coach Pat Shurmur told Cleveland reporters Friday.

Taylor is scheduled for surgery next week, Shurmur said. The Browns will likely turn to one of two rookies (Billy Winn or John Hughes), or returning backup Scott Paxson.

Taylor, the 21st overall pick of the 2011 draft, started all 16 games as a rookie and finished seventh on the team with 59 tackles. He also recorded four sacks and a forced fumble.
