The Cleveland Browns have been tight-lipped about injuries up until this point. For most players, it hasn't been that big of a deal: guys like RB Terrance West, OG John Greco, TE Gary Barnidge, and DE Billy Winn have already returned to practice after initially being on the non-football injury list to start training camp. One prominent player remains on that list, though, and that would be NT Phil Taylor.
The Browns released an injury report on Friday, and they designated Taylor as having a hamstring injury.

It was reported last week that Winn hurt his hamstring while trying to press too hard to pass the Browns' conditioning case. It's possible the same thing happened with Taylor. Winn returned to practice on Thursday, though, so perhaps we're not too far away from seeing Taylor put the pads on again.
Here is a complete list of the Browns' current injuries:
- WR Chandler Jones (hamstring)
- OL Nick McDonald (wrist)
- OL Randall Harris (knee)
- NT Phil Taylor (hamstring)
- ILB Tank Carder (foot)
- ILB Darius Eubanks (shoulder)
FS Tashaun Gipson left Friday's practice with a knee injury, but there was not an update on his condition.
