Browns rule QB Tyrod Taylor out with a concussion

As if his night wasn’t going great in the first place, Cleveland Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor is now dealing with a concussion.

The former Pro Bowler exited Thursday’s game against the New York Jets with a head injury after slamming it on the turf. Almost immediately, Taylor was placed into the concussion protocol.

Prior to the start of the third quarter, Cleveland ruled its starting quarterback out for the remainder of the game.

Rookie No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield replaced Taylor under center and ultimately led Cleveland to its first points of the game. Mayfield’s presence in the game was something Browns fans had been demanding.

Having exited the game down 14-0, Taylor finished his night having completed 4-of-14 passes for negative net passing yards.
