LANDOVER, Md. — Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor broke his thumb in the Steelers' preseason opener Friday night against the Washington Redskins. Coach Mike Tomlin said Taylor could miss two weeks and was uncertain whether surgery would be required.

"I wasn't even like paying attention," Taylor said. "But I just know during that time in the first quarter, I really felt it."

Taylor, who signed a four-year contract last month, left the game after the first series and did not return.
