Description: Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor is questionable for Sunday's game against Buffalo while trying to get through the NFL's concussion protocol.
Insight: Taylor has not been up to his usual standards, but the Steelers defense is better with him in the lineup than out.

Description: Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor will miss this week's game with Cincinnati, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Bouchette is rarely wrong.
Insight: Pittsburgh is also worried about two other defensive backs, Keenan Lewis and Cortez Allen. With a beat up secondary A.J. Green could have a field day.

Description: Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor will miss this week's game with Dallas. He's dealing with an ankle injury. Though out of the walking boot, his goal is to get back for Week 16.
Insight: Pittsburgh is also worried about two other defensive backs, Keenan Lewis and Cortez Allen. With a beat up secondary, Dallas' receiving corps may be able to take advantage, particularly if Dez Bryant plays as he says he will.

Description: According to Profootballtalk.com, Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor will miss the next 2-to-6 weeks after injuring his right ankle in Sunday's win over Baltimore.
Insight: That's a pretty open-ended timetable but the simple matter is Taylor is going to miss some games. Quarterbacks should have a much easier time picking apart Pittsburgh's secondary with Taylor out. The Steelers' next two opponents are the Chargers and Cowboys.

Description: The Pittsburgh Steelers took a top flight CB off the free agent board today by signing Ike Taylor to a new four-year deal.
SOURCE: CBS SPORTS
Insight: Taylor is now off the board and returns to a top-notch defense that includes LB James Harrison, LB LaMarr Woodley, DE Brett Keisel, S Troy Polamalu, etc. He's always been a good fit for the Steelers, and it's no surprise that he returned (even if he is, by chance, making less money than he could get on the open market).

Description: Although there isn't much substance to it, the Philadelphia Eagles are eyeing pending free agent CB Ike Taylor (Steelers) and RB Reggie Bush, if he is released by New Orleans, once the lockout ends.
Insight: There's likely a lot more smoke than fire to these rumors, but the Eagles love to dabble in free agency so this is something worth keeping an eye on. Free agent WR Plaxico Burress, who also has been linked to the Eagles, is an even more likely candidate, but Philly won't be able to land all three so they have to get their priorities in order.

Description: The Steelers have not offered a contract extension to CB Ike Taylor, who is entering the final year of his deal.
Insight: Expect a bounce back year for Taylor as he plays for a new contract. He should be on the radars of IDP players. (SportsBuff.com)
