Steven Taylor has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after a post-match assessment revealed the Newcastle United defender ruptured his Achilles tendon during the New Year’s Day draw against Burnley.
The club were fearing the worst when Taylor left St James’ Park on crutches with his foot in a protective boot and a scan later confirmed the full extent of the injury which will require surgery next week. This is the second time during his career Steven Taylor has ruptured his Achilles – the first was back in December 2011 against Chelsea – [although this was on his other leg] an injury which kept him out for over 9 months. In his absence Mike Williamson will be drafted into the back four while caretaker boss John Carver may decide to dip into the transfer market during the January window with Captain Fabricio Coloccini as the only other recognised out-an-out central defender.
