Steven Taylor is in Rafa Benitez's doghouse and the center back may not see the pitch again this season.
Taylor has technically been ruled out for tomorrow's game against Swansea City because of the knock that he picked up last weekend against Southampton that saw him substituted at halftime. Benitez has not let the apparent injury conceal his true feelings about Taylor's performance since the manager took charge though, and Taylor looks to have been frozen out of the picture for the remainder of the season. Jamal Lascelles will partner Chancel Mbemba over the weekend and, should he finally return to fitness, Fabricio Coloccini can be called upon to fill the role. With time running out for the Magpies to stave off relegation, the manager needed to send a message and it looks as if Taylor is the symbol of that message. Apr 15 - 2:12 PM
