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.

Alan Pardew has labeled Newcastle defender Steven Taylor a "big doubt" when the Magpies square off against Queens Park Rangers tomorrow.

With Fabricio Coloccini already out, the center back situation at St. James' Park will not be ideal for Alan Pardew, with Paul Dummett likely shifting over from his normal fullback role to compensate. Mike Williamson would be the only natural center back choice in the senior team. The situation will create some budget options from an in-form side, but the shuffling in the back will take a hit to their clean sheet chances.

Steven Taylor has been battling a hamstring injury, but is back in training and may be needed for Newcastle's derby match against Sunderland.

Newcastle has Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa suspended after his red card against Liverpool, and captain Fabricio Coloccini is a doubt with a groin injury. Steven Taylor will likely partner Mike Williamson, though in an emergency Mathieu Debuchy could play in the center as he did last weekend after Yanga-Mbiwa was sent off.

Steven Taylor swung an arm at Sergio Aguero and saw straight red minutes before halftime as Manchester City leads Newcastle 2-0.

Newcastle immediately brought in left-back Paul Dummett, with Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa moving to his preferred central defense. Dummett may be a nice fantasy play, with Davide Santon still coming back from injury, and Newcastle facing West Ham, Fulham, and Aston Villa over the length of Taylor's inevitable three-match ban.

Marseille have a "genuine" interest in Newcastle center back, Steven Taylor.

Taylor is a local lad, and Newcastle need to hold on to him as a club talisman as well as an experienced Premier League campaigner. On the other hand, manager Alan Pardew has been open about the need to bring height into the club, and center back would be a natural position for that change. However, it might be Taylor's partner, Fabricio Coloccini who could make way for any new defenders. He was linked with a move back to Argentina for family reasons for much of last season.
