No word about how long Steeler top cornerback Ike Taylor will be out, but all indications are it could be a couple of weeks.

Reports say that Taylor is expected to miss three to six weeks after injuring his right ankle vs the Ravens. He was seen in a boot in the second half on the sidelines.

Taylor this season has a pick and 13 passes defensed in 12 games. He had a MRI Monday on the injured ankle.

For the Steelers, no Taylor means that Cortez Allen will have to step it up and fill the void. Versus the Ravens, Allen was hit for a long 30-yard pass interference penalty, and he also allowed the 28-yard touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin.

Allen and the rest of the D did recover to have a good enough second half and third quarter to hold off the Ravens for the 23-20 win.
