Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor insists that he will return from the broken arm which he sustained in the team's win over the Carolina Panthers.

Ike Taylor has revealed that he plans to return from a fractured arm before the end of the 2014 NFL season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback sustained the injury during the team's 37-19 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, which also saw linebackers Ryan Shazier and Jarvis Jones pick up injuries.

The 34-year-old told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "Ike will be back. Oh, yeah, I will be back. I can't let my teammates down.

"I tried to get my arm out of the way, but it was kind of too late. Right now, I am recovering and I feel good. We are going to see [Wednesday] the [exact] timetable when I am coming back, but right now I am just resting."

It is estimated that Taylor, who has undergone surgery to help repair the bone, will miss six to eight weeks.
