Running back Chester Taylor didn’t get off the bench against the Titans, not even after Marion Barber left Saturday’s game with a calf injury.
“My running backs coach (Tim Spencer) told me after I came out for pregame that I wasn’t playing,” Taylor told Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune. “He didn’t give me no reason or no excuse or nothing. It can’t be from the competition because it’s hard to get three carries in a preseason game and the other players are getting 13, 14 carries. That’s not comparing anything. It’s not from production and play.”
Taylor seemed pretty upset about not playing Saturday.
“Yeah, I’m disappointed,” he said. “I’m practicing all week thinking I’m going to play. Just for them to come out of the blue and say that, yeah, I’m disappointed.”
