Could Chester Taylor get more carries?

Chicago Tribune - [Full Article]

RB Chester Taylor refused to reiterate Brett Favre's statement about being underused.

"I can't say nothing about it now. I'm not there,'' he said. "I can't do anything about it now. I just do what I can as a Chicago Bear.''

Some would say Taylor hasn't been utilized as expected here, either. Through eight games, the ninth-year veteran has 65 touches — 68 less than starter Matt Forte. Taylor had just 19 carries through the first four games before the Bears decided to make him the short-yardage back. He has had 35 carries in the last four contests, including a season-high 18 at Carolina.

Offensive coordinator Mike Martz sounded willing to increase Taylor's role Sunday because of the game's personal significance to Taylor.

"It's a special game for him, and we want to make that special for him as well,'' Martz said.
