Ken Whisenhunt unsure of Taylor’s exact role
Former Chicago Bears running back Chester Taylor should be starting practice Tuesday, but Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he has yet to decide how he will use the veteran running back.
“We’ll get him in here and figure out what his role will be, but I know as far as, whether he’s a third down back or first or second back, those are all roles that he’s done in games and done very well,” Whisenhunt said of Taylor’s flexibility.
While his role is still undefined, Whiz said that Taylor’s experience will work to his advantage as he prepares to join a team less than a week before the start of the regular season.
“He’ll understand how to study and prepare,” Whisenhunt said.
The Cardinals are hoping that Taylor will add depth to the running back slot and will also mentor some of the younger players, Whisenhunt said.
