Chester Taylor: In or Out (What Really Happened) PDF Print E-mail

By Hannah Petrukovich

Remember that lesson our mothers taught us when we were children to not assume anything until we have all the facts. Well, it seems a few people didn’t listen to their mothers. 

The sports reporters arrived at the Bears practice Monday hoping to get the scoop on Chester Taylor being cut from the team. Running back Kahlil Bell was asked his reaction to Taylor being cut and Bell’s response was, “It is always sad to see a fellow running back leave. I wouldn’t say I am happy about it, I don’t think anybody is at the same time I can only control what I can control. All I plan on doing is going out there and doing the best I can do.”

Before I had my chance to write my article about the cut, news broke that Taylor’s agent Ken Sarnoff tweeted, “Here’s a first for me-the Bears just called me and said they have not released Chester. He did talk with Lovie though…misunderstanding?”

Even though a NFL source confirmed earlier Monday that Smith told Taylor that he was no longer in the Bears plans because Barber had been running well.

ESPN reported later Monday afternoon Lovie Smith’s account of what happened.  “I talked to Chester a little bit early on, I guess there was a bit of a misunderstanding on exactly what we talked about,” Lovie said “ Chester Taylor is still part of the team I talked to Chester today about the reasons why he didn’t get any playing time the last game (against the Tennessee Titians on Saturday) and that was that we wanted to take a look at some other players. Evidently he took that the wrong way. Hopefully we get him back out there tomorrow."

Shame on all of us for not listening to our mothers…
