New Bears running back Chester Taylor has shared the backfield before, and he's getting along just fine with Matt Forte.
"I've been through this in Baltimore and Minnesota, with Adrian Peterson and Jamal Lewis. So I know how to work with another back and have depth in the backfield, because it's going to be a long season," Taylor said.
Signed in the offseason, after playing for the Vikings from 2006 to 2009, Taylor said he and Forte have a good relationship.
"We're real good," Taylor said. "We joke on the sideline. We hang out. We text each. I mean, he's a real good guy."
At this point, Forte is expected to start, but Taylor will also get meaningful snaps during the course of the game.
