LAKE FOREST, Ill. (CBS) – A published report says the Bears are planning to release backup running back Chester Taylor before next season.

John Mullin of Comcast SportsNet reported that at age 32, Taylor’s arrow is “definitely not pointing up.”

Taylor was signed to a four-year, $12.5 million contract in March 2010, and last season averaged 2.38 yards per carry, which Comcast calls “a dreadful mark.” The Bears have already paid him $7 million, and his base salary for 2011 is expected to be $1.275 million, Comcast reported.

The Bears have not released an official comment on the subject.
