Patriots Re-Sign RB Chris Taylor

The New England Patriots announced that they have re-signed running back Chris Taylor.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Taylor, who entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out Indiana University with the Houston Texans in 2006, originally signed with the Patriots last August, carrying the ball five times for 27 yards, while adding one catch for 10 yards and a 22-yard kick return during the pre-season.

A shoulder injury in the pre-season finale landed Taylor on injured reserve.

Taylor has appeared in 7 NFL games, all with the Texans between the 2006 and 2008 seasons. Taylor has 42 carries for 160 yards and a rushing touchdown, as well as 3 receptions for 40 yards out of the backfield. The 6-0, 222-pound running back has also return one kickoff for 17 yards, and has been credited with four special teams tackles during an NFL career that has been marred by injuries the last three years.

In addition to missing all of last season with a shoulder injury, Taylor spent the entire 2007 season on injured reserve with a knee injury, and his 2008 season was cut short by a quadriceps injury.
