(KDKA/AP) – Fred Taylor might want to think twice before returning to the Patriots running game this weekend against the Steelers defense.

The often-injured Fred Taylor plans to return after missing five games with two painful toes.

Through the first nine weeks of the NFL, some of the league’s best running backs, like Chad Johnson, have tried to run through or run around the Steelers’ defense only be to unsuccessful.

Taylor returned to practice on Wednesday, but in a limited role. When Taylor is not lined up in the backfield, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead will be filling in for Taylor.
