TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have bolstered their depleted running back corps by signing veteran Chester Taylor.

The Cardinals were waiting for other teams to make roster cuts to find a backup to starter Beanie Wells after promising rookie Ryan Williams went down with a season-ending knee injury. Taylor, a 10-year NFL veteran, was released by the Chicago Bears on Saturday.

Arizona also added a pair of cornerbacks on waiver claims: Crezdon Butler from Pittsburgh and Korey Lindsey from Cincinnati.

To make room, the Cardinals released tight end Stephen Spach, linebacker Quan Sturdivant and defensive end Ronald Taley.
