Cohen (knee - ACL) will be placed on injured reserve Monday. Cohen suffered a season-ending torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Falcons, so his placement on IR was only ever a matter of time. The move leaves Ryan Nall as the top backup to David Montgomery, though Cordarrelle Patterson is a likely candidate to see increased backfield snaps with Cohen out. The Bears may also see fit to promote Artavis Pierce from the practice squad.
Coach Matt Nagy confirmed Monday that Cohen suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Falcons, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Cohen will be placed on season-ending injured reserve in the near future, as he sets his sights on returning to full health for 2021. With Cohen out of the lineup, David Montgomery could see a slight uptick in touches, while Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall are each candidates to handle expanded change-of-pace roles. The 25-year-old inked a fortuitously timed three-year, $17.25 million extension with the Bears earlier this month.
The Bears fear that Cohen tore his ACL during Sunday's win over the Falcons, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Cohen will undergo tests to confirm the severity of his knee injury, but it looks like the Bears will need to to redistribute Cohen's backfield touches behind David Montgomery to some combo of Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall.
Cohen has reen ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Falcons with a knee injury, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Cohen called a fair catch on a punt return, but Falcons RB Brian Hill was pushed and rolled onto Cohen's leg. He left the field in obvious pain, and his day is done. If he's forced to miss any time, Ryan Nall could see an increase in usage behind David Montgomery, and WR Cordarrelle Patterson would likely log some reps in the backfield. Cohen finished the game with two rushes for 21 yards and three receptions on six targets for 20 yards.
Cohen rushed five times for 12 yards and caught his only target for 15 yards in the Bears' 17-13 victory over the Giants on Sunday. Cohen was an afterthought in the Chicago offense, as he saw fewer rushing attempts than Cordarrelle Patterson and fewer targets than David Montgomery. Unless his role in the offense drastically changes, it'll be difficult to use Cohen with confidence when setting fantasy lineups.
