Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen (knee) is 'weeks away' from being activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to comments made by head coach Matt Nagy on Tuesday, Aug. 3.
Huddle Up: It appears as though Cohen is not a lock for the regular-season opener, which should give David Montgomery and Damien Williams a slight bump early in the season. The absence of a more definite timeline is troubling, but he should return to his usual satellite role when he is ready. Until then, fantasy managers can feel confident about locking Montgomery in as a high-end RB2.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen (knee) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, July 25.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if Cohen will be ready for the start of the regular season. He likely will see a handful of touches each game and could be a possible flex option against certain opponents.

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace indicated he is 'hopeful' that RB Tarik Cohen (knee) will be ready for training camp. Cohen tore his ACL in September and missed the remainder of the 2020 season.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a torn anterior cruciate ligament Tuesday, Sept. 29. The Bears signed Artavis Pierce from the practice squad to fill his spot on the roster.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen (knee) was diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Cohen signed a three-year extension just over a week ago after never missing a game through his first three-plus seasons as a pro. His absence will presumably open the door for David Montgomery to serve as a feature back in this offense, although Chicago could easily ask Cordarrelle Patterson to take on some of Cohen's passing-down work.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen (knee) is feared to have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the Week 3 game, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: Cohen's official diagnosis should come in the next day or two, but it looks like he will miss the rest of the season. David Montgomery probably will receive even more touches with Cohen sidelined and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option most weeks.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 12 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants while adding a catch for 15 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Cohen, fresh off a contract extension, didn't do much in this one. He and Cordarrelle Patterson filled in when David Montgomery went down with a neck ailment, but the starter was able to return. The Bears like Cohen a lot, but fantasy owners should be a lot less attached to him.

The Chicago Bears agreed to a three-year contract extension with RB Tarik Cohen Sunday, Sept. 20. The deal is worth at least $17.25 million in new money (at $5.75 million annually) but could be worth at least $18.25 million (at $6.093 million annually).
Huddle Up: Cohen is coming off an underwhelming performance in the season opener versus the Detroit Lions, when he only had two receptions and gained just 47 total yards. He is still worthy of consideration as a flex option for Week 2's game against the New York Giants, especially in larger PPR leagues, because he should see a decent amount of playing time.
