Bears Place Tarik Cohen On PUP

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears have placed running back Tarik Cohen on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, and indication that Cohen’s recovery from a torn ACL is taking a bit more time than anticipated.

The Bears made the announcement on Sunday and it appears that the news puts Cohen’s status for Week 1 up in the air.

Cohen has dealt with some injuries since a monster 2018 season in which he clocked in 1,169 yards from scrimmage while scoring 8 touchdowns. In his absence, the Bears have turned to David Montgomery, who was taking more reps even while Cohen was healthy.
