We finally have some clarity about running back Tarik Cohen’s rehab, but it’s not exactly good news. Cohen will start the 2021 season on the reserve/PUP list, which means he will miss at least the first six games of the season.

Cohen suffered a torn ACL about 11 months ago against the Falcons in Week 3, and he was expected to be ready for training camp. Cohen spent the entirety of camp on the PUP list with no timetable for his return.

Luckily, the Bears have some nice depth at running back with David Montgomery, Damien Williams and Khalil Herbert.

Elsewhere, rookie offensive tackle Teven Jenkins will not be placed on season-ending injured reserve. So Jenkins is part of the 53-man roster, where he’ll go on the in-season IR immediately, allowing him to return at some point this season and giving the Bears an extra roster spot.

Defensive tackle Mario Edwards has also been moved to the reserve/suspended list, where he will serve a two-game suspension to start the season.
