Tarik Cohen, a running back for the Chicago Bears, speaks out about his knee injury and recovery.

Tarik Cohen, the Chicago Bears’ running back, hasn’t spoken to the media about his recovery from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 3 of the 2020 season.

Cohen appeared “frustrated,” according to Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times, which is understandable given his situation — it’s clear Cohen wants to be on the field but can’t.
