The Bears’ David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen Injuries Update
David Montgomery is a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Vikings
Running back David Montgomery is a game-time decision in Sunday’s game against the Vikings, the Chicago Bears announced on Thursday. He is listed as questionable on the injury report due to an ankle injury. He hasn’t practiced since Week 3 against the Texans, but he returned to practice on Thursday and Friday. The Bears are hopeful that Montgomery will be ready for Sunday’s game.
He is listed as questionable with an ankle sprain
The Chicago Bears are quiet about injuries, but running back David Montgomery is questionable with an ankle sprain. He has missed two games and is expected to miss at least one more. While Montgomery has not yet been placed on injured reserve, the team wants to give him the full week to recuperate. However, a day or two of limited practice could be enough to clear him for Sunday.
Tarik Cohen remains on the PUP list
After spending his entire career with the Chicago Bears, running back Tarik Cohen has been placed on the PUP list for the season. The injury is related to Cohen’s torn ACL, which he suffered in Week 3 of the 2020 season. While Cohen has yet to pass a physical, the team hopes to have him back in time for the start of the new season. He is listed as 5-foot-6 and 196 pounds. He has some utility as a change-of-pace back, but his status is uncertain at this time.
Chris Penny practiced in full on Friday
Running back Chris Penny practiced in full on Friday, but there’s no telling whether he’ll be ready to start the season. Seattle has a few options at the position, including Chris Carson, the starter last year, C.J. Prosise (a former third-round pick), Mike Davis (a versatile back), and rookie Rashaad Penny. Penny is the team’s first-round pick, but he’s been limited to limited snaps so far. Pete Carroll says he’ll need to “re-assess” Penny’s role in the offense before making the decision to start him.
Rashard Penny is a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Patriots
The Seahawks are evaluating Rashard Penny’s condition. He has been dealing with multiple injuries over the course of his five-year NFL career. Penny is a game-time decision, but his status will likely change before Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
