Last year we saw Tarik Cohen step up and take on a huge role in the Chicago Bears offense which eventually pushed Jordan Howard out of town.
He registered 444 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns along with 725 receiving yards on 71 receptions which included five receiving touchdowns.
It was a lot of usage and maybe a bit too much as he only received four touches during the team's playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Physical fatigue? Mental fatigue?
Either way, it seems head coach Matt Nagy is ready to tone down Cohen's usage.
“We moved [Cohen] around a lot last year, and I do feel like there was a time — probably later in the season — where we probably gave him a little bit too much,” Nagy said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “And when you mentally drain them, it pulls them back physically.”
While Cohen will likely see a lot of snaps, his actual touches might take a hit with Mike Davis and David Montgomery around.
