The Chicago Bears traded Jordan Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles, which could lead to an expanded role for Tarik Cohen.

As he enters his third NFL season, Cohen admitted that losing Howard hurt him.

"I was really following after him as soon as I came to the Bears because I was one year behind him, so he could tell me everything to do because he had already been through it," Cohen said. "Losing him, it hurt me a little bit. I'm not going to lie. It hurt me, because that's like my brother."

Chicago signed Mike Davis to join Cohen in the backfield.
