Despite no losses in the record-setting column during the first three weeks, the Chicago Bears suffered a major loss in Week 3 when Tarik Cohen fell with a knee injury.

The Chicago Bears lost Tarik Cohen in Week 3 and will have to replace him soon.

The Chicago Bears are one of only seven teams that remains unbeaten. When looking at the other teams on the list, the Bears are clearly the weakest link. What do you? That doesn’t matter. Teams can play only their schedules on the deal it was dealt. Even an ugly victory in the NFL is still a win. If the Bears go.500 only the rest of the way, they will see a 9-7 record. Needless to say, the fact that the team remains undefeated is pretty impressive — especially how the three games sprang out.

Some might also say that the Bears lost Mitch Trubisky Sunday, since he was dismissed for Nick Foles. The loss can be viewed as a good thing or bad thing depending on how you see the quarterback position. The thing is all that matters is that the Bears continue to find ways to win. Then the hope is that the team continues to build and finds its way into being a consistent competitor on both offense and defense.

Tarik Cohen saw his snap percentage drop this season. This is relevant since he signed a contract extension today. Cohen played on only 36 percent of Chicago Bears’ offensive snaps during the first three weeks of the season. He has not seen so few snaps since his rookie season. It is possible now that his snap count could have risen, but that’s not happening now with his knee injury. Instead, the Bears will have to find a replacement for Cohen’s snaps.

As of now the Bears claim that they believe they can stay in house to take Tarik Cohen’s snaps. Does this mean the team will more comfortably use Cordarrelle Patterson? Ryan Nall may find his way more frequently into the lineup? What if instead the team Riley Ridley activates and uses the wide receivers instead of Cohen’s receiver role? The other option is activated.

What if the team decides to go outside their home? Here are a few running backs that the team should consider signing if Patterson, Nall and any of the wide receivers fail to meet what the Chicago Bears are needing from Cohen replacements.
