Will the Chicago Bears have a running back conundrum on their hands?
After unfortunately losing Tarik Cohen to a torn ACL on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, the Chicago Bears have signed undrafted free agent Artavis Pierce to the 53-man roster. While Pierce is likely meant as a stop-gap, could he potentially put general manager Ryan Pace in an awkward situation?
First, let’s take a step back and look at what Pierce will bring to the table as he attempts to fill in for Cohen. Prior to the start of the season, we identified Pierce as someone the Bears may need to lean on heavily this season. This was primarily because of their perceived lack of depth at the time. Well, that prediction may be starting to come to fruition.
