Two weeks into training camp, the Bears front office erupted into panic after Tarik Cohen disappeared into a couch in Matt Nagy’s office.
“He scared the living daylights out of us,” said the heavily panting head coach. “I mean, we’re counting on this guy to play basically every position on offense.”
Nagy and Cohen were reportedly meeting to discuss the latter’s role in the offense moving forward, when the head coach left the room for a moment. When Nagy returned, Cohen had disappeared. While Nagy feared he could have run off, Jordan Howard came up with idea to check the couch. Moments later, Howard reached in, felt a tug on his arm, and Cohen was rescued.
“That was scary, man. I must have been trapped down there for at least a half hour, maybe more,” said the second year running back out of North Carolina A&T. He continued, “From now on, I better just stick to folding chairs. I think they’re a lot safer.”
“In the end, I’m glad he’s safe,” said Nagy. “Now all we need to do is find Roquan.”
