stringers in the preseason, Septem

The Bears found a lot of ways to use running back Tarik Cohen last season and that creativity paid off with 1 ,169 yards from scrimmage, an average of 12.5 yards per punt return and eight touchdowns.Chicago’s offseason saw Jordan Howard get traded to the Eagles while Mike Davis and David Montgomery arrived to flesh out the backfield. Cohen said in June that he doesn’t expect those changes to impact the way the team uses him in 2019, but comments from head coach Matt Nagy on Tuesday suggest things could look somewhat different.“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 . “And when you mentally drain them , it pulls them back physically.”Cohen only had four touches in the team’s playoff loss to the Eagles and Nagy said that was “not enough,” so there’s a balancing act to do with making sure the team is getting the most out of Cohen without overtaxing him. Given Nagy’s aversion to playing first-stringers in the preseason, September 5 will likely be the first chance to see how that balance is working out in Chicago. Given how long he’s been in New England , there aren’t a lot of firsts left for the Patriots under Bill Belichick but they crossed one of the list on Thursday night.The Patriots took a wide receiver in the first round of the draft for the first time in the Belichick era when they made N'Keal Harry the 32nd and final pick of the night. 1996 draft choice Terry Glenn was the last first-round wideout in New England.“It means the world to me,” Harry said. “For him to have that much faith in me and to have that much trust in me, it just makes me want to work that much harder. So , I’m going to come in with a workhouse mindset and get better every day.”Harry added that he’s “ecstatic” to get a chance to play with quarterback Tom Brady as the Patriots move into a future without tight end Rob Gronkowski to serve as a primary offensive piece.
