Certainly good news, at least for now, but the team is doing further testing Monday to determine the extent of the injury, per Schefter's source. Williams looks like he would log the most work assuming Monty misses some time and is a must pick-up this week if he's on your wire. With Cohen out, Herbert would be next up.
Back in early August we reported there was no exact time frame for Cohen's return, but HC Matt Nagy suggested it would more like weeks vs. days. Turns out it will be several more weeks. Montgomery and Williams should handle a bulk of the work with Cohen out.
No exact time frame as to when RB Tarik Cohen will return, but Matt Nagy suggested more like “weeks away” as opposed to “days away” (from returning).

Also, there's no guarantee he’d be thrown right back into punt returning when he does get back, the tweet went on to say. The Bears will role with Montgomery and Williams, and Williams is certainly capable of at least taking over the third down and pass catching role Cohen usually occupies.

Bears RB David Montgomery (wrist) practiced fully Wednesday. Montgomery should see extra work in the passing game with Tarik Cohen out for the year.
