| Bears place Damien Williams on Covid-19 list|
Khalil Herbert could get the start at RB for Chicago

FFToday's Take: In order for Williams to play this week, he'll need at least two negative tests 24 hours apart which seems unlikely. We could see Khalil Herbert get the start for the Bears this week against the Packers. If so, he'll be a volume-based RB2 in Week 6.
| David Montgomery out 4-5 weeks|
Damien Williams will be new lead back for Bears
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 5, 9:47 am
|Dan Graziano (@DanGrazianoESPN) on Twitter: "Per source, tests showed Bears RB David Montgomery has a knee sprain that’s expected to keep him out 4-5 weeks. Not season-ending, but Bears will be without their starting RB for a while."
This means that Damien Williams, who has a bruised thigh but isn't in doubt to play Week 5, will shoulder most of the RB duties in Montgomery's stead. (Twitter/ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: After Montgomery and Damien Williams it's just rookie Khalil Herbert and Tarik Cohen, who's on IR. The Bears could add another live body for practice reps and possible Week 5 activation, but there's no word on when Cohen will be activated.
| David Montgomery avoids ACL injury, further testing today|
May miss some time
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 4, 9:32 am
|Bears don’t believe RB David Montgomery tore his ACL, but they are doing further testing today to determine the extent of the injury, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We'll have to wait on the diagnosis to get an idea on Montgomery's timeline, but is seems like Damien Williams (thigh bruise) will see an increase in value in the coming days. Rookie Khalil Herbert also got some playing time yesterday after Montgomery went down.
| Tarik Cohen weeks away from returning to action|
Coming off ACL injury
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 3, 11:58 am
|Asked if timeline for Tarik Cohen returning from PUP list and ACL injury would be days, weeks or months, Matt Nagy said: "I would lean more toward weeks for him. I don’t want to put a timeline (on it)." Nagy added: "That is very general for me. It’s all going to be day-by-day on how much growth he has or improvement. Every single day Tarik is in that training day. Every day. Days off. I just feel like he is doing everything he can to get that thing right." (Brad Biggs on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Cohen's current ADP is hovering around 11.09, RB51 range as he sits on the PUP list. His injury occurred in Week 3 of last season. Expect more fantasy owners to take a late-round flier on Damien Williams in the coming weeks.
