Cohen was being harassed by Saints defensive backs Eli Apple and C.J. Gardner-Johnson. Both players were gesturing at the running back’s height after a play late in the game. The Saints were up 36-10 with under 5 minutes to play.
While the Saints seemed pretty confident, the Bears made it a close game with less than 3 minutes to play in the game. Mitchell Trubisky threw a touchdown pass to Allen Robinson and then completed a 2-point conversion to make the game 36-18.
After recovering an onside kick, Trubisky then found Javon Wims for a 6-yard score and cut the Saints’ lead to 11 points with less than 1 minute to play.
New Orleans would end up holding off Chicago and win the game, 36-25.
Apple, one of the players who mocked Cohen, ended up injuring his knee with less than a minute to play in the game.
It’s unclear what Apple did to his knee. Conflicting reports range from a hyperextended knee to a torn ACL.
The 5-foot-6 Cohen finished the game with 10 rushing yards and 19 receiving yards in the game. He addressed the taunts after the game, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
“I’m not worried about that,” he said. “I’m in the league just like they’re in the league.”
