LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- After leaving the Bears' game with an ankle injury Monday night, running back Tarik Cohen was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Cohen was forced to leave Chicago's 24-17 win against Seattle didn't return as the team evaluated him. Coach Matt Nagy didn't seem concerned after the game, suggesting it was more of a precautionary measure, and Cohen's health was confirmed by working with the Bears on Wednesday in what was considered a lighter practice.

The second-year back Cohen has rushed nine times for 33 yards while catching four passes for 33 yards this season. He's considered a player to be worked into a hefty role in Nagy's offense.

The Bears had an injury report that was almost entirely clean Wednesday, with only safety DeAndre Houston-Carson (forearm) listed. He was limited in practice, which indicates progress in his rehab from a broken forearm suffered in August.

The Bears (1-1) take the field again Sunday at 3:25 p.m. CT when they face the Cardinals (0-2) in Arizona.
