Bears running back Tarik Cohen said he didn’t see Saints players mock his size when he ran to their sideline late in Sunday’s loss at Soldier Field.

The Saints’ players put their hands a few week above the ground, as if to say he was short.

“I’m not worried about that,” Cohen said. “I’m the league just like they’re in the league.”

Saints coach Sean Payton appeared to say something toward Cohen on the sideline, but the running back said he didn’t hear it. After the game, Cohen said, Payton sought him out to say that “he respects my game.”

Cohen had nine catches for 19 yards and three rushes for 10.
