Tarik Cohen ruptured his Achilles tendon during Instagram Live workout

Former Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen suffered a torn Achilles tendon during a training session streamed on Instagram Live.

On Tuesday, May 17, the former Chicago Bears running back streamed a training session on Instagram Live while recovering from a cruciate ligament tear. During practice, Cohen fell and grabbed the back of his leg. Hours later, the diagnosis was confirmed.

According to ESPN senior NFL insider Adam Schefter, an MRI confirmed Cohen tore his Achilles tendon, meaning the free agent back may be sidelined for the entirety of the upcoming season.

Former Bears RB Tarik Cohen tears his Achilles tendon during training

Cohen has not played an NFL game since Week 3 of the 2020 season when the Bears defeated the Atlanta Falcons 30-26. Cohen suffered a cruciate ligament tear in that game, causing him to miss the rest of the year and all of 2021 with complications in his recovery.

Cohen joined the NFL in 2017 as a fourth-round pick from North Carolina A&T. Perhaps his best season with Chicago came in 2018, where he led the league with 33 punt returns for 411 yards. He also rushed for 444 yards and three touchdowns and caught 71 passes for 725 yards and five touchdowns. As a result, he was named a First-Team All-Pro and a Pro Bowler.

During his four years with the Bears, Cohen rushed for 1,101 yards and five touchdowns on 264 carries while catching 209 of 275 goals for 1,575 yards and nine touchdowns. Cohen returned 96 punts for 985 yards and 30 kicks for 628 yards.

It’s brutal news for Cohen as he is now likely to miss the entirety of the upcoming season.
