Tarik Cohen Ruptured Achilles During Workout on Instagram Live, per Report

Free-agent running back Tarik Cohen underwent an MRI on Tuesday, confirming that he ruptured his Achilles during a workout that same day, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter

Cohen was streaming his workout on Instagram Live when the injury occurred. 

This injury isn’t a good sign for Cohen as he is currently a free agent after the Bears released him in March with an injury designation. At the time, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that he was unable to pass a physical. 

Cohen hasn’t played since Week 3 of 2020 when he tore his ACL when playing for Chicago against the Falcons. His original plan was to return for the 2022 season, but that seems unlikely now.

In his first three seasons with the Bears from 2017–19, Cohen tallied 1,027 rushing yards and five touchdowns. He was a dual threat as a receiver, finishing those three seasons with 203 receptions for 1,534 yards and nine touchdowns.
