Former Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen, who was injured during a live practice Tuesday afternoon, reportedly ruptured his right Achilles tendon.
Cohen, who hasn’t played in the NFL since tore his ACL in Week 3 of the 2020 season, was streaming a workout on IG Live Tuesday when he suffered a catastrophic leg injury.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, that leg injury was a ruptured Achilles tendon:
Cohen, a fourth-round pick by the Bears in 2017, didn’t play at all last season as he continued to rehabilitate from the torn ligament he suffered in a Week 3 game during the 2020 campaign.
In 51 career games with the Bears, Cohen rushed for 1,101 yards and scored five rushing touchdowns while catching 209 passes for 1,575 yards and nine touchdowns.
The Bears released Cohen in March, and he had yet to sign with another NFL team prior to his injury.
Some of Cohen’s former teammates, including Kyle Long, sent their best wishes after his injury:
