Tarik Cohen really wanted a team to call his own in 2022, but it appears that won’t happen after he seemingly suffered a terrible injury.
While on Instagram Live, the former Chicago Bears running back was showing off his workout when things went incredibly wrong as a pop could be heard and he would fall to the ground.
He has been through a lot over the years.
Cohen’s twin brother Tyrell also was killed in May of 2021. He was found dead at a Duke Power substation in Raleigh, North Carolina after being electrocuted.
Shortly after signing a four-year, $17.25 million contract extension with the Bears in 2020, he would only appear in three NFL since then.
Cohen tore his ACL in 2020. After playing in 51 consecutive games, Cohen would go on to miss the next 30 games the Bears would play. He was never activated at any point in 2021. Cohen, who’s now 26, earned Pro Bowl honors and was an All-Pro return man in 2018. He rushed for 1,101 yards and had 209 catches for 1,575 yards across four seasons in Chicago.
Hopefully, he can recover from this and start his NFL career over fully healthy.
