Former #Bears RB Tarik Cohen was training on Instagram Live and it appears like he suffered a significant lower-leg injury. Won’t post the video here.He’s been through so much as of late in his personal life. He just fully recovered from a 2020 ACL injury. Really hurts to see.

NFL Twitter was quick to offer their condolences and best wishes for Cohen’s speedy recovery.

Cohen was already dealing with the ACL injury suffered in 2020.

An Achilles injury would certainly be a big blow to Cohen’s recovery attempts.

It’s definitely a situation where it looks worse than it actually is.

It appears Cohen had been battling personal matters off the field as well.

Modern medical science does offer some optimism.

@MySportsUpdate Many people recover from an achilles tear, hopefully it’s just a partial rupture and not a full tear with it recoiling. I had mine pop and I fully recovered in 6 months and it was stronger after.

The NFL community will be sending out good vibes for Cohen’s healthy and speedy recovery.

It appeared Cohen immediately knew the severity of the injury.

Playing and staying in the NFL is no easy task.

Sometimes, NFL Twitter isn’t so toxic.

@MySportsUpdate The video is heartbreaking. All the time invested and now this. Best wishes for him.

Hopefully Cohen can return to the football field sooner than later.

@MySportsUpdate It isn’t fair for him to keep going through these obstacles when he’s been through so much already, my thoughts and prayers with him and his family ❤️🙏🏻
