Early speculation is that he may have suffered an Achilles injury.
Former #DaBears RB Tarik Cohen
Appears to have suffered an acute Achilles tear.
Best case scenario is 9-12 months (think James Robinson).
Hate to say it, but for RBs, especially one coming off an ACL, this could be career ending.

The 26-year-old Cohen tore his ACL and MCL in Week 3 of the 2020 season and went on to suffer a tibial plateau fracture which sidelined him for the entirety of the 2021 season. Cohen was using Instagram live workouts this offseason to convince a team to sign him before the start of next season.
