Shark Bites

The Bears and RB Tarik Cohen agreed late Saturday to a 3-year extension worth $17.25 million in new money, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Looks like we can count on at least a couple more years of ho-hum PPR production.

Recent Shark Bites

RB Tarik Cohen ruptured his Achilles while working out on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That figures to cost Cohen, who's currently unsigned, the entire 2022 season. Cohen hasn't played since tearing an ACL in September of 2020. He turns 27 in July and looks like a long shot to make a meaningful fantasy contribution again.

Free agent RB Tarik Cohen suffered an injury while working out in a video streamed live on Instagram. Cohen grabbed his right Achilles upon going down, and the injury appeared serious. We’ll update you when we learn more, but we truly hope that Cohen dodged a bullet here. He missed all of 2021 and most of 2020 with a knee injury.

UPDATE: ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Cohen tore his Achilles.

The Bears are releasing RB Tarik Cohen with an injury designation, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Cohen still isn't able to pass a physical after tearing an ACL in September 2020. We'll see when Cohen is medically cleared and then where he signs, but he's not worth a look in early best-ball drafts.

The Bears placed RB Tarik Cohen on reserve/PUP. In other words, he’ll miss at least the first 6 games of the season. Chicago will move forward with David Montgomery and Damien Williams as the top-2 RBs. Montgomery should dominate the rushing work, with Williams acting as a change-of-pace/receiving back. Montgomery is in play as a mid-to-late Round 3 pick. Williams is a worthy late-round flier.

Bears HC Matt Nagy suggested Tuesday that RB Tarik Cohen is more "weeks away" than "days away" from returning from last September's torn ACL. Nagy added, "I don’t want to put a timeline (on it) ... It’s all going to be day-by-day on how much growth he has or improvement." We're still over 5 weeks away from Chicago's season opener. But it's beginning to look like Cohen will at least be limited to start the season -- if he's out there at all. He's nothing more than a late-round stab in PPR drafts right now. RB David Montgomery would get a boost if Cohen isn't ready come Week 1.
