Listed at 5-foot-6, Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen is one of the shortest players in the NFL.
The New Orleans Saints made sure to remind him of that fact.
Late in the fourth quarter of the Saints' Week 7 victory over Chicago, Cohen caught a pass in the flat before being brought down by New Orleans safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson.
To Cohen's credit, he did show off some impressive balance and power before going down. He appeared to get up talking some trash (which is rarely a good idea when you're down 26 points), which triggered the 5-foot-11 Gardner-Johnson and the 6-foot-1 Eli Apple to remind him of where he stands—literally:

It's been a tough 2019 season so far for Cohen, who's totaled just 165 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown after having a breakout 2018 campaign.
Meanwhile, the Saints are riding high at 6-1.
