Bears add another player to COVID-19 list


by - Senior Editor -

This is not good news for an offense trying to get on track.

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy announced on Friday that veteran tight end Jimmy Graham has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Graham has been vaccinated, so it's still possible that he could play on Sunday as he hasn't been ruled out yet.

He would need two negative tests that are 24 hours apart before Sunday's game roster is official.

The Bears should be OK regarding tight ends on Sunday against the Buccaneers as they still have capable players in starter Cole Kmet and backups Jesse James and Jesper Horsted ready to roll.

Graham joins defensive end Robert Quinn, running back Damien Williams, and receivers coach Mike Furry on the COVID-19 list.
