COVID-19 continues to spread throughout Halas Hall. Matt Nagy announced on Friday that they placed Jimmy Graham on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Graham has previously told the media that he is vaccinated, meaning he tested positive for the virus.
While Nagy said he doesn’t know whether or not Graham is officially out for Sunday, we can rule him out since there’s not enough time for him to return two negative tests, 24 hours apart, before the game roster is set.
Graham joins Damien Williams, Robert Quinn and wide receivers coach Mike Furrey in the COVID-19 protocol.
He hasn’t crossed the 40% snap count threshold in any game this season, and has been held to one catch for 11 yards this year. With Graham out, the Bears will turn to Jesse James and Jesper Horsted, behind Cole Kmet.
