Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune says the Chicago Bears could have some COVID-19 issues heading into Sunday’s game against the Titans:
Sounds like #Bears might have more COVID-19 issues than just OT Jason Spriggs, who tested positive, and RG Germain Ifedi, who has been sidelined because of close contact. Stay tuned to see what shakes out as the day progresses.— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) November 5, 2020
Jason Spriggs tested positive on Tuesday. He is out for the game on Sunday. There is a chance that Germain Ifedi could play against the Titans if he tests negative all week and doesn’t show any symptoms.
The NFL has quite a few COVID related issues floating around this week. The 49ers and Packers are playing in a game tonight where it seems like half of both rosters is on the COVID list.
Matthew Stafford was added to the COVID list yesterday because of a close contact with someone outside of the team that has COVID.
We knew that other teams would have COVID issues before the season was over. I still hate that the Titans were the first, but hopefully they got their stuff out of the way early and won’t have any more issues. Knock on wood.
