The Chicago Bears have announced that they have placed a third player on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, tight end Jimmy Graham, who will join running back Damien Williams and outside linebacker Robert Quinn. Wide receivers coach Mike Furrey has also been away from the team due to COVID.
Remember that placement on the Reserve/COVID-19 list does not necessarily mean the player tested positive.
There’s a slight chance Graham could come off in time for Sunday’s game as he is vaccinated, so if he has has two negative tests in a 24 hour span he could return.
If Graham can’t play then expect to see some additional reps for Jesse James and also the TD Machine Jesper Horsted may be involved some too. J.P. Holtz hasn’t played in two weeks, but he is listed as questionable after being a full participant at today’s practice. Starting tight end Cole Kmet is already being talked up as a sneaky play in fantasy football.
It came out yesterday that Williams is not vaccinated so the earliest he could come off the list is Saturday after the mandatory 10 day quarantine. Quinn’s status has yet to be reported on.
The Bears have danced around saying anything specific about the statuses of Robert Quinn and Damien Williams, both on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Matt Nagy wouldn't answer a ? on whether either player might travel separate from the team if there was a possibility to play.— Dan Wiederer (@danwiederer) October 22, 2021
