Bears coach Matt Nagy tests positive for COVID-19

Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy announced Monday that he tested positive for COVID-19.

It’s a breakthrough case for Nagy, who is fully vaccinated. He said he doesn’t have any symptoms, adding that he found out Monday morning from head trainer Andre Tucker.

Nagy will need to return two negative tests 24 hours apart in order to be able to return to Halas Hall and in time for Sunday’s game against the visiting San Francisco 49ers. He’s conducting meetings via Zoom. Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will run meetings in his absence.

The Bears (3-4) have four players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, including linebacker Caleb Johnson and right tackle Elijah Wilkinson. Those two players went on the list Sunday morning, hours ahead of kickoff in Tampa. Robert Quinn and Jimmy Graham were put on the list last week.

Running back Damien Williams was activated off the reserve/COVID list Saturday after missing a game. He played in the Bears’ 38-3 loss to the Buccaneers.

Receivers coach Mike Furrey missed the team’s Week 6 game but returned Sunday.

Nagy, 43, is 31-24 in three-plus seasons as Bears head coach.
