Chicago Bears now have three players on COVID-19 list

The Chicago Bears continue to lose players across the roster to the new reserve/COVID-19 list.

Thursday the team announced nose tackle John Jenkins to the list, making him the third player to land on the list joining running back Artavis Pierce and tight end Eric Saubert. 

On Tuesday, nose tackle Eddie Goldman opted out of playing the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns.  Jenkins was anticipated as a strong candidate to replace Goldman’s role on the defensive line.

The Chicago Bears begin the season Sept 13th at Detroit.

Across all of sports, player safety continues to be an issue. Thursday afternoon, Major League Baseball postponed this weekend’s Toronto and Philadelphia series because of concerns about the coronavirus after two Phillies staffers tested positive.

Over a dozen Miami Marlins tested positive for the coronavirus after playing in Philadelphia, prompting the Marlins to quarantine in Philadelphia after playing their series against the Phillies. The Phillies later canceled their series against the New York Yankees.

In Cincinnati Thursday night, cancer survivor Anthony Rizzo went off on MLB for safety concerns after a long rain delay. The Chicago Cubs are finishing a four game series in Cincinnati tonight.
