Matt Nagy, Chicago Bears coach, was the latest member to test positive for COVID-19 within the last week.

After Sunday's 38-3 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Nagy announced Monday's positive result.

Nagy stated that this is a reminder to all of us to be cautious and to see where we are at. We've seen it in other leagues and in society, so we're working on that."

Nagy stated that there were no positive tests Monday and that he feels fine despite the diagnosis.

Nagy stated, "I feel pretty good." "It's a routine where you go in every Monday morning, and you follow protocols. It's what we do.

"So, when I received the call from Andre Tucker, our head trainer, this morning, you make sure to be ready. As of right now, no. We are still working with some members of the team. This is a positive sign. It is important that we follow all protocols.

During Nagy's absence, Chris Tabor, Special Teams Coordinator, will manage the team meetings.

All NFL coaches must have a vaccine. Nagy will need to take two negative tests within 24 hours of Nagy's return.

The Bears currently have four players on their reserve/COVID-19 roster, with offensive tackle Elijah Wilkinson as well as linebacker Caleb Johnson.

Other players on the list include tight end Jimmy Graham, and outside linebacker Robert Quinn. Quinn is the second-ranked player on the team with 5.5 tackles.

Before the Bucs game, veteran running back Damien Williams was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 roster.
