Eddie Goldman among trio of Bears put on COVID-19 list
Chicago defensive lineman Eddie Goldman was among a trio of Bears placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.
Cornerback Artie Burns and rookie outside linebacker Sam Kamara were also placed on the list. The three join Elijah Wilkinson and defensive end Mario Edwards Jr., both placed on the list Monday.
The Bears are one of seven NFL teams thus far in the enhanced COVID-19 mitigation protocols. Meetings are held virtually, and all tiered personnel must wear masks indoors, among other measures.
It’s Goldman’s second time in COVID-19 protocols. He was placed on the list during training camp. Goldman sat out the 2020 season due to concerns about the coronavirus. He has 18 tackles in 10 games (seven starts).
Burns has started the past three games. He has 17 tackles and two passes defensed overall in eight games this season.
The Bears (4-9) host NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings (6-7) on Monday Night Football in Week 15.
