Matt Nagy To Coach From Home During Bears Game Against 49ers

CHICAGO (CBS)-- It's still the Chris Tabor show at practice. The Bears special team's coordinator remains in charge while Matt Nagy coaches virtually from home after testing positive for COVID-19. Both Tabor and offensive coordinator Bill Lazor say they haven't given much thought to Nagy possibly not being there Sunday.

"The idea with every player on this football team, from the quarterbacks to the defensive linemen, to the offensive linemen, to me, That's no different. Meaning leading guys that's not a big deal," Tabor said.

On defense, Akiem Hicks is trending towards playing after practicing again, but still no Khalil Mack because of his ailing foot and Robert Quinn, who remains on the COVID list.

It's still football at the end of the day. You know, obviously, the guys are the guys for a reason, but opportunity for somebody else to step up. Nobody's going to feel sorry for us," said Ogletree

Reserve linebacker Caleb Johnson was activated off the COVID list, but a staff member tested positive, so the Bears remain in enhanced protocols meaning their practice schedule was adjusted and more virtual work.
