All three Chicago Bears’ coordinators are away from the team facility Thursday and in COVID-19 protocols.

Head coach Matt Nagy said offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, defensive coordinator Sean Desai and special teams chief Chris Tabor have been sidelined. Nagy himself missed Chicago’s Week 8 game against San Francisco after testing positive for COVID-19.

None of the assistants have been ruled out for Chicago’s game against visiting Minnesota (6-7) on Monday night. The Bears are 4-9.

Nagy said all meetings will be held virtually Thursday.

In addition to having at least four players on the COVID-19 list, Nagy said the team is battling non-COVID-19 illnesses, too.
