Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19

  Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19 Vikings offensive lineman Dru Samia has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role. But the Vikings just released Pat Elflein and now find themselves without their top backup at guard. Plus, there is a good chance that there will indeed be high-risk contacts given the nature of O-line/D-line play.

Safety Eddie Jackson was placed on the reserve / COVID - 19 list on Monday afternoon, the team announced. It’s unclear if Jackson tested positive for COVID - 19 or was in close proximity with someone who tested positive. If Jackson tests negative for the virus, he is eligible to come off the list in five

Reliant on their top-tier defense due largely to continued issues at quarterback, the Bears will be without one of that unit’s Pro Bowlers for the time being. Eddie Jackson landed on Chicago’s reserve/COVID-19 list.

The fourth-year safety will be sidelined from practices until he submits two negative coronavirus tests. Several players have re-emerged to play in games after landing on the COVID list during the week, so Jackson — provided he is a close contact and has not tested positive for the virus — has a chance of being available against the Packers on Sunday night.

Raiders to host former first-round pick Vic Beasley

The former Falcons first-round pick did not enjoy a productive stay in Nashville. After not reporting to camp on time, Beasley did not record a sack as a Titan. The Raiders have Clelin Ferrell and Arden Key on their reserve/COVID list.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says that the Chicago Bears have placed safety Eddie Jackson on the reserve / COVID - 19 list .

On Monday, the team placed two-time Pro Bowl safety on their reserve / COVID - 19 list . Jackson will have to test negative throughout the week week if Jackson 's play has helped Chicago's defense rank sixth in the NFL in scoring, second in touchdown passes allowed, and first in third down and red zone

Jackson is the only player currently on the Bears’ virus list, even though offensive lineman Lachavious Simmons spent time on it last week. Safety Deon Bush was on Chicago’s COVID list two weeks ago. Jackson has not missed a game yet this season and has not been sidelined for a contest since the 2018 season.

Once 5-1, the Bears have lost four straight games and are uncertain about who will start at quarterback Sunday. Chicago’s defense will enter the contest ranked third in DVOA; its offense sits 29th.
