Comes up positive for COVID Whitehair tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday and placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as a result, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Impact There have now been two Chicago offensive linemen to test positive for COVID, though the absence of Whitehair, a 2018 Pro Bowl participant, would be a loss far more significant than that of Jason Spriggs. Whitehair has started seven of eight games thus far this season for Chicago, but he will miss Sunday's matchup against Detroit if his positive result is confirmed. The Bears had to get by without Whitehair last week against New Orleans as he dealt with a calf injury, thrusting Sam Mustipher into a starting role at center.
