The Chicago Bears officially placed DE John Jenkins on the COVID-19 list on Thursday.
The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.
Jenkins, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Saints back in 2013. Jenkins spent three years in New Orleans before he was waived during the 2016 season.
From there, Jenkins played for a number of teams including the Seahawks, Giants, Dolphins and Bears. Chicago re-signed him to a one-year deal this past April.
In 2019, Jenkins appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded 34 tackles, one sack and a pass defense.
