Bears Place OL Elijah Wilkinson On COVID-19 List

The Chicago Bears announced Friday that they’ve placed OL Elijah Wilkinson on the COVID-19 list. 

Wilkinson, 26, wound up going undrafted out of Massachusetts back in 2017. He later signed on with the Broncos, but was waived coming out of the preseason and later re-signed to their practice squad.

Wilkinson played under exclusive rights tenders for two seasons before returning to the Broncos on a one-year, restricted tender worth $3.27 million for the 2020 season last year. The Bears signed him to a contract this past March. 

In 2021, Wilkinson has appeared in 10 games for the Bears, making one start for them at right tackle.
