The Chicago Bears announced Monday that they’ve placed S Eddie Jackson on the COVID-list.
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.
Jackson, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bears back in 2017. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $3.067 million contract when he agreed to a four-year, $58.4 million extension with the Bears this offseason.
In 2020, Jackson has appeared in 10 games for the Bears and recorded 58 tackles, no interceptions, three forced fumbles, a recovery, a defensive touchdown and two passes defended.
