The Chicago Bears officially placed WR DeAndre Carter on the COVID-19 list 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.
Carter, 27, originally signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State back in 2015. He lasted just a few months in Baltimore before he was waived coming out of the preseason.
Carter had brief stints with the Raiders, Patriots and 49ers before signing on with the Eagles in 2018. He was on and off of the Eagles’ roster last season before eventually being claimed by the Texans.
Houston re-signed Carter to a contract extension this past March, but was waived last month and later claimed by the Bears.
In 2020, Carter has appeared in 11 games for the Texans and Bears, catching one pass for eight yards. He has also totaled 250 kick return yards and another 96 punt return yards.
