Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, the team announced, leaving his status for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers in question.
Nagy, who is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, said in a news conference he is not feeling any severe symptoms.
Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor is running in-person meetings that Nagy, who is working remotely, cannot attend.
Nagy would need two negative tests at least 24 hours apart to be cleared to return to the team.
Nagy could become the second NFL head coach this season to miss a game after testing positive for COVID-19. The Arizona Cardinals’ Kliff Kingsbury was held out of a Week 6 win over the Cleveland Browns.
