The Chicago Bears received some much needed good news today. The team announced that they are activating three players off the COVID-19 list.
As a result, Elijah Wilkinson, Christian Jones, and Patrick Scales will return to the team when practice resumes on Tuesday. This comes after all three landed on the COVID-19 list last week. Additionally, Eddie Goldman still remains on the list and has not been activated.
Nevertheless, the Bears will receive a much needed boost to their roster. The once depleted roster was down twenty-four players during training camp, including seven on the offensive line. Thus, the return of Wilkinson provides much needed help immediately.
Hopefully, for the Bears, this is the beginning of a flurry of good news on the health front. Surely they need it heading into their first preseason game.
