The COVID list is getting a little crowded for the Chicago Bears.

Tight end Jimmy Graham is the latest player to be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, head coach Matt Nagy announced on Friday.

Graham joins outside linebacker Robert Quinn, running back Damien Williams, and receivers coach Mike Furrey, who remain on the list, per Nagy.

Graham, who is vaccinated, must test negative for COVID-19 twice within 24 hours apart before he can rejoin the team. Because of the timing, he will be out for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The veteran tight end has been used sparingly this year, totaling just one catch for 11 yards through six games, though he’s seen work as a blocker in the run game.

With Graham out, Cole Kmet, Jesse James, J.P. Holtz and Jesper Horsted are the remaining healthy tight ends. Holtz is questionable with a quad injury, but is expected to return to action.

The Bears take on the Buccaneers at 3:25 p.m. CT on Sunday.
