Bears currently have all three coordinators in COVID-19 protocol

·1 min read

The Bears have been hit hard by COVID-19 headed into their matchup with the Vikings on Monday.

Recently, Chicago had to put all three of its coordinators through COVID-19 protocol. The Bears said in a statement that the three coordinators will quarantine away from Halas Hall — Chicago’s practice facility — and participate in team meetings exclusively on a virtual basis.

What does that mean for the Bears? Well, if OC Bill Lazor, who has had the play-calling duties recently, cannot make the game, then Nagy will likely be the one running the offense on Monday night.

Nagy’s tenure as an offensive play-caller in Chicago has gotten mixed reviews to say the least. Nagy’s stock rose as offensive coordinator for the Chiefs when he called the offense’s plays. That helped him earn the Bears head coaching gig in the first place. Now, though, Nagy’s ability to call plays in the league has been called into question. Just ask all these Bears fans.

Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer remains the defensive play caller of the Vikings. Those two possibly clashing in one phase of the game is certainly an interesting matchup to watch in Week 15.
