Nagy is high-risk close contact, will coach virtually during rookie minicamp

While the Bears rookies will be at Halas Hall this weekend for rookie minicamp, head coach Matt Nagy will not.

Nagy is a high-risk close contact to someone in his family who tested positive for COVID-19, according to a report from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Nagy will participate in rookie minicamp virtually. All meetings at this time are being held virtually anyway. Per Rapoport, Nagy is in the process of being vaccinated but isn’t fully vaccinated at this time.

The Bears have three practices scheduled for rookie minicamp on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Following Sunday’s practice, the Bears don’t have another in-person practice until OTAs begin on May 25.
