  • Bears' Elijah Wilkinson: Activated off COVID-19 list

    The Bears activated Wilkinson (Illness) off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

    Wilkinson was placed in protocols due to a positive test and has been absent from the team facility for three weeks. It's unclear if he will be able to ramp up his conditioning fast enough to be active for Monday's contest against the Vikings, but if he's available, he will be a candidate to start at left tackle, as Jason Peters (ankle) is doubtful and Teven Jenkins (non-COVID illness) is questionable.

  • Bears' Elijah Wilkinson: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Wilkinson (illness) was placed on the COVID-19 list Friday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    This is the third time since the start of training camp that Wilkinson has landed on the COVID-19 list. However, the first two times were suspected to be due to close contacts, whereas this time he has tested positive for the virus. Chicago doesn't play again until Dec. 5, so Wilkinson could possibly return before then, but it's unclear how much time he will miss.

  • Bears' Elijah Wilkinson: Activated off COVID-19 list

    Wilkinson was activated off the COVID-19 list Friday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Wilkinson will rejoin the team after his second stint on the COVID-19 list this season. It's unclear if he will be ready to play Sunday, but if he is available, then he will likely reclaim his starting right tackle spot from Lachavious Simmons, who drew the start during Wilkinson's absence in Week 7.

    Wilkinson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Wilkinson has served as the Bears' starting right tackle, so his absence will be felt against the strong Buccaneers' front seven. Lachavious Simmons is likely to take over along the offensive line.

  • Bears' Elijah Wilkinson: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Wilkinson was placed on the COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Wilkinson, who joined the Bears in the offseason, will likely wind up as Chicago's swing offensive tackle, but his missed time could put him behind the curve on his new team. The 26-year-old will be aiming to return before the Bears' opening preseason game on Aug. 14 against the Dolphins.

  • Bears' Elijah Wilkinson: Taking career to Chicago

    Wilkinson signed with the Bears on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Signed to the Broncos' roster in 2017 as an undrafted free agent, the 26-year-old Wilkinson has spent his entire NFL career in the Mile High City. Having earned 26 starts the past three seasons, Wilkinson provides Chicago with valuable experience at offensive tackle. After committing six penalties in 15 games during 2019, Wilkinson was flagged just once in nine appearances last year.
