Bears' Cody Whitehair: Ready for Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears activated Whitehair (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Whitehair has cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols and will be available for Monday's game against the Vikings. The fifth-year center out of Kansas State started all seven games before coming down with the illness.

Bears' Cody Whitehair: Comes up positive for COVID
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehair tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday and placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as a result, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

There have now been two Chicago offensive linemen to test positive for COVID, though the absence of Whitehair, a 2018 Pro Bowl participant, would be a loss far more significant than that of Jason Spriggs. Whitehair has started seven of eight games thus far this season for Chicago, but he will miss Sunday's matchup against Detroit if his positive result is confirmed. The Bears had to get by without Whitehair last week against New Orleans as he dealt with a calf injury, thrusting Sam Mustipher into a starting role at center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehair (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Whitehair will miss Sunday's contest due to a calf injury he sustained against the Rams on Monday. With James Daniels (pectoral) on IR, the Bears may have to rely on Sam Mustipher at center.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehair (finger) wasn't listed on Chicago's injury report Monday.

Whitehair originally injured his finger Aug. 15. The 27-year-old signed a five-year, $52.5 million extension with Chicago on Sunday and will look to continue his starting role in 2019.

Bears' Cody Whitehair: Dealing with finger injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehair injured a finger on his left hand in Wednesday's practice, but head coach Matt Nagy said it likely isn't a serious issue, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

When healthy, Whitehair figures to slot in as the starting left guard this season. The 27-year-old started each game at center in 2018.

Bears' Cody Whitehair: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehair (elbow) was a full participant at the Bears' practice Wednesday.

Whitehair sustained the injury against the Saints in Week 8 and did not return to the game, but he appears healthy following the Bears' bye week. The 24-year-old may be battling Hroniss Grasu for the starting job at center for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Bears' Cody Whitehair: Suffers elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehair hurt his elbow Sunday against the Saints and didn't return.

The Bears have a Week 9 bye, so Whitehair will have two weeks to recover. If he's unable to play in Week 10 against the Packers, expect Hroniss Grasu to slot in at center.
