The Chicago Bears suffered a brutal blow with outside linebacker Robert Quinn landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Quinn has gotten off to an impressive start through these first six games, where he’s totaled 5.5 sacks as part of the NFL’s best pass-rush duo with Khalil Mack, as the pair lead the NFL with a combined 11.5 sacks.
With Quinn landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Bears are down to just Mack, second-year pro Trevis Gipson and undrafted rookie Sam Kamara at edge rusher with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on deck.
Quinn is the second player to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list in the last two weeks joining running back Damien Williams.
