Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy says he has tested positive for COVID-19. Nagy, who is vaccinated, announced the result during a Zoom call Monday minutes after his usual in-person session was switched. He said from his car he was feeling “pretty good.”  Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will run meetings that Nagy can’t conduct virtually. League rules say vaccinated individuals who are asymptomatic can return to the practice facility once they have two consecutive negative PCR tests taken at least 24 hours apart. If they are symptomatic, they need two negative tests taken at least 24 hours apart and must be symptom-free for 48 hours. The Bears had four players on the COVID-19 list as of Monday morning.

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield remains out with a left shoulder injury that could sideline him for this week’s game against Pittsburgh.

Mayfield initially injured his shoulder on Sept. 19. Browns running back Nick Chubb practiced after missing two games with a calf injury.

A person with direct knowledge of the diagnosis says an MRI confirmed that New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson has a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will be sidelined at least two weeks. Wilson was injured in the second quarter of New York’s 54-13 loss to New England on Sunday when he was hit by Patriots linebacker Matt Judon, who fell on the back of the quarterback’s legs after he threw an incomplete pass. The person confirmed the MRI results to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team hadn’t announced them. ESPN first reported the MRI results.

Carson Wentz threw two TD passes and ran for another score to lead the Indianapolis Colts to a rain-soaked 30-18 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The Colts overcame the wet conditions and an early nine-point deficit to win for the third time in four games following an 0-3 start to the season. The 49ers dropped their fourth straight game and remained winless at home for more than a year since beating the Rams on Oct. 18, 2020, as the return of starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo failed to provide any spark on a wet night.

The New York Jets’ already disappointing season took a more ominous turn when rookie quarterback Zach Wilson suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of a 54-13 loss to the New England Patriots. Wilson said he felt a “pop” and a “twist” in his knee when Patriots linebacker Matt Judon fell on the back of his legs early in the second quarter. The second overall draft pick eventually walked off the field after spending several minutes being examined on the turf. Wilson said the initial diagnosis was an injury to his posterior cruciate ligament.
