Bears put Damien Williams on COVID-19 list

The Chicago Bears placed running back Damien Williams on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

What It Means:

Williams is going to need to return two negative COVID-19 tests in a 24-hour span in order to be cleared for Week 6. That means Khalil Herbert is now the favorite to lead the Bears in carries against the Green Bay Packers. The sixth-round rookie rushed 18 times for 75 yards last week and wasn't targeted in the passing game. Ryan Nall could also be mixed in for a few touches when Herbert needs a breather.

The Packers are allowing the seventh-most Adjusted Rushing Net Expected Points per play this season and they rank 16th in FanDuel points allowed to the running back position. Herbert has a $5,500 salary on FanDuel in Week 6.
