The team announced Saturday that special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will serve as head coach against the 49ers.
The 43-year-old coach, who is vaccinated, announced the result during a Zoom call minutes after his usual in-person session was switched.
The Bears will have Quinn, Johnson and Wilkinson back for the matchup with the visiting 49ers (2-4), but offensive lineman Germain Ifedi was placed on the COVID-19 list on Friday.
