Bears' Akiem Hicks: Bounceback campaign expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said that Hicks (elbow) is "really eager to get back on the field and be with his brothers out there competing and playing," Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Pagano anticipates having a fully healthy Hicks to utilize in 2020, after the defensive end was limited to just five games last year and noticably hampered when available. Prior to 2019's injury-riddled campaign, Hicks had put together three straight seasons with at least seven sacks. If the 30-year-old is indeed able to avoid any setbacks in his recovery, he'll be primed to make an impact as a key member of Chicago's defensive line for 2020.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Missing another contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) is ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Vikings.

Hicks' elbow injury will cause him to miss his 10th game in the last 11 weeks. With the Bears already eliminated from postseason contention, the veteran defensive end will turn his attention toward getting fully healthy for the 2020 season.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Hicks continues to battle an elbow injury that's cost him nine of the last 10 games. There's a good chance he won't be able to suit up for Sunday's season finale against the Vikings, especially without Chicago having very much to play for at this stage.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Hicks returned from injured reserve last week and played 36 snaps versus the Packers, but the elbow injury remains bothersome. The 30-year-old doesn't believe he'll require offseason surgery, but the team should remain cautious down the stretch since it is already eliminated from playoff contention.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Continues battling elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.

The 30-year-old returned from injured reserve to play the Packers in Week 15, but he continues to battle the elbow injury. According to Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune, Hicks doesn't expect he'll need offseason surgery, but it would make sense for the Bears to remain cautious if the injury is still problematic, especially since they are already eliminated from the playoffs.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Officially activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears activated Hicks (elbow) from injured reserve Saturday, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Hicks will take the field Sunday versus the Packers for the first time since Week 5. It is unclear if the Bears will play him his usual workload as the starting defensive end out the gate or work him into the swing of things. Either way, the veteran defensive lineman will be back in the trenches.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Progressing toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) needs to be activated to the 53-man roster by 4 P.M. ET on Saturday in order to play Sunday against the Packers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hicks returned to practice at the start of December, and coach Matt Nagy said of Hicks Friday, "We like what we're seeing with him" at practice. The team doesn't list Hicks' practice participation since he's not on the 53-man roster, but it appears there's a chance the 30-year-old returns this weekend.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Resumes practicing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) was able to practice Sunday, Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Hicks' ability to participate in a light practice bodes well for his ability to potentially return from IR when he's eligible to do so in Week 15 against the Packers. Whether he's able to ramp up activity in the two weeks between now and then should ultimately determine whether Hicks can rejoin his teammates on the field this season.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Nearing return to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy said it's the "goal" to have Hicks (elbow) return to practice next week, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hicks moved to injured reserve in mid-October due to the elbow injury, but he may have a chance to play again this season. The 30-year-old is eligible to return Week 15 against the Packers, so participating in practice next week would provide him a couple weeks of practice reps before his potential return.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Moves to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Hicks returned from a knee issue in Week 5, only to leave that game after eight snaps due to the elbow injury. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the veteran defensive lineman is expected to avoid surgery and return from IR when eligible in eight weeks. That would allow Hicks to make his return Week 15 against the Packers at the earliest.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Nature of injury remains hazy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy said he was optimistic Hicks (elbow) didn't have a season-ending injury but wasn't certain, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Nagy revealed little about the nature of Hicks' injury, declining to confirm it was a dislocated elbow but acknowledging the defensive end was in a lot of pain. If it's ultimately ruled a dislocation, Hicks will likely miss a few games, although it's not guaranteed to be a season-ending issue.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Considered questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (elbow) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Raiders, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Hicks went to the locker room soon after suffering this injury, so it's likely he underwent tests on his elbow. The Bears will deploy Roy Robertson-Harris and Jonathan Harris at defensive end as long as Hicks is on the sidelines.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Raiders with an arm injury, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

Hicks' arm took a hard hit from Khalil Mack's helmet, immediately sending him to the medical tent, and subsequently, to the locker room. The Bears are already without Bilal Nichols (hand), so Roy Robertson-Harris and Jonathan Harris are the only healthy defensive ends remaining.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Ready to play in London
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game versus the Raiders in London, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hicks was a game-time decision and was in danger of missing his second straight game, but he's good to go after participating in limited fashion Friday. The 29-year-old figures to reclaim his starting role at defensive end.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Remains a game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hick (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders in London.

Coach Matt Nagy said Thursday that Hicks would be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest, and the questionable tag seems to confirm that assessment. The 29-year-old started the week not practicing but was able to progress to limited participation Friday, so he appears to be trending in the right direction.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Will be game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy said Thursday that Hicks (knee) is a game-time decision for Week 5, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Hicks sat out Week 4's divisional win over the Vikings due to a right knee injury, and his status for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders appears similarly up in the air. If Hicks is once again unable to go, Roy Robertson-Harris will play an increased role in Chicago's defense.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

Hicks sustained the knee injury Week 3 against the Redskins and was unable to play in Sunday's win over the Vikings. The 29-year-old was listed as questionable after not practicing last week and is heading in a similar direction for Week 5.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) won't play in Sunday's clash against the Vikings.

Hicks had come into the game not expecting to play, after he suffered a right knee injury during Monday's win over the Redskins. Hicks was seen on the field testing the knee in pregame, but it wasn't enough to convince trainers to Pete him play. With Hicks officially sidelined, look for Roy Robertson-Harris to see an increase in snaps.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) is not expected to play in Sunday's rivalry game against the Vikings, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

Hicks is still dealing with a right knee injury he suffered during Monday's win over the Redskins and appears a long-shot to play. The veteran's absence would be a real blow, considering Hicks is a stout run-stopper and Dalvin Cook of the Vikings currently leads the NFL in total rushing. As always, check back for the inactive lists prior to kickoff for official word on Hicks' status.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) did not practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Hicks is still nursing a right knee injury he suffered in Monday's win over the Redskins, and while there hasn't been much concern regarding Hicks' health, it's a tad alarming that he did not practice all week. He will remain a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Vikings.
