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.

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

Coach Matt Nagy said Thursday that Hicks (knee) will not practice and is a game-time decision for Week 4, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Hicks played through his injury Monday versus Washington, so there's hope that the starting defensive end could tough it out again. The eight-year veteran has not missed a start since 2015. Hicks' presence would be invaluable to Chicago's defensive line approaching Sunday's divisional matchup with the Vikings.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Coach downplays injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Matt Nagy doesn't believe Hicks (knee) is dealing with a long-term injury, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Hicks entered Monday's game against the Redskins with an apparent knee injury, considering he sported a knee brace on the field before exiting for good later on. However, Nagy specifically coined it a "wear and tear" issue, so it seems possible the 2018 Pro Bowler could be available for the Bears' Week 4 matchup against the Vikings.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Doubtful to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks is dealing with a right knee injury and is doubtful to return to Monday's contest against the Redskins.

Hicks was playing with a brace over his knee Monday night, but it apparently wasn't enough to subdue his discomfort. He's recorded one quarterback hit in the contest. Should he not return, look for Roy Robertson-Harris to see increased reps to close out the game.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Records sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks picked up a sack and two tackles in the Bears' loss to the Packers on Thursday.

In addition to his sack, Hicks was in hot pursuit of Aaron Rodgers on a number of other occasions, and he could've had an ever bigger performance. With at least seven sacks in each of his three years with the Bears, he'll continue to offer strong IDP value, though he lacks elite upside.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Rested Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks, along with the Bears' starting defense, was rested in a preseason win over the Colts.

Hicks' numbers the last three years are remarkably consistent, with him totaling 54, 54 and 55 tackles and seven, eight, and seven sacks in those respective seasons. It seems unlikely that he'll develop into a double-digit sack threat, but it can't be ruled out given the number of sacks the Bears defense projects for in 2019.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Comes up big
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks notched 1.5 sacks along with three tackles in the Bears' Week 17 victory over the Vikings, finishing the season with 55 tackles, 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.

Hicks has been incredibly consistent in his three years with the Bears, as he's posted between 53-55 tackles and 7-8.5 sacks in each campaign. With three years remaining on his contract, he should continue to be a centerpiece of the Bears' defense and a strong IDP at the defensive line position.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Stays hot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks registered a sack and three tackles in Chicago's Week 14 win over the Rams.

After not collecting a sack in five straight games, Hicks now has one in three of the last four contests, and fantasy owners should ride him during this hot streak.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Shows versatility in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks rushed for a touchdown while adding a sack and six tackles in Chicago's overtime loss to the Giants on Sunday.

With the Bears trying to get a much-needed score at the goal line, they handed the ball to Hicks, who dove into the end zone to help the team get the game into overtime. Otherwise, he notched his fifth sack of the season, and his ability to get to the quarterback is where most of his fantasy value will be derived.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Ready to rock Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (Achilles) is active for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hicks has been an excellent asset to the Bears' top-ranked defense, making 39 tackles, four sacks and forcing three fumbles. Hicks will have a good chance to get to Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who ranks second in the league with 38 sacks.
