Hicks recorded a sack and three tackles in the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Packers. Hicks has proven to be an excellent pass rusher over the past few seasons, but with the addition of Khalil Mack, he'll be in position to have a career year. It was clear in this contest that with defenses focusing on slowing Mack, Hicks will have plenty of one-on-one matchups to exploit when rushing the passer throughout the course of the season.
Hicks (knee) was not on the Bears' injury report Tuesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Hicks missed some time during the preseason due to a sore knee, but it appears to no longer be an issue with the regular season approaching. He should start at defensive end for the Bears in the opener, looking to build off of a career-high 8.5 sacks in 2017.
Hicks (knee) is being held out of Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Hicks has been nursing a sore knee for the past couple of days, and the Bears are likely averse to risking their starting defensive end's health in a game that is ultimately non-consequential to him. With Hicks out, look for Bilal Nichols and Roy Robertson-Harris to see additional snaps with the first-team defense.
Hicks is day-to-day with a sore knee, Colleen Kane of The Chicago Tribune reports. The Bears' next preseason game is Saturday against the Chiefs, but expect the team to be cautious with Hicks, who logged 54 tackles and 8.5 sacks in 2017. If the 28-year-old can't go, expect Bilal Nichols and Roy Robertson-Harris to see additional snaps in the third exhibition contest.
Hicks (knee) is active for Sunday's tilt against Philadelphia, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. Hicks sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday with the ankle issue before taking part in a limited Friday session. Though he's been given the green light to play Sunday, Hicks could be see his reps capped during the contest. The Bears activated John Jenkins for just the third time all season to provide added depth along the defensive line in the event Hicks can't take on his usual workload, according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.
