  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Unavailable for practice

    Hicks (ankle) was unavailable for Wednesday's practice. The defensive tackle did not practice Wednesday while nursing an ankle injury, causing him to be placed on the injury report. Hicks returned to the lineup in Week 17 after missing the prior week while on the COVID list, and made two tackles. His availability Sunday will become clearer as the week goes on.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Removed from COVID-19 list

    Hicks (undisclosed) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Hicks returned from a four-game absence due to an ankle injury to register two sacks against the Vikings in Week 15. However, the veteran defensive end was sidelined the following week due to the NFL's COVID-19 protocols. He will look to get back on track against the Giants in Week 17.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Notches two sacks

    Hicks posted two sacks and five tackles overall in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday. After missing the last four games with an ankle injury, Hicks easily had his best performance of the season, not only posting his highest tackle total of the year, but also more than doubling the 1.5 sacks he came into the game with. Due to the weak performances he's had during most of the season, he'll be a risky option in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Out Sunday

    Hicks (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Packers, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports. Hicks logged a full practice Friday, but he's still not ready to return and will miss his fourth straight game. He'll try to return in Week 15 against the Vikings, but Angelo Blackson will likely take on the majority of the snaps on the edge Sunday against the divisional foe Packers.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Limited practice Wednesday

    Hicks (groin) practiced in a limited capacity for the Bears on Wednesday. The 32-year-old has been dealing with the injury for almost a month now, playing in only one game since Week 4. After missing last week's game against the Buccaneers, a practice to open the week is a good sign for his availability versus the 49ers in Week 8. If he still can't return Sunday, Angelo Blackson will handle an increased workload once again.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Questionable after limited session

    Hicks (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay. Hicks was a limited participant Friday, which is an encouraging sign after he was unable to practice Wednesday nor Thursday. Then again, he followed the same pattern last week and ultimately sat out due to this same injury. His status will likely come down to a game-time decision.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Officially ruled out

    Hicks (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Hicks was listed as doubtful for Sunday's Week 5 matchup, and he'll be unable to suit up against the Raiders. Angelo Blackson will likely take on a starting role after he filled in following Hicks' early exit last week.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Doubtful for Week 5

    Hicks (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Hicks gave himself a glimmer of hope by upgrading to limited participation in Friday's practice after sitting out the previous two days. Nonetheless, he's not expected to take the field come Sunday due to the groin injury Hicks sustained against the Lions in Week 4. Angelo Blackson filled in for Hicks after he was injured against Detroit and will likely continue to do so in Vegas.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Questionable to return Sunday

    Hicks (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Lions, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Hicks has registered at least three tackles in each game this season and is a key piece to the Bears defense. If he is unable to return, Angelo Blackson will likely play a large role for the remainder of the contest.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Records half a sack

    Hicks posted three tackles and half a sack in the Bears' 34-14 loss to the Rams on Sunday. Hicks played 77 percent of the team's snaps, as he was the Bears' defensive lineman with the most playing time in this game. However, with the Rams having solid pass protection while throwing the ball just 26 times, there weren't many opportunities to rush the passer. In his age-31 season, Hicks' role puts him in position to replicate the 49 tackles and 3.5 sacks he posted in 2020.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Dealing with foot soreness

    Hicks missed practice Thursday due to foot soreness but is expected to return soon, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Coach Matt Nagy wasn't concerned with Hicks' injury and said he expects him to practice Friday. Even if the hulking defensive lineman isn't ready to return Friday, his absence isn't expected to linger for long.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Ends regular season with 3.5 sacks

    Hicks posted two tackles in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Hicks recorded 49 tackles and 3.5 sacks in his fifth season with the Bears. Although his tackle totals were similar to the numbers he posted in his other healthy seasons, his sack numbers dropped dramatically in his age-30 season. He's signed with the team through the 2021 season, and unless he can return to the form he showed a few years ago, he'll be considered an inconsistent fantasy option with a limited ceiling.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Upgraded Thursday

    Hicks (hamstring) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice. Hicks failed to suit up in practice Wednesday after missing last week's game, so it's a good sign that he was able to practice in some capacity. Hicks is trending in the right direction for Sunday's contest against the Lions, but if he's forced to miss another game, Mario Edwards and Brent Urban would be in line for the bulk of the Week 13 snaps at defensive end.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Considered questionable

    Hicks (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Hicks was unable to practice all week, so his questionable designation is seemingly a little optimistic. Still, his final status will be determined by how he is feeling closer to kickoff. If he is ultimately unable to go, look for Brent Urban to replace him at defensive end.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Sits out Thursday

    Hicks (hamstring) was a non-participant during the Bears' practice session Thursday. Despite being afforded additional recuperation time with Chicago taking its bye over Week 11, Hicks has still been unable to return to practice after sustaining his hamstring injury in the second half of a Nov. 16 Monday night loss to Minnesota. The 2018 Pro Bowler has generated 39 tackles, seven tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks thus far on the season, but if he's unable to go Week 12, it would be one more advantage for the Aaron Rodgers-led Packers offense.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Dealing with hamstring injury

    Hicks suffered a strained right hamstring in Monday's loss to the Vikings, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports. Hicks didn't return after suffering the injury in the third quarter of Monday game, and his absence was immediately felt on defense, as Vikings running back Dalvin Cook produced 66 of his 96 rushing yards after Hicks exited the game. Luckily, the 31-year-old defensive end has a Week 11 bye to recover, and his return will be vital for a Week 12 road game against Aaron Jones and the Packers.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Cleared for Week 7

    Hicks (illness) will play Monday's game versus the Rams. After missing the first two practices of the week, Hicks kicked his illness and will suit up for the primetime clash. The veteran defensive end started off the year with 3.5 sacks through the first three games, but he's been in a cold spell since then, being blanked in that department over the last three games. Hicks has a tough test to get back on track, as Jared Goff has avoided sacks well this year, getting taken down on just 3.6 percent of dropbacks.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Continues hot streak

    Hicks posted 1.5 sacks and four tackles in Chicago's 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday. For the third week in a row, Hicks has recorded a sack while averaging four tackles. Unless he begins to cool off, he'll continue to be an outstanding IDP option at the defensive end position.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Shakes off illness

    Hicks (illness) was a full participant in Friday's practice and will play Sunday versus the Giants. Hicks missed Thursday's practice with an illness but quickly returned to the team. Expect the veteran DE to log a full workload Sunday, looking to shut down Saquon Barkley and pressure Daniel Jones into mistakes. In Week 1, Hicks logged five tackles (four solo) and a sack against the Lions.

  • Bears' Akiem Hicks: Falls ill Thursday

    Hicks (illness) didn't suit up in Thursday's practice. It's unclear how serious the illness is for Hicks, but it was enough to force him to miss valuable practice time. If the illness sidelines Hicks for Sunday's game against the Giants, Mario Edwards or Brent Urban would both be in line for an uptick in snaps.
