Banks (leg) will not suit up for Saturday's game against the Cardinals, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Banks played in nine games last season, recording just six tackles and one pass breakup for three different teams. He's currently competing for a role on special teams, but it is yet to be seen whether this injury will be a long-term issue.
The 27-year-old bounced around last season, playing with three different teams overall. He finished the season with the Bears and has now re-upped with them for one more season. The recent signing of Prince Amukamara likely negates any chance Banks had at landing a starting role in the secondary. However, he could add value as a special teamer.
Banks (ankle) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Banks hasn't played in weeks since injuring his ankle. However, after logging a limited practice session Wednesday, Banks' complete participation Thursday suggests he'll be ready to make his debut as a member of the Chicago Bears on Saturday against the Redskins.
