The Buccaneers have agreed to a 1-year deal with former Bears DL Akiem Hicks. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's worth $10 million, which clearly points to Hicks assuming a starting role with his new team. Tampa Bay had yet to re-sign DL Ndamukong Sun, and now has appeared to find his replacement. Hicks lost 8 games to multiple injuries last year and dealt with hamstring and ankle issues even in a healthier 2020. But the veteran has remained effective when on the field and sports some IDP upside, especially where he gets a DT or interior-lineman designation. Hicks will turn 33 in mid-November.

The Bears have activated DE Akiem Hicks from the COVID list. He spent 8 days on the list and will carry risk for IDP rosters in Week 17.

Bears LB Roquan Smith (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. That's not surprising, given that he played last week and finished the practice week with a full workout. DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) is also active. Both players entered the night questionable.

Bears LB Roquan Smith is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He missed the first 2 days of practice with the hamstring injury that knocked him out of the Thanksgiving game. Smith did return for a limited Friday workout, but he looks risky even if active. Weigh that risk as you compare Smith to your other IDP options. We’ll update his status Sunday morning. The Bears have also ruled DL Akiem Hicks out for the game

The Bears have ruled DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) out for Thursday's game against the Lions. Both starting safeties are questionable. Eddie Jackson (hamstring) remained limited in practice this week after missing the past 2 games. Tashaun Gipson (chest) seems like a surprising inclusion, after the team listed him as a full participant in each practice. DeAndre Houston-Carson and Deon Bush stand by as potential replacements.

Bears EDGE Khalil Mack needs foot surgery and will miss the rest of the season. He and the team had hoped that rest would allow him to recover enough to return, but that proved to not be the case. We'll see about Mack's recovery heading into 2022. Trevis Gipson looks like he'll continue as the primary guy opposite Robert Quinn. He has 0 QB hits in elevated playing time over the past 3 contests. Chicago also placed ILB Danny Trevathan (knee) back on IR, which he spent a stint on earlier this year. That re-opens the spot for Alec Ogletree next to Roquan Smith. For this week, the Bears have ruled DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) out for this week's game against the Chargers. S Eddie Jackson (hamstring) is questionable. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday's workout.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks (groin) and S Tashaun Gipson (hip) are active for today's game against the 49ers. The defense will be missing star pass rusher Khalil Mack, though.

The Bears have officially ruled OLB Khalil Mack out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, as expected. HC Matt Nagy said Friday that they haven't decided yet whether to place Mack on IR to give his ailing foot time to heal. DE Akiem Hicks (groin) and S Tashaun Gipson (hip) are questionable.

The Bears have ruled DL Akiem Hicks out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He was initially questionable with his groin injury.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. He has made a habit of playing through questionable tags, so it seems unwise to bet against Mack. The Buccaneers present 1 of the league's worst sack matchups, though. So it's not a great spot for an active Mack. Also questionable are DL Akiem Hicks (groin), DL Bilal Nichols (knee) and CB Duke Shelley (ankle). Chicago has ruled out S Tashaun Gipson. Deon Bush, who replaced an injured Gipson earlier this season, is on IR. So it'll be DeAndre Houston-Carson starting in Gipson's place.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is active for today's game against the Packers. He missed practice all week, so there's a chance he's limited vs. his usual performance level. But he's available for IDP lineups. DL Akiem Hicks (groin) and CB Duke Shelley (ankle) are active as well after arriving questionable.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. Mack missed practice all week, a step down from last week, when he put in a limited Friday workout. Mack played through that questionable tag, though, and has done so multiple times this season. Also questionable for the Bears defense are: DL Akiem Hicks (groin), CB Duke Shelley (ankle) and S Eddie Jackson (knee). We'll update the statuses for all 4 on Sunday morning.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He told reporters Friday, though: "I'm going to be out there. If I'm out there, I'm 100%." Mack played through a questionable tag last week for a foot issue. This time around, he's also listed with a rib injury. There's risk but also upside to Mack in IDP lineups. DL Akiem Hicks (groin) is doubtful or the game. Chicago might get S Tashaun Gipson back. He's questionable with a hamstring injury that cost him the past 2 games.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks left Sunday's win over the Lions with a groin injury. We'll see whether the issue will cost him further time.

Bears DT Eddie Goldman (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. That significantly damages the run defense ahead of a matchup with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. The Bears are also down S Tashaun Gipson (hamstring). DE Akiem Hicks (illness, knee) and S Eddie Jackson (toe) are active. Each entered the day questionable.

The Bears list S Tashaun Gipson as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Browns after he suffered a hamstring injury in Thursday’s practice. DT Eddie Goldman is questionable despite downgrading to no practice Friday. Goldman had been limited the previous 2 days. S Eddie Jackson (toe) and DL Akiem Hicks (illness, knee) are questionable

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) and DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) are active for today's game against the Jaguars.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (shoulder) and DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Hicks put in just a limited Friday after missing the previous 2 days of practice. Mack went full, no practice and then limited over the 3 days. We'll check the status for both on Sunday morning. Starting CB Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) has been ruled out for the 2nd straight game.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Lions. He carries some re-injury risk but also plenty of upside against a sluggish Detroit offense still missing RB D'Andre Swift and lead WR Kenny Golladay.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
