Bears DL Akiem Hicks is questionable for Sunday's game at the Giants with an Achilles' injury. Hicks returned to a full practice Friday, though, after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He looks likely to play, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks missed practice Wednesday and Thursday because of an Achilles' tendon issue. Here's what HC Matt Nagy told the Chicago Sun-Times on Thursday: "His is precautionary. It's just one of those things. We just felt like with where he's at, it would be good to give him a day and help him out there." DC Vic Fangio added: “He’s got a way to rally about himself and can kind of ignore whatever bumps and bruises he has going. He’s a tough guy.” It sounds like the Bears expect him to play. We'll check Hicks' Friday participation and game status. If he's OK for Sunday, the matchup with the Giants presents a high IDP ceiling.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks was ejected in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's win over the Buccaneers for making contact with an official. Hicks stayed on the sideline several plays into the next series until officials told the team he needed to leave the field. At that point, Hicks removed his jersey and shoulder pads and flung them into the stands. He'll at least face a fine for the ejection and could be in for a 1-game suspension. We'll keep an eye out for that. Chicago gets a Week 5 bye.
