Bears DE Akiem Hicks says he'll be ready to play against the Packers on Sunday. The veteran has been on IR since dislocating his left elbow in Week 5 against the Raiders. This week marks the first time he's eligible to return. “It’s a pretty specific date," he said, according to multiple outlets. "I knew when it was coming and I’ve prepared accordingly." HC Matt Nagy has reportedly been non-committal on Hicks' status for the game. We'll see this weekend. Hicks doesn't look like a strong IDP option for Week 15 but carries some low-end upside. He notched a sack among 4 total pressures in the Week 1 meeting with Green Bay.

The Bears on Tuesday placed DL Akiem Hicks on IR. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Hicks had been getting opinions on the elbow he injured in their Week 5 loss to the Raiders over Chicago's bye. Even if he's a candidate to be designated to return, that wouldn't come until the end of the regular season. So IDP owners should certainly drop Hicks from redraft rosters. His absence hurts the team D outlook as well, while leaving snaps available for players such as Nick Williams and Roy Robertson-Harris.

Hicks sat out Week 4 with a knee injury and clearly isn't back to full strength. We'll see if he's active or the game, but he'll carry risk even if he is.
