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.
