Chicago Bears Injury Updates

Bears DL Akiem Hicks left Sunday's loss to the Raiders early with "what appeared to be a dislocated left elbow," according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. Hicks did not return to the game. He'll get a Week 6 bye to try to get it ready to play. Hicks, of course, entered the game questionable with a knee injury that cost him Week 4.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks is active for today's game against the Raiders. He missed last week with a knee injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. Hicks returned to a limited Friday workout. He'll be a risky IDP option but is available for deeper leagues.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He returned to a limited practice Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday. 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.

Bears DL Akiem Hicks (knee) and LB Roquan Smith are inactive for today's game against the Vikings. Hicks' deactivation is no surprise. He missed practice all week after suffering a knee injury in Week 3. Smith had no injury designation throughout the week. It's not yet clear what's going on with him, though it's been reported as a "personal issue." Expect Nick Kwiatkoski to start in Smith's place.

The Bears don't expect DL Akiem Hicks to play against the Vikings today, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. Hicks sustained a knee injury in Monday's win over Washington and missed practice all week. He's officially questionable, but you shouldn't plan on having him available for your IDP lineup.

Bears DE Akiem Hicks is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Hicks missed practice all week with a knee injury. HC Matt Nagy told the Chicago Tribune on Thursday that Hicks appeared headed for "game-time decision." The game's 4:25 p.m. ET start makes it tough to wait for Hicks in IDP lineups this weekend.

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 OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the ankle injury that cost him last Sunday's game against the Jets. Mack again missed 2 days of practice before putting in a limited workout Friday. That's been his schedule the past 2 weeks. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Just like last week, he sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday with the ankle injury and then returned for a limited Friday workout. Mack still played 84% of the snaps in the loss to the Patriots. We'd bet on full playing time once again this week.

Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters Wednesday that OLB Khalil Mack is "day-to-day" with the ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to Miami. "We're just going to continue to keep an eye on it and be more cautious than anything," the coach said, according to the team website. Don't be surprised if we see little-to-no Mack on the practice field this week. But he played 79.5% of the snaps against the Dolphins -- a season-high 62 total snaps in the OT game. So we'd bet on Mack playing in Week 7. We'll certainly watch the star pass-rusher's status into the weekend.

Bears OLB Leonard Floyd left Saturday night's game against the Broncos with a left hand injury. According to the Chicago Tribune, Floyd was in a hard cast after the game and headed for further testing on Sunday. HC Matt Nagy, however, said "I don't think so" when asked whether Floyd (or TE Adam Shaheen) had suffered a fracture. We'll see where this goes. A healthy Floyd would be the team's lead pass-rusher.

Bears S Adrian Amos (hamstring) and DT Eddie Goldman (hip) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Goldman isn't much of an IDP option even when healthy, but his absence can only help Cincinnati RB Giovani Bernard. Amos has been a top fantasy DB when healthy but is expected to miss his 2nd straight game. The D will also likely miss OLB Pernell McPhee, who is doubtful with a shoulder injury.

Bears S Adrian Amos is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Niners with a hamstring injury. Make other plans for your IDP lineup, if you haven't already. On the positive side, ILB Danny Trevathan finished the week not even listed on the injury report. He's ready to return after losing 3 games to a calf injury.

Bears LB Danny Trevathan put in a limited practice Wednesday for the 1st time since the team's Week 9 bye. That obviously bodes well for a return to action from the calf injury that has cost him 3 games, though we'll continue to watch his status through the week.

Bears S Adrian Amos missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Eagles. We'll watch his participation throughout the week.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles with the calf injury that cost him the past 2 games. That means another start for Nick Kwiatkoski inside next to Christian Jones. Both continue to be playable in IDP leagues. DE Akiem Hicks (knee) is questionable for the game. He returned for a limited practice Friday after missing the previous 2 days but told the Chicago Tribune that it was "just a little bit of maintenance" and that he expects to play. Hicks is worth waiting on for your IDP lineups.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions with the calf injury that kept him out last week. Trevathan still has yet to practice since suffering the injury, making him look like a weak bet for Sunday. We knocked him down the LB rankings.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is inactive for today's game against the Packers because of a calf injury. That leaves Christian Jones as the lead ILB in an upside matchup. Expect Nick Kwiatkoski to start in Trevathan's place. He's a fringe IDP option for deeper leagues as well.

Bears ILB Danny Trevathan is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers with a calf injury. He missed the whole week of practice, despite having the bye following the last game he played. That makes Trevathan look like a risky IDP option for this week. We'll update his status Sunday.
