Bears make Akiem Hicks a gameday addition to injury report

The Bears have made a late addition to their injury report for Thursday night’s game against the Packers.

Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks has been designated as questionable to play due to a foot injury. Hicks was not listed with an injury on any of the team’s practice reports this week.

There’s no word about when or how Hicks sustained the injury, but the more significant question for the Bears might be how they’ll handle life without Hicks. He’s a key part of their defense and the Bears would like to exploit a Packers line that’s likely to be missing both tackles when Thursday night’s game gets underway.

The Bears have already ruled out safety Quintin Demps and linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski is set to miss a second game with a pec injury after being listed as doubtful.

  1. Not good for the Bears if he can’t go. You need consistent push up the middle to keep Rodgers in check, and Akiem brings it.

  2. The Bears will miss Hicks and are making a mistake by playing Glennon, so it’s great that my Packers are lucking out again. Unless our O-line gets Aaron killed. But that doesn’t happen with happy feet Rodgers.

  3. I expect an old fashioned slugfest. Bears opponents have strong records thus far, Packers’ not so much. Pack needs a convincing win to remove doubt in my mind.

  4. No rest for the weary.
    That sentiment includes both the Bears, as well as the Packers.
    And I agree, I anticipate an old fashioned brawl myself.
    Classic NFL at its finest with our biggest rival.
    Looking forward to it, after the media/political circus that precedes the game, of course.

  5. Here’s hoping it’s a great game — and that the Pack fans just stand at attention with their hands over their hearts during the anthem rather than all the interlocking arm kumbaya crap.
