The Bears deactivated linebacker Roquan Smith for Sunday’s game against the Vikings and it’s unclear whether he will return to action in Week Five.
Personal matters were cited as the reason why Smith did not play and head coach Matt Nagy did not elaborate on Smith’s situation after the 16-6 victory. During a Monday appearance on WBBM Newsradio, the coach did not say whether Smith will travel to London with the team to face the Raiders.
“We’ll see,” Nagy said. “We’re still working through all that. We’ll see where that goes.”
Linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski took Smith’s spot in the lineup and posted nine tackles, a sack, two tackles for a loss and a forced fumble.
The Bears may be counting on Kwiatkoski again this week.
