Bears place Akiem Hicks on IR

The Bears placed guard Kyle Long on injured reserve Monday and they moved another player to the list on Tuesday.

Defensive tackle Akiem Hicks is the unlucky player this time. Hicks injured his elbow in the Bears’ Week Five loss to the Raiders in London.

Hicks also missed time with a knee injury this season. He has six tackles, three quarterback hits, a sack and a fumble recovery in four appearances.

While announcing that Hicks has been placed on injured reserve, the Bears also announced that they have promoted offensive lineman Alex Bars from the practice squad. Bars signed with the Bears as an undrafted rookie after making 32 starts over the course of his time at Notre Dame.

  1. Can’t help but feel the Bears’ window closed with that Parkey miss. They have not had the run of good health they did last year, Trubisky and Nagy both look to have plateaued (if not regressing) and the other three teams in their division have all improved themselves more than the Bears did this offseason. Oh did I mention their schedule? Given all that, they look like a 9-7 team best case and I don’t see that getting them a playoff spot with the state of the NFC this year.

  2. Yikes.

    This is why don’t load up for cap hell. If you lose just one key guy you overpaid, you lose depth elsewhere.

    This is what I was saying about Chicago. And, then, they’ll need to pay Trubisky in 2 years.

    They paid too many guys outside the organization to be their base. You can’t do that.

    With GB getting support from Goodell last night, it’s a B Line to the division now for GB unless they stumble.

  4. Tho I am a Viking fan I hate to see any player, especially a really good one like Hicks go to the IR. Heal fast and get back on the field

  5. The Bears can never, and I mean EVER (or at least in the 35 years Ive been a fan), put together a string of consistent winning seasons. They flash in the pan for an occasional 13-3 or 12-4 season, then they get full of themselves and start believing all their hype, and then come crashing back down to a top 5 draft pick status not long after.

  6. First of all, lets ALL take a moment of silence for our rivals to east – the Lions.

    Last night was an absurdity on the highest of levels and for Rodgers to say “bad calls even out eventually” is so smug, yet typical for that obnoxious diva. I used to respect Rodgers, but definitely not anymore. As a Bears fan, I witnessed the Lions and Bears get hosed on so many calls when playing the Packers this season it’s hard to even watch the NFL these days.

    Hicks is out and I knew it when I saw his elbow removed from the socket live.

    RRH and Bilal Nichols are nothing to be ashamed of. I truly believe they can hold down the fort while Hicks heals. The biggest issues are play calling (NAGY), the run game (OLINE) and the youngster #10. Can the Bears offense turn it around after the bye, if not bye-bye-bye playoffs.

    Everything channeled through him on the front 7. Mack is overpaid as is Floyd, but it all channeled through him as the cornerstone of the 3-4.

    Sometimes people see what they want to. This is one of those times. Rodgers was not being smug and when it boils down, were talking about 1 bad call. Nothing new in today’s NFL, don’t have a stroke.

  10. Leonard Floyd is overpaid? He’s still on a rookie deal…

    This is a big blow to the Bears. I’m not a believer in Nagy or Biscuit and I think their window with this defense is very limited, 2-3 years max. This is already year 2 and it looks like it’s not their year. They can’t figure out the running game and the QB isn’t good enough to carry the offense.

    Oh Please, easy for a Packer fan to say. Rodgers is the LeBron of the NFL and by that I mean he’s a bad actor, huge diva and gets more support from officiating than any other player in the league. Smug is a perfect description of Rodgers, he’s the most arrogant player in the league. If Rodgers is so good, why does he always contest to the refs when he fails to convert on 3rd down. Terrible phantom calls happened in week one and this past Monday against two division rivals multiple times throughout the games. hmmmmmmmm…….
