Akiem Hicks Leaves Holding Left Arm With Apparent Injury

Chicago Bears

An early injury to a returning star isn’t what the Bears had in mind on their first defensive drive:

Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks was escorted off the field on the Bears’ first defensive drive in Sunday’s game against the Raiders. And while Hicks was holding his left arm as he walked off the field (meaning his injury absence wasn’t related to the knee issue that kept him off the field last week), losing Hicks for any reason is not ideal.

We will continue to monitor Hicks’ injury situation as this game progresses. Hopefully the offense scores enough to ease the pain of losing a star defender early.
