Akiem Hicks has been wrecking things all year, so this is unfortunate to see him suffer an injury that might take him out of action.
Hicks is doubtful to return because of a hamstring injury:
#Bears injury update:
96 Hicks (hamstring) doubtful
— Chicago Bears (@BearsPR) November 17, 2020
Hicks pulled up gingerly while chasing Kirk Cousins, then walked to the sideline. As Lisa Salters mentioned on the ESPN broadcast, Hicks didn’t receive any immediate medical attention. However, it was clear that he was in no place to re-enter the game immediately.
We saw how much the Bears missed Hicks last year, so here’s hoping this isn’t a long-term injury.
We’ll continue to monitor the situation as the Bears and Vikings battle in a game that is tied 13-all in the fourth quarter.
