Bears Place Akiem Hicks on Injured Reserve

The Bears defensive tackle has been placed on injured reserve, but is expected to return later this season.

The injuries continue to pile up for the Bears. Yesterday, news broke that offensive lineman Kyle Long was placed on injured reserve and would miss the rest of the season. Today, defensive tackle Akiem Hicks was placed on IR as well.

Luckily, Hicks isn’t ruled out for the season like Long is. His elbow injury will not require surgery and he is expected to return in eight weeks.
