ARob, Hicks each practice for first time since Week 9


The big Bears news of the day was Matt Nagy’s announcement that Justin Fields would return as the team’s starting quarterback this Sunday against the Packers. But a little later in the day, the Bears announced that two other big names returned to the practice field. For the first time in nearly a month, Allen Robinson and Akiem Hicks each participated in practice, albeit as limited participants.

Both Robinson and Hicks hurt themselves in Week 9’s game against the Steelers. Robinson went out with a hamstring injury, while it was an ankle injury for Hicks. Neither man has practiced since that game.

While practicing in a limited fashion on Wednesday isn’t a guarantee that either will play when the Bears travel to Lambeau Field, it’s certainly a step in the right direction.

Besides the three games missed due to the ankle injury, Hicks also essentially missed three full games with a groin injury earlier this year. Meanwhile Robinson hadn’t missed a game since 2018. That year he missed two games with a groin injury and one game with a rib injury.
