GREEN BAY, Wis. — Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks will play Sunday for the first time since Week 5. As expected, he’s listed as active for the Bears-Packers game after being out since Week 5 with a dislocated left elbow.

Fellow lineman Roy Robertson-Harris will be out, though, after he participated in only one practice this week because of a foot injury suffered against the Cowboys.

Robertson-Harris had a sack and two quarterback hurries in the Bears’ first meeting against the Packers in Week 1.

The Bears ruled out wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion), inside linebacker Danny Trevathan (elbow) and right tackle Bobby Massie (ankle) on Friday.

Receiver Javon Wims (knee) is active after being called questionable Friday. Th Bears also ruled tight end Eric Saubert, offensive lineman Corey Levin and defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson inactive.

On Saturday, the Bears put tight end Ben Braunecker (concussion) on injured reserve to make room for Hicks, who was activated off Injured Reserve.
