Pro Bowl defensive lineman Akiem Hicks left the Bears’ locker room before the doors opened to the media Monday, walking toward the team bus with a slight limp. He left the game after injuring his right knee.

Coach Matt Nagy put his typical optimistic spin on the outlook for Hicks.

“I don’t have anything for sure,” he said. “But I feel like he’ll be OK.”

Hicks wasn’t the only Bears star to get hurt. Taylor Gabriel, who caught three second-quarter touchdown passes, was put in the concussion protocol.
