Cubs News: Justin Fields, Akiem Hicks out against Lions


by - Senior Editor -

Some Chicago star power will be out for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day game against the Lions.

The Bears announced on Wednesday that defensive standout Akiem Hicks will still be out with his ankle injury. This will be the fourth game that Hicks has missed this season due to an injury.

Starting quarterback Justin Fields will also miss the game as he has been ruled out with his ribs injury that he sustained during the loss to the Ravens.

Andy Dalton will get the start with Nick Foles as the backup quarterback.

Other notables on the injury report include receiver Allen Robinson designated as "doubtful" and defender Eddie Jackson as "questionable".
