5. Have we seen the last of Elijah Hicks as a starter for the Chicago Bears?

Elijah Hicks has been filling in for Eddie Jackson for the past two games. Needless to say, if we are asking about him being done with the team after that long there is a good chance it has not gone well. Hicks was not too bad against the Chiefs, mainly in that he was not the biggest problem against the Chiefs. However, he was not a game-breaker in any way.

Against the Broncos, he was a liability. Hicks had multiple missed tackle attempts in run support and was the main culprit of the game-changing reception by Marvin Mims late in the game. It was a reminder that this is a seventh-round rookie in his second NFL season.

The Chicago Bears may not be getting Eddie Jackson back, but they did sign Duron Harmon off of the Ravens practice squad. When you think of all of the injuries that the Ravens have, Harmon must have really liked his chances of starting this week to sign that deal. That means that the Bears are moving on from Elijah Hicks and pushing him back to the third safety role.
