Akiem Hicks injury status is fairly vague. As someone who's had a dislocated elbow, I can honestly say I don't know how he'll play for at least a month. Then again, in my case it included a hairline fracture as well. https://chicago.suntimes.com/bears/2019/10/6/20901454/bears-akiem-hicks-injury-raiders-london-left-early
I think he may have a humerus fracture after watching the injury in slo-mo. Surprised the bears are staying so quiet about the injury.
I suffered a dislocated elbow and a hairline fracture of the elbow once in a home repair accident and the way he reacted, screaming in the tent by the bench, was how I was acting when it occurred. The pain was unbelievable. If he has something like that I wouldn't expect him back unitl at least Thanksgiving. Took me 6 weeks of my arm in a sling and sleep was impossible. Then another 3 weeks before it started feeling good enough to move it normally.
I'm a trauma nurse and that was my take watching the video. Still a 8 week recovery. Strange that the Bears are being so quiet about the injury.
