Returning to form
Hicks (concussion) has been a full participant in OTAs for the Bears, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports.
Hicks suffered a concussion during the Bears' 2022 season finale but has since moved past the head injury. The 2022 seventh-round pick started in two of his 15 appearances as a rookie but otherwise served mostly as a special-teams contributor when Jaquon Brisker and Eddie Jackson were available. The 23-year-old will most likely serve as a backup safety and continue to play on special teams this upcoming season.

Will not return
Hicks suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Vikings and will not return, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
After being drafted in the seventh round of the 2022 draft, Hicks didn't see a defensive snap until Jaquan Brisker missed the Week 12 and 13 games. During those games, he posted 10 tackles before going back into a role that was mainly playing on special teams. He'll likely continue his role as a defensive backup and core special teamer in 2023. He's under contract through 2025.
