(670 The Score) Bears star defensive lineman Akiem Hicks remains sidelined with a hamstring injury and was held out of practice Wednesday.

Hicks suffered the injury during the Bears' loss to the Vikings on Nov. 16 at Soldier Field, displaying a clear limp as he moved along the sidelines after exiting. Hicks has 26 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 10 games this season.

Hicks, 31, played in just five games in 2019 while dealing with multiple injuries. He had remained healthy this season before suffering the hamstring setback.

The Bears also practiced without quarterback Nick Foles, who's still dealing with a hip injury that he also suffered on Nov. 16. Coach Matt Nagy declined to name a starter at quarterback between Foles and Mitchell Trubisky, though signs are pointing toward Trubisky being under center.

Linebacker Danny Trevathan missed practice due to personal reasons. Tight end Jimmy Graham took a veteran rest day. Nose tackle John Jenkins (ankle), defensive back Sherrick McManis (hand) and running back Cordarrelle Patterson (calf) were limited in practice.

Running back David Montgomery practiced in full after being cleared from the concussion protocol.

The Bears (5-5) play the Packers (7-3) on Sunday night at Lambeau Field.
