The Chicago Bears will be without defensive tackle Akiem Hicks for the remainder of Sunday’s game vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Following an interception, Hicks and a Tampa player were involved in an altercation. During the altercation, Hicks shoved an official and was subsequently ejected.
#Bears DE Akiem Hicks just ejected for pushing an official. Have to wonder if a fine or possible suspension follows.

This will certainly yield a fine and could well end up in a suspension for Hicks.
The first half has otherwise been a dream for Chicago. Mitchell Trubisky had five touchdown passes well before halftime en route to a 38-3 lead. But this will certainly put a cloud over things for the Bears.
