LAKE FOREST – Bears defensive tackle Akiem Hicks and outside linebacker Khalil Mack have yet to practice this week, both nursing injuries.

Tight end Jesse James (personal reasons), tight end J.P. Holtz (quad), linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe (hamstring) and running back David Montgomery (knee) also sat out practice. Receiver Darnell Mooney (groin) was limited.

Safety Deon Bush (shoulder), quarterback Andy Dalton (knee), safety Tashaun Gipson (hamstring), tight end Jesper Horsted (knee) and running back Damien Williams (quad) are dealing with injuries but were full participants in practice.

The Bears visit the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
