Bears linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer had surgery last week on his thumb and sat out practice Monday. He could miss some time, but he has not yet been ruled out of this week’s game against Detroit.
If Hillenmeyer can’t play, Nick Roach and Jamar Williams likely would get the bulk of playing time in his stead.
