(670 The Score) Bears defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (knee) is officially active and will play the team's game with the Raiders in London.

After saying Hicks would be a game-time decision, the Bears will return their Pro Bowl defensive lineman less than two weeks after suffering a knee injury at Washington. He missed last Sunday's win over the Vikings.

The Bears are without starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who is dealing with a left shoulder injury. The team is hopeful he can return after the bye next week. Chase Daniel will start at quarterback for the Bears. Tyler Bray was elevated from the practice squad to serve as the backup. Tight end Bradley Sowell was released in a corresponding roster move.

Trubisky, Taylor Gabriel (concussion), Ted Larsen (knee), Duke Shelley, Joel Iyiegbuniwe, Riley Ridley and Bilal Nichols are officially inactive. Gabriel and Larsen did not travel with the team to London.

The Raiders ruled receiver Tyrell Williams (foot) as inactive.

Kickoff between the Bears (3-1) and Raiders (2-2) comes at noon CT (6 p.m. GMT) from London's Tottehnam Stadium.
