Though DeCicco played some middle linebacker when Urlacher was sidelined with a knee injury in training camp, he's unlikely to fill Urlacher's role if the veteran is forced to sit against the Minnesota Vikings. The Bears finished Sunday's game with Nick Roach in the middle and Geno Hayes sliding into Roach's normal spot at strongside linebacker.
DeCicco could fill Hayes' role on special teams. DeCicco had groin surgery earlier in the season and worked out with several teams before returning to Chicago. The terms of his injury settlement dictated he could not return to the Bears until after Week 10.
