Devin Hester

Postby The Lung » Sun Oct 04, 2009 1:21 pm

Devin Hester went to the locker room in the second quarter of Sunday's game with an shoulder injury.

Hester was hit hard on a touchdown-saving tackle just short of the goal line, and may have suffered a stinger. The injury did not appear to be serious, but Hester has been deemed "questionable" to return.

good news.

Rotoworld:

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that Devin Hester's Week 4 injury was to his neck, but it is not serious.

It was probably a stinger and won't keep him out of any games. The Bears have a bye in Week 5 anyways. The injury limited Chicago in the vertical passing game Sunday, but Hester should be 100 percent for the Falcons in Week 5.


I was really hoping to benefit on cutler to hester against the lions d. Hopefully he'll still come through covering a bye week.

I'll post this in each of the Bears injury threads, for the record.

With the bye week, the Bears do not have to issue an actual injury report. They have been historically deceptive with their injury information... saying someone is back to 100% and then keeping him out (Charles Tillman last season, for example) and vice versa. Consider this, and the unofficial nature of any injury information from now until a week from Wednesday if you're considering trades that include Hester, Knox, or Forte (only significant in that the Mini Adrian Peterson is also hurt, and he'd get more carries than Wolfe does.)

That is all.

There seem to be conflicting reports about Hester's practice participation today.
The news from Rotowire sounds good...
Hester (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona, but he practiced without limitations on Friday and is expected to start, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Spin:
"I went 100 percent today," Hester said. "I'm ready to go." The Bears may pull Hester off his punt return duties Sunday, but he's expected to play a full complement of snaps on offense.

...but Rotoworld has a completely different take:
Updating a previous item, Devin Hester's (ankle) practice participation Friday was "limited." He's listed as questionable for Week 9.
However, both ESPN's John Clayton and Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun Times report that Hester will be active against the Cardinals. The injury does make Hester a slightly more risky play than usual in the favorable matchup.

So everyone seems to agree that he'll start, but the severity of his injury is unsettled. Anybody have a reliable source that can sort this out?
