Devin Hester Removed From Injury Report; Will Play Vs Chiefs

Chicago Bears wide receiver and return specialist Devin Hester was removed from the team's practice participation report on Friday and will play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Hester popped up on the report on Thursday for non-injury reasons. The club declined to disclose why Hester had to leave practice, but it's believed that his absence was related to a court case involving the individual who assaulted the Pro Bowl return specialist at an area casino during the lockout.

Once again excelling in the return game, Hester is averaging 19.4 yards on 19 punt returns with two returns for touchdowns and has a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown on the season. Hester has been bothered by rib and ankle injuries this season, decreasing his role as a receiver. Through 11 games, Hester has just 22 receptions for 320 yards and one touchdown, and has not been targeted with a pass since Week 9.
