Devin Hester Injury: Bears Aren't Concerned With Injury

Chicago Bears wide receiver/kick returner Devin Hester injured his ankle in the middle of the fourth quarter of Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, if comments made by head coach Love Smith on Tuesday are any indication, it's not going to be a big deal.

Hester left the game midway through the fourth quarter with a left ankle injury. He walked off the field gingerly but suggested afterward he would be fine.

"He came out of it in pretty good shape," Smith said of Hester.

The Bears should have Hester back as they try to build on their win over the Eagles when they take on revived Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Hester has 22 catches for 320 yards and a touchdown so far in 2011 as well as a kick return touchdown and Chicago is counting on him to keep making opponents gameplan for him.
