The Chicago Tribune wrote in this morning’s paper that Devin Hester would miss Sunday’s game against the Packers if he sat out another practice Friday.
A calf injury is expected to keep Chicago’s top receiver sidelined for the team’s rivalry game, which is more bad news for the sagging Bears passing attack.
Early in the season, at least the Bears racked up passing yards, if not wins. Now they are struggling to move the ball at all.
Hester isn’t quite the “number one” receiver the Bears call him, but he has taken a big step forward this season. He has already set career highs with 54 catches and 682 yards.
