Calf injury still limiting Devin Hester

Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester missed a game for just the second time in his career on Sunday when he sat out the loss to the Green Bay Packers with a calf injury. When the Bears return to the practice field on Wednesday, Hester isn’t expected to be out there.

Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune reports that Hester, who didn’t practice at all last week, is expected to be sidelined when the Bears return to the practice field this week as well. It’s not clear yet whether Hester will be on the field for the Bears’ next game, against the Baltimore Ravens.

With Hester out, Jay Cutler’s top receivers on Sunday against the Packers were Devin Aromashodu and Johnny Knox. Cutler completed 13 of the 19 passes he threw to them, for 159 yards and two touchdowns.

McClure also reports that Bears left tackle Orlando Pace is expected to be a full participant in this week’s practice after missing Sunday’s game.

    I wouldn’t mind if Orlando Pace never took a snap for the Bears ever again… It’d be nice to see Chris Williams actually play his position for more than a couple games…
    …and with the Bears out of the playoff picture, I wouldn’t be surprised if we barely saw Hester anymore for the rest of the season. I couldn’t imagine that he’s anywhere near any escalators in his contract…

    To talk about Hester as if he’s a vital cog of the Bears’ offense is just silly. They suck with him and they suck without him. If they really want to maximize his impact, they’d have him returning kicks again and line him up as a 3rd receiver.

    Who cares? The Bears made horrible off season decisions and a ball dropping receiver and a penalty prone offensive lineman won’t help or hurt anymore. Hopefully this is the start of a not to fond farewell to Turner, Angelo and Smith.

    Yea, I’m a fan……..Bears suck. A win against Green Bay would have been huge within a lousy season. CLEAN OUT THE F…ING GARAGE!!!

    they realy need him back in the line up.turner can’t call that wide reciever screen without him.can’t they just fire him now?seriously the waterboy could call plays and they would not be as bad as his play calling.let’s see 3rd. down and 26 and he calls a screen that gets 3 yards.I know there are not many plays that will get you that many yards but a screen pass?or how about another 3rd and 1 and a run up the middle for no gain?this is part of the reason they suck so bad this year.name another team or coach that does this kind of play calling.you can’t because nobody is that bad but him.

    Shrug it off.
    Now if something happens to the Bears punter, let us know immediately. That could cripple them.

    Lovie will play hester the last three games because he is not the least bit interested in seeing Knox, Aromashodu and Juaquin Iglesias prove what they can or cannot do.
    He wants to go 6-10 or 7-9 and then claim that they are close and it was injuries that hampered them.
    Bullshit Lovie.
    Everyone here wants you and Angelo gone yesterday and while your stupid act may fool an old lady like Virginia McCaskey no one else is buying it.
    Go latch onto your pal Tony Dungy’s ass for a while.

    who cares? he’s a mediocre receiver, and is too scared to run punts and kicks back with any tenacity anymore…
