Devin Hester was supposed to be the Bears’ top receiver this season. He might not even be their top receiver named Devin.
Last week Devin Aromashodu got his first start of the season in place of the injured Hester, and Aromashodu stepped up with eight catches for 76 yards and a touchdown — a more productive outing than Hester has had in recent weeks.
Today Hester is listed as doubtful for the Bears’ game against the Ravens, and John Czarnecki of FoxSports.com reports that Aromashodu is starting for Hester again.
Ordinarily, it’s not good news for a team to lose its No. 1 receiver. For the Bears, it might not be a bad thing.
