In case you missed it, the old Devin Hester is back on returns for the Bears.
He returned two kickoffs against the Vikings for 100 yards. He had a 42-yard punt return. He even threw in four catches and a 19-yard touchdown. Hester’s work on returns earned him the NFC special teams player of the week.
“Devin has it going right now,” said coach Lovie Smith. “Guys are doing a great job blocking for him and he’s feeling it as far as thinking he can go the distance each time.”
Hester returns home to Miami Thursday, where he’ll try to set the all-time record for most career return touchdowns.
