Bears lose Hester for rest of game

Devin Hester AP

With a 22-point lead in the first half, the Bears don’t need receiver Devin Hester.  And that’s a good thing, because they won’t have him.

Hester has been scratched for the balance of the game with a concussion.

The question becomes whether he’ll be cleared for next week’s visit from Seattle, and if not whether he’ll be available for the Week 14 trip to Minnesota.

In Hester’s absence, Eric Weems has been getting additional snaps.  If Hester can’t get clearance to play next week, the Bears could need more bodies; Alshon Jeffery already is out with a knee injury.

    They should be alright today. It’s only the Vikings.

    Eric weems isn’t as explosive as Hester, but I think he’s a much more fundamentally sound receiver.

    He should be backing up the CBs anyway. He’s good as a wrinkle in the passing game but he just isn’t a good WR. He is the best ever returner but that doesn’t translate into a WR.
