Bears will be without Devin Hester on Sunday vs. Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks will not have to worry about kicking to Devin Hester on Sunday, as the Bears return specialist has been ruled out with a concussion.


Chicago Bears return specialist and wide receiver Devin Hester will not play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Hester suffered a concussion in the Bears' Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings and was forced to leave the game. He has not passed the required tests and has been ruled out for the game against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Hester has returned 26 punts for 207 yards and 18 kickoffs for 459 yards this season. His 17 combined career kick return touchdowns is the most in NFL history. He also has 18 receptions for 203 yards and a touchdown this season as a receiver.

The Bears have also ruled out guard Chris Spencer for Sunday's game. Spencer injured his knee against the Vikings. Running back Matt Forte, cornerback Charles Tillman, and linebacker Lance Briggs have all been limited in practice this week after suffering injuries against the Vikings as well.

The Seahawks travel to Soldier Field to take on the Bears at 10 a.m. PT on Sunday, Dec. 2.
