Devin Hester held out of practice

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

It is far from the greatest game of his career, but Devin Hester's performance as a rookie in the 2006 game at Arizona is the one that propelled him into living rooms around the country as the Bears mounted one of the greatest comebacks in the history of "Monday Night Football.'' Hester's 83-yard punt return for a touchdown put the Bears over the top in a 24-23 comeback victory in a game they trailed 20-0 at halftime.

And as the Bears began preparations for their meeting with the Cardinals on Sunday, Hester was not practicing this afternoon at Halas Hall. He suffered an ankle or foot injury in the win over Cleveland and that is believed to be what has him sidelined. We'll see what kind of light coach Lovie Smith wants to shine on the issue after practice.

Safety Craig Steltz, who was knocked out of the game with a bruised left biceps, was on the practice field.

I have watched a lot of football games in my life, but that 2006 Arizona game was off the charts!

That must be why the punter who runs a 7 second forty was able to tackle the greatest return man the game has ever known, the Devin Hester.

By the time it is all over Devin Hester will own all of the return records and have a place in the NFL Hall of Fame.

Unless of course he continues to be tackled by those speedy punters!

Devin, kick some a$$ this Sunday, remember the tirade by the Cards coach after that Monday night game, he was pi$$ed.

"They are who we thought they were" this quote will live in infamy.
