Devin Hester sits again

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Bears receiver Devin Hester is not practicing again tonight. He dressed on Friday night but only did a couple of warm up drills.

Hester told me earlier that he was not injured. Previously, Bears coach Lovie Smith said he was sore.

Mark Anderson is also not practicing tonight. Not sure why. But this gives Israel Idonije a chance to shine since they're fighting for the starting defensive end spot opposite Julius Peppers. It will also give young players like Henry Melton a chance to make some plays.

Other notable players not working tonight include Danieal Manning, Earl Bennett and Josh Bullocks.

It's probably by design to watch Devin Hester's workload closely in training camp. Remember his legs didn't make it all the way through last year. Since his game is all about speed and quickness, he is not really worth very much to the team on sore wheels.

There's Melton's name again. It looks like he is one of last year's draft picks who has a chance to make it. He was drafted as a good football player who did not really have a position. Does he do anything special on special teams I wonder? Kind of hard to see from the deep south, but guys like Gilbert and Afalava seem to be slowly disappearing?
