Hunter Hillenmeyer, who is out for the season after being put on injured reserve with a concussion, will be missed on several levels by teammates, coaches and reporters. But he will remain the team's NFL Players Association representative.
''We played with Hunter for a long time, so for him not to be here or in that linebacker meeting room, it's kind of sad,'' teammate Lance Briggs said. ''He came in today [Thursday] and said his last little piece. But on the flip side it's good to have him represent us. He'll have more free time to represent the union.''
