Bears not too concerned about Devin Hester injury

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears receiver Devin Hester, who scored two touchdowns Sunday night, didn't finish the game because of a chest injury.

But Bears coach Lovie Smith downplayed the severity of it Monday.

"Shouldn't be serious," he said. "We're going to put it in the bumps and bruises section."

Receiver Earl Bennett has missed four games with a chest injury. But his is considered far more serious than Hester's.

Bennett fully participated in last Friday's practice, although he was inactive against the Minnesota Vikings.

Asked more about Hester's injury, Smith said, "Whenever Devin Hester isn't on the field and doesn't finish, I'm concerned.

"But we weren't too concerned about it and we aren't still."
