Bears' Devin Hester: 'I'm getting better'

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

It was a good sign that Bears kick returner/receiver Devin Hester was out and about Tuesday as he continues to recover from his concussion.

In front of a jubilant crowd of students, Hester presented Calumet PSD 132 with a $10,000 NFL Play 60 grant for health and wellness programming.

"For any Chicago Bear player to come in here and present an award to these guys, it's a big honor," Hester said.

As far as his own health, Hester is taking things one day at a time. He suffered his concussion in the Bears' victory against the Minnesota Vikings on Nov. 25. He sat out the Bears' loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday and hasn't practiced since getting diagnosed with a concussion.

"I'm getting better as the days go," Hester said. "I can't really tell from this point on, but the progress is getting better and better.

"I'm playing it safe, and when the time comes when they clear me, I'll be ready."

Hester said he didn't know how many tests he has left to pass in order to play this week against the Vikings.

"Pretty much all I know is I'm getting better each and every day," Hester said.

Honestly...Why should we care if Hester is getting better?. Has anyone really watched his play this season?..Its pathetic. IMO he is a liability on the field. He catches a 5 yard pass, and throws himself at the feet of the defender. He catches a punt, dances left, right and to the rear, and gets tackled for a loss. I hope he stays out all year. Give someone who wants to succeed a chance! Id cut him at the end of the year. Im sure no one will want to trade for him!
