Devin Hester: “I went 100 percent today, I am ready to go”

SHARE Devin Hester: “I went 100 percent today, I am ready to go”

The Bears will list wide receiver Devin Hester as questionable on the injury report, but he is expected to start on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

“I went 100 percent today,” Hester said. “I’m ready to go.”

Hester was coy about whether or not he will remain as the punt returner if he’s not 100 percent. It’s a task that could be handled by Earl Bennett.

Coach Lovie Smith also said that free safety Danieal Manning, who was added to the injury report Thursday with a back issue, had a good practice. He is also expected to start.

We’ll check in later on when the official injury report is released.
