Bears kick returner/receiver Devin Hester suffered a concussion in the first half of the game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Hester was ruled out in the second quarter after heading to the Bears’ locker room to be evaluated. Veteran Eric Weems took over Hester’s spots on offense and special teams.
Hester had a six-yard punt return early in the first quarter, getting tackled by safety Harrison Smith. But briefly remained in the game following the hit.
It’s been an up-and-down season for Hester so far. He’s yet to return a kick for a touchdown, while having 18 catches for 203 yards and one TD.
