Bears’ Hester leaves game with chest injury

Bears wide receiver Devin Hester left Sunday’s game against the

Minnesota Vikings because of a chest injury after scoring two long


Hester caught a 48-yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler on

Chicago’s first possession, and ran a kickoff back 98 yards early

in the third quarter to extend his record for combined kick-return

scores to 16.

Hester caught a pass at the end of the third quarter and the

Bears announced he was out early in the fourth.

Chicago also lost tight end Kellen Davis to an elbow injury.

Minnesota lost center John Sullivan and safety Jamarca Sanford

to concussions. Sullivan was on the field for the Vikings’ first

series in the third quarter and then left the game. Sanford left

midway through the quarter.

It was not clear how either injury happened.
