Devin Hester plays, makes Lions pay

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears kept receiver/return man Devin Hester (ankle) off the team's inactive list for Sunday's NFC North clash with the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field and were rewarded when he returned a punt 82 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter of their 37-13 win.

Hester left the field in the first half and did not return due to illness. He also returned a first-quarter punt 29 yards to set up a Matt Forte touchdown and had a 35-yard return negated by a penalty.

Hester's availability was in question this week after the receiver sustained a sprained ankle in Chicago's win over the Eagles. The Bears listed Hester on the injury report as questionable after he missed practice all week only to fight through a bout with illness that seemed to further jeopardize his availability.
