Chicago Bears Injury Report, Week 10: Devin Hester Status 'Murky' Vs. Detroit Lions

The Chicago Bears are gearing up for their game against the Detroit Lions this weekend, but their player with the most gears -- kick-returning wide receiver Devin Hester -- was once again on Thursday's practice report. Hester could be key against the Lions considering both their kicker and punter are dealing with injury issues.

The Bears didn't practice on Wednesday, but Hester was given the designation of Did Not Practice on Wednesday's mandatory injury report regardless. On Thursday, though, he actually didn't practice -- and it caught the Chicago Tribune a bit off guard.

Devin Hester said he expected to be OK when he pulled a slipper on his left foot Monday night in the locker room in Philadelphia, but the Chicago Bears wide receiver didn't practice Thursday at Halas Hall.

Hester suffered a sprained left ankle in the fourth quarter of the victory over the Eagles. He had an Ace bandage wrap on it after the game, not a walking boot that is often used for more serious injuries.

Defensive end Julius Pepppers and offensive tackle Gabe Carimi also missed practice for the second straight day while defensive tackle Matt Toeaina didn't practice after he was given the designation as a full participant in Wednesday's (non)practice.

The full injury report from Thursday is included below.
