Bears receiver Devin Hester has a mild calf strain, an injury that should not keep him from playing against the Green Bay Packers next Sunday at Soldier Field
Hester injured his left calf on a third-quarter run play today in the Bears' 17-9 victory over the Rams. He fumbled the ball, then recovered. Hester left with just over 13 minutes remaining in the quarter and did not return.
"When I hit the ground, my calf was feeling funny,'' Hester said. "We're going to test it out tomorrow. It's just real sore right now, really fresh. Tomorrow we'll see how it feels."
Hester will not need an MRI. He is likely to practice at some point this week.
