LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Devin Hester appears to be back to his havoc-wreaking ways for the Chicago Bears.
Ineffective a year ago, the three-time Pro Bowl pick returned five kickoffs for a team-record 249 yards in last week's win over Minnesota. He'll try to keep it up against Pittsburgh on Sunday.
It's been more than just a few games since Hester broke off the sort of returns that he kept delivering against Minnesota, and many were wondering if at age 30 he could recapture the touch that made him one of the best ever. Hester says he's been in situations where he's had big games and then gone a few without a big return.
