The Chicago Bears have officially ruled out wide receiver Devin Hester and offensive lineman Chris Spencer for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, reports Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com.
Ruled out on Thursday for a home game against the Seahawks were guard Chris Spencer (knee) and receiver Devin Hester (concussion).
Spencer and Hester were each injured during last weekend’s contest against the Minnesota Vikings, as was offensive lineman Lance Louis, who has been placed on season-ending injured reserve. While the loss of Hester will hurt on offense and special teams, Spencer’s absence only further depletes an already questionable Bears’ offensive line.
While the Bears have confirmed they will be without Hester and Spencer Sunday, linebacker Lance Briggs (ankle), tight end Kellen Davis (ankle) and cornerback Charles Tillman (ankle) all practice Thursday at a limited capacity after sitting out Wednesday due to injury. Running back Matt Forte (ankle) practiced for the second day in a row, though he was also limited.
