Bears return man Devin Hester has a rib injury that is expected to keep him sidelined Sunday against the Bucs

Like every breathing football fan, Joe loves watching the Bears’ Devin Hester return punts and kicks.  Dante Hall, aka The Human Torch, passed the flame to Hester in 2006. And the Deion Sanders disciple has lit up the NFL.

The Bucs catch a major break Sunday, as Hester has a rib injury and is unlikely to play, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

Hester’s big impact on a game is field position, which is critical to the success of Bears QB Kyle Orton, who sucks.

Both Orton and Brian Griese can not be counted on to lead their teams on long touchdown drives. Orton’s longest TD drive over the first two games is only 54 yards, and he has not tossed a TD this season.

The loss of Hester should put more pressure on Orton, which is a good thing. The Bucs are going to need big plays on defense to win this game. …Unless you think Son of Bob is going to light it up by spreading the field to Michael Clayton and Antonio Bryant. Yeah, right.
