Hester sitting it out

Pro Bowl return specialist Devin Hester is inactive today because of the torn rib cartilage that he suffered last week against the Panthers. Danieal Manning is expected to return kickoffs in Hester's absence, and cornerback Nate Vasher will handle punt returns. Defensive tackle Anthony Adams, who started all four preseason games and nine games last season, was also inactive Sunday for the third straight week. The Bears' other inactives were rookie safety Craig Steltz (ankle), guard Dan Buenning, rookie offensive tackle Chris Williams (back), defensive tackle Matt Toeaina and rookie wide receiver Earl Bennett. Rookie Caleb Hanie was the third quarterback.
