Hester (toe) returned to practice Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Hester was placed on the Falcons' injured reserve/designated to return list after Week 4 due to a lingering bout with turf toe. Now healthy enough to practice, Hester is eligible to return to game action in Week 13, which would mostly figure to help Atlanta's special teams.

Falcons wide receiver Devin Hester (toe) has been placed on injured reserve/designated to return, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Hester missed the first four games of the season, and he won't be eligible to return until Week 13.

Falcons wide receiver Devin Hester (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. With Hester yet to play this season, Nick Williams and Eric Weems have provided depth behind the trio of Julio Jones, Roddy White and Leonard Hankerson. Once healthy, Hester will likely be the No. 4 wide receiver, in addition to handling punt and kickoff returns. Weems has done a mediocre job as the return man through three games.
Falcons wide receiver Devin Hester (toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Falcons' official site reports. Hester's return is a positive development, but this could merely be a baby step as he attempts to rid himself of a turf toe injury. Once he's deemed active, he could be contained to return duties, as the Falcons' passing attack has fared well with Leonard Hankerson in a complementary role to Julio Jones.
