    Falcons' Devin Hester: Out 3-to-6 months due to toe surgery

    Hester will require 3-to-6 months to recover from surgery on his right big toe, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Hester was sidelined from the Falcons' third preseason game through Week 12 due to a broken sesamoid bone. Strictly used in the return game but for one offensive snap down the stretch, he compiled eight punt returns for 34 yards and nine kick returns for 235 yards, marking the 10th consecutive season in which he posted more than 20 yards per return in the latter realm. The 33-year-old will now don a cast for the first three months and a walking boot thereafter, with no rehab scheduled until he's spent about a month in the boot.

    Falcons' Devin Hester: Active for Sunday's game

    Hester (toe) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The toe issue limited Hester in practice all week, but he was still given a probable designation and as expected, he'll suit up for a critical divisional matchup. Hester has played in just three games this season and hasn't been a factor in the passing game, logging no targets in any contest.

    Falcons' Devin Hester: Active Sunday

    Hester (toe) is active Sunday against the Buccaneers. Hester was activated from short-term injured reserve Friday and will be active right away in the hope of replacing some of the production lost thanks to Leonard Hankerson's season-ending hamstring injury.

    Falcons' Devin Hester: Activated from short-term IR

    Hester (toe) was activated from short-term injured reserve Friday afternoon, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. With Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) placed on season-ending injured reserve for the corresponding transaction, the Falcons will likely turn to Hester and/or Justin Hardy to fill the No. 3 wide receiver role. Perhaps more important, Hester figures to step in for Eric Weems as the top returner on punts and kickoffs. Outside of return-yardage leagues, Hester can be left on the wire.

    Falcons' Devin Hester: Cleared for Week 13

    Hester (toe) has been cleared to play in the Falcons' Week 13 matchup in Tampa Bay, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. As expected, Hester will be available Week 13 after having been placed on the IR/designated-to-return list after Week 4 with the turf toe injury. His return will likely provide a spark in the return game, as well as a potential deep threat for quarterback Matt Ryan, although Hester's fantasy value remains limited for the time being.

    Falcons' Devin Hester: Returns to practice

    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 WR Devin Hester has ditched walking boot

    Falcons wideout/returner Devin Hester has ditched his walking boot and expects to return in Week 13 at Tampa Bay, reports Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. The bout with turf toe eventually forced the team to place Hester on the IR/designated-to-return list after the first four weeks, pushing back his initial appearance of 2015.

    Falcons place WR Devin Hester on short-term IR

    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. If he were healthy, he'd likely just the No. 3 wide receiver, albeit with a key role in the return game.

    Falcons rule out WR Devin Hester for Week 4 vs. Texans

    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 WR Devin Hester (toe) gets limited run in practice

    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.
