Devin Hester: Doesn't plan to retire
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hester (toe) does not plan to retire after being released by the Falcons on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Hester played just five games while battling a toe injury for the majority of last season, eventually undergoing surgery in January with a recovery timetable estimated at 4-6 months. Though it's possible the toe is still a concern, Hester did pass a physical before he was released by Atlanta, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. Hester's reputation should ensure that he gets a chance to compete for a return job with another team, but he'll likely be on the roster bubble wherever he lands. He played just one snap on offense last season, and he wasn't particularly impressive as a return man during his two-year stint in Atlanta. Regardless of how his career ends, the 33-year-old long ago cemented his reputation as the best return specialist in NFL history, recording four separate seasons with three or more special teams TDs.

Devin Hester: Released on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hester (toe) was released by the Falcons on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Hester dealt with a toe injury throughout most of the 2015 season, playing in just five games and eventually undergoing surgery in January. He didn't have a role in the Atlanta offense, strictly working as a return specialist when he was active after catching 38 passes for 504 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. While arguably the best return man in NFL history, Hester could have trouble finding work, as he's 33 and may still be recovering from the surgery.

Falcons' Devin Hester: Still not cleared
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hester (toe) still hasn't been cleared to run yet, ESPN.com reports.

Hester underwent surgery on his right big toe in January, a procedure that coincided with a 4-to-6 month recovery timetable. Although he's approaching the four-month mark, he's been limited to jogging and ladder drills in offseason workouts thus far. At 33 years old, Hester is being cautious with his rehab, but also knows that if he's unable to return kicks as the season grows closer, his $3 million salary cap figure would make him a candidate to be cut, particularly with the Falcons drafting receiver/returner Devin Fuller over the weekend.

Falcons' Devin Hester: To begin rehab soon
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hester (toe) will begin a rehab program next week, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Hester underwent surgery on his right big toe in January and has spent the last two months in a cast or walking boot, but he's progressed to the point that he expects to begin jogging in roughly a month and a half. He appears to be ahead of the original 3-to-6 month timetable handed down back in January, though the rehab process is expected to last at least a couple of months, so it's quite possible Hester could be limited when OTAs start up in May.

Falcons' Devin Hester: Out 3-to-6 months due to toe surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Devin 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 Atlanta 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.
