Devin Hester is a forgotten man these days. Though still a very dangerous returner — arguably the best in NFL history — his role in the Chicago Bears’ offense has diminished, seemingly by the week. The four-time Pro Bowler has just two catches thus far, in addition to a pair of rushes. The paltry numbers have dismayed Hester, who expressed unhappiness with the way he’s being utilized. “It’s hard being one of the top electrifying players in the league and you’re not able to get your hands on the ball as much as you want,” Hester said Friday, via ESPNChicago.com. “They know I want the ball. I just have to keep working at it, keep my head up, and get better every day. And don’t let it distract me.” Hester is not a primary option in Mike Tice’s offense, a stark contrast from how former coordinator Mike Martz used him. Through his first three games last season, Hester had seven catches for 139 yards as an outlet for quarterback Jay Cutler. Tice acknowledges plays are being drawn up
