Tuesday was the deadline for receiver Johnny Knox to return to practice off the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list, meaning Knox will remain on the list the rest of the season, although the Bears did not officially announce the move.
Knox continues to recover from spinal fusion surgery. He had the procedure after absorbing a devastating hit from defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove in a game against the Seahawks in December.
Devin Hester expressed frustration for his close friend.
"It's very disappointing because when the doctors are telling you one thing and then the time comes around, it's not what they told you,'' Hester said. "You get frustrated because you're wondering if you're ever going to be the same and you're wondering, `So why are y'all telling me, hoping that I'm going to be right by this certain period of time and it's not there yet?'
"It's kind of a downer for him because he's in a position where he's fighting to get back to being a normal person and being able to get back on the field.''
Hester has attempted to keep Knox positive throughout.
"I still mess around with him and joke around with him every now and then,'' Hester said. "At the same time, stuff gets hard on him. Certain days you can see where he wishes he could be out there with us practicing. You see that in his face. But I'm happy that he's still around and that we get to talk and chill every now and then.'' Source: Chicago Tribune Attached Thumbnails
