    Devin Hester didn't catch any passes in the Chicago Bears' 10-3 win over the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, but he continues to catch the praise of teammates and coaches for his development as a receiver in training camp.

    "He's just come out flying," backup quarterback Caleb Hanie said Monday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "We all know he's got speed and he's quick and he can make amazing plays and make guys miss and take it to the house on any given down any time he gets the ball, but … being where you need to be and not second guessing your release or knowing whether you're going first on a switch release or going second, that's the stuff Devin fought through last season.

    "This year, he's really been on point. He's hit the ground running from where he left off. He's been one of Jay [Cutler's] favorite targets in practice. So we're real impressed with him and I've heard nothing but good things from [receivers coach] Darryl Drake and [offensive coordinator Mike] Martz about his improvement and development."
