CHICAGO -- Greetings from Soldier Field, where I can confirm the wind has already kicked up enough for the American flags around the plaza to be whipping at right angles. Inside the stadium, where the winds are less predictable, the flags above the goal posts are fluttering lazily. Take that amateur observation for what it's worth.
I want to point you in the direction of some information tweeted Sunday morning by ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson. Indications are that Chicago Bears receiver/kick returner Devin Hester (ankle) will be active for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, but he won't be at full strength and might not be a big part of the Bears' offense.
