Devin Hester described his 2015 offensive role as "up in the air" under new OC Kyle Shanahan.
"We're just figuring out the offense, figuring out who fits best in what positions and what routes we're running," Hester said. Hester is a gadget guy on offense who primarily caught bubble screens last year, finishing with a 38-504-2 receiving line. This year, Hester is trying to hold off Leonard Hankerson and rookie Justin Hardy for snaps behind Roddy White and Julio Jones. Jun 14 - 6:57 PM

Devin Hester caught four passes for 32 yards in the Falcons' Week 17 loss to the Panthers.

Signed to a three-year contract in March, we all laughed when the Falcons said they had plans to use Hester on offense. He ended up posting a four-year-high in catches (38) and five-year-high in yards (504) to go along with three touchdowns. Hester will be back as the Falcons' return man and No. 4 receiver.

Devin Hester caught five passes for 85 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 15 loss to the Steelers.

Hester saw his snaps and usage rise with Julio Jones (hip) inactive. He was targeted six times as the No. 3 receiver, scoring from 17 yards out in the second quarter and then ripping off a 46-yard gain on a screen pass. Even with the fine statistical output, Hester won't be a recommended fantasy play in Week 16.

Devin Hester (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Hester left Week 10 with an ankle injury and didn't return. The Falcons haven't had any concern about his status and expect him to practice on a limited basis Thursday. Hester will only be needed on offense if Harry Douglas has a setback.

Devin Hester was forced from Week 10 against the Bucs with an ankle injury.

Hester hurt his ankle on a fourth-quarter kick return. On offense, he was targeted four times, securing one pass for five yards. His biggest play was a flat-out drop of a 19-yard touchdown in the end zone on third-and-goal in the first quarter. With Harry Douglas back healthy, Hester isn't needed on offense.

Devin Hester (hamstring) is active for Week 6 against the Bears.

The gadget player is good to go against his former team. Inactive for the Falcons are WR Harry Douglas, QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OT Cameron Bradfield, OG Harland Gunn and DT Cliff Matthews. Douglas (foot) remains week to week.
