Falcons released KR/WR Devin Hester.
Hester struggled to recover from January surgery to repair two broken sesamoid bones in his right big toe, but it is possible he would have been cut even without the injury. Primarily a kick returner in his two seasons with Atlanta, Hester's value has been damaged by the new kickoff rules. He could latch on somewhere else if he is able to get healthy, but the 33-year-old is nearing the end of the line. Jul 26 - 10:21 AM

Devin Hester (toe) says he’s about 75 percent healthy.

Hester hasn’t been cleared to run five months after surgery. He’s sitting out OTAs and will miss the entire offseason. Hester’s training camp status is up in the air.
Jun 1 - 7:21 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Devin Hester (toe surgery) could be fully recovered for training camp.

"He’s able to do certain things, but he can’t do it all," Quinn said. "I don’t know that I have a timeline, but we’re hopeful it’s prior to camp." Hester still hasn't been cleared to run after January surgery. He's going to miss all of OTAs and remains questionable for camp.
May 14 - 2:47 PM

Falcons KR/WR Devin Hester (toe) has not been cleared to run.

Hester was limited to five games last season because of two broken sesamoid bones in his right big toe. He had surgery to repair the issue in January. Hester should be ready for training camp, but his spot on the roster is anything but secure, especially with the new kickoff rules hurting the value of return men.

Falcons KR/WR Devin Hester is rehabbing in Orlando following offseason foot surgery.

The return specialist appeared in just five games last season and wasn't targeted in the passing game. The NFL made another tweak to its kickoff rules this week but head coach Dan Quinn said he'd still give Hester the green light if he's healthy. Hester is the NFL's all-time leader with 20 return touchdowns (14 punt, five kickoff and one missed field goal).
Mar 25 - 3:07 PM

Falcons KR/WR Devin Hester will be sidelined 3-6 months after undergoing toe surgery last week.

He should be ready for training camp, but the toe gave Hester fits all season long. He missed the first 11 games with turf toe before being activated off short-term I.R. in December. Hester's surgery repaired a broken sesamoid bone. At age 33, Hester is a release candidate at his $3.5 million salary.

Jan 19 - 1:43 AM

Falcons activated Devin Hester off injured reserve-designated to return.

He'll make his season debut Sunday after missing the first 11 games with a toe injury. An elite return specialist, Hester's offensive contributions have always been few and far between. He's not a fantasy option.
Fri, Dec 4, 2015 02:23:00 PM

Devin Hester (toe, IR/recall) has been cleared to play this week against Tampa Bay.

Atlanta should activate Hester from injured reserve-designated to return this week. He will be nothing but a situational player, but Hester could provide a big play or two for an offense in need.
Mon, Nov 30, 2015 09:41:00 AM

Devin Hester (toe, IR/recall) returned to practice Monday.

Hester is not eligible to return until Week 13, but getting back to practice this early in the process suggests he will be ready to go by then. Hester has yet to play in a game this season. He will be a situational offensive player once he returns.
Mon, Nov 16, 2015 11:13:00 AM

Devin Hester (toe, I.R./recall) is expected to begin running soon.

"All steps are moving in the right direction for him," HC Dan Quinn said. "He's working extremely hard to get back." Hester's turf toe has sidelined him all season. He can resume practicing in two weeks, but isn’t eligible to return until Week 13.
Fri, Oct 30, 2015 08:05:00 PM

Falcons placed Devin Hester (turf toe) on injured reserve/designated to return.

He hasn't played yet this season. When Hester returns, he'll slide in behind Julio Jones, Leonard Hankerson and Roddy White on the Falcons' wide receiver depth chart. Even when healthy, he's not a fantasy consideration.
Tue, Oct 6, 2015 01:28:00 PM

Devin Hester (toe) has been ruled out for Week 4.

Hester returned to practice this week, but isn’t ready for games. Nick Williams will continue to play in four-wide sets. Hester is questionable for Week 5.
Fri, Oct 2, 2015 08:38:00 PM

Devin Hester (toe) returned to limited practice Wednesday.

Hester has a chance to return this week after missing the first three games. He'll handle return duties if active and should see time in four-wide sets.
Wed, Sep 30, 2015 07:15:00 PM

Falcons declared WR Devin Hester, RB Tevin Coleman, LB Brooks Reed, OT Jake Long, C Gino Gradkowski, and OT Bryce Harris inactive for Week 3 against Dallas.

Hester is week to week with turf toe. Devonta Freeman will start in place of Coleman. Long has a chance to be active in Week 4.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 11:37:00 AM

Devin Hester (turf toe) has been ruled out for Week 3.
