11:14 AM ET 12.08 | Quietly, the Bears moved Earl Bennett into the starting lineup last month against the 49ers in San Francisco. So, with the wide receiver sidelined for Sunday's game against the Vikings at Minnesota with a concussion, it's worth wondering if Devin Hester or Alshon Jeffrey will start in his place. Hester is returning after missing one game with a concussion and Jeffrey has missed the last two games after arthroscopic knee surgery and six of the last seven as he also was sidelined with a broken right hand. The Bears are counting on both to provide a boost in the passing game with Brandon Marshall nine receptions shy of 100. Hester has six starts this season and Jeffrey two. Considering the extensive practice time Jeffrey has missed, the assignment could go to Hester.

"Bears to decide on starting wide receiver"

Really? They're not going to send out only 9 or 10 guys because they can't make up their minds?

Two weeks for a concussion ? seems kind of quick for a guy that hasn't done well as a WR

Only one week is for the concussion. But he asked for another week to get his Christmas shopping done, and Lovie didn't have a problem with that.
