Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester left in the first half of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with a concussion.

The Bears announced that Hester will not return to the game.

Hester was taken to the locker room for testing after showing signs of a concussion. The team later confirmed Hester has a concussion. He was replaced by Eric Weems in the second quarter. Weems also assumed Hester's kickoff and punt return duties.

The Bears sustained other injuries in the game. Running back Matt Forte was replaced by Michael Bush after he limped off the field in the third quarter following a tackle in which he was bent backwards.

Also, right guard Lance Louis left in the third quarter with a knee injury. He was replaced by Gabe Carimi.
