Bears' Hester exits game vs. Rams with calf injury

CHICAGO -- Bears wide receiver and kick returner Devin Hester left Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams in the third quarter with a calf injury and will not return.

Hester was hurt on an end-around play when he took a handoff and was tackled for a 4-yard loss. He limped off the field, received some treatment on the sideline and then gingerly walked into the tunnel to the dressing room. Earlier in the game, Hester had a 48-yard reception from Jay Cutler.

Rams safety Oshiomogho Atogwe had to leave the game with a shoulder injury.
