BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) -Pro Bowl kick returner Devin Hester is absent from Chicago's first training camp practice.
Hester was placed on the Bears' Did Not Report list. The reason for his absence was not immediately known Wednesday.
Hester has 11 kick returns for touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons, which is two short of the league record. He also plays wide receiver.
The Bears had hoped to extend Hester's contract before training camp but had not completed a deal.
