Distractions like playing wide receiver should not be an issue for Devin Hester in Atlanta. He is there to be a returner.
The temptation to subject receiver Harry Douglas to injury risk on punt returns should be over for the Falcons now that Devin Hester is available.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec)

The extent of Hester's day was a 23-yard gain as the slot receiver to the left of the formation on a slant against the Bears' zone. Hester's other reception off a Matt Ryan scramble was nullified by offsetting penalties at the line of scrimmage.

2014 Week 7 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

The Falcons' third receiver gained four on a 3rd and 17 check-down to the flat that the Ravens surrounded easily and limited Hester in the first half. Hester had two more targets in this game and one drew a facemask penalty late in the game that earned Atlanta an even closer look in the red zone. Like his teammates on the depth chart, Hester's production is linked to pass protection and it makes him a boom-bust option.

2014 Week 8 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Harry Douglas returned to the line and Atlanta used the receiver more often in three wide sets. Hester was not a factor in this game.
