Looks like a crises was averted for the Baltimore Ravens — WR Derrick Mason has returned to today’s game against the New England Patriots. Mason was shaken up after a first-quarter touchdown grab, but returned on the team’s next series and isn’t showing any ill-effects.
In Chicago, Bears WR Devin Hester was just shown leaving the sidelines for the locker room. There’s been no official annoucement of an injury by the Bears, although the FOX game broadcast is reporting Hester suffered a shoulder injury and is questionable to return. Hester was hit hard simultaneously by Louis Delmas and William James on a two-yard reception, and went to the sidelines after the play.
The Bears have also lost backup RB Adrian Peterson to a right knee injury early in the game.
