Devin Hester's role in the upcoming season has been a hot topic of discussion for Bears fans recently, but it appears there won't be questions for much longer.

Hester is currently expected to start opposite of Brandon Marshall at receiver, with rookie Alshon Jeffery in the slot.

After rumors began that newly-acquired wide receiver Eric Weems would decrease Hester's action on the field, special teams coach Dave Toub made sure to announce that won't be the case.

In an interview with Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Toub said, "Hester is still our No. 1 kickoff returner. We can put (Weems and Hester) back there and if they kick away from Devin, they'll kick it to Weems and we'll be in good shape."
