Lovie Smith was on Bears Gameday Live, a pregame show on Fox, and he confirmed that Devin Hester will be out for this game against the Buccaneers and Adrian Peterson will suit up in his place.
At receiver, Marty Booker, Brandon Lloyd, Rashied Davis, and Mark Bradley will all suit up.
As expected, Danieal Manning will handle the kickoff return duties. Nathan Vasher will handle the punt return duties because he catches the ball well and is smart with it.
