LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears receiver Devin Hester is questionable to return Monday against the Minnesota Vikings after missing two games with a strained left calf.

Hester practiced on a limited basis this week for the first time since he was injured against St. Louis on Dec. 6.

Punter Brad Maynard did not practice Saturday and is also questionable with a left groin injury. Also questionable are defensive end Gaines Adams with an ankle and safety Al Afalava with a knee.

Safety Kevin Payne is doubtful with an ankle injury.
