    Johnny Knox was home for Christmas.

    A source told NBC 5's Peggy Kusinski that the speedy Chicago Bears wide receiver was released from the hospital on Christmas Eve.

    Knox suffered a violent hit during the game against the Seattle Seahawks, fracturing a facet joint, which supports the spinal column.
