Quote:
Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is expected to miss the next three games and possibly the rest of the regular season with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, according to two sources familiar with his injury status.

Urlacher hopes to be fully recovered for the playoffs, provided the Bears remain in good postseason standing. A return for the regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions (Dec. 30) is a possibility.

The eight-time Pro Bowler strained his right hamstring on the second-to-last play of Sunday’s 23-17 overtime loss to the Seahawks. He heard a "pop" as he chased Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson near the sideline. It was a non-contact injury.

Urlacher declined to discuss the injury or his playing status when reached by the Tribune. He underwent an MRI on Tuesday, which confirmed the Grade 2 strain.


It's a loss...but not as big as it would have been a few years ago...we have to hope Jennings isn't out so we aren't stretched too thin...still think we go at least 3-1 to end the year.

Now we are in real trouble...

Bears CB Tim Jennings had his right arm in a sling on Tuesday.

Jennings needed help getting dressed after last week's game. The Bears could be without two of their key defensive players in Week 14, as Brian Urlacher (hamstring) is also sidelined.

The Urlacher news is whatever for this year he was a huge reason we struggled against the Seahawks.

I don't know how we can possibly re-sign him with all of these things piling up.

The Jennings news is not good.

We can still pull out 3 of the next 4 with Urlacher or Jennings. Hopefully we have them back for the playoffs.

Peterson is on fire. Without Urlacher it could get ugly. I am not ruling this out but he is key in coaching on field.

Peterson won't run on us any more then he has in the past. We can beat them with him going for 200+

Some people are acting like we are losing Urlacher of a couple of years ago.

He is a shadow of what he once was at his best this season.

We will not miss his play we will miss his leadership.

I'd take a 40 year old Urlacher over Nick Roach at MLB. He is SO average there it makes me laugh at the people that hype him. Urlacher's leadership may be the single most contributing factor to the success our Defense has. He is the QB of our defense. However, I think it's become clear this is his last year in professional football.. Sit him the rest of the regular season than whether he's ready or not, throw him into his last several games of his career.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of Roach. Or Hayes for that matter. I wouldn't be opposed (or surprised) to see JT Thomas get some SLB reps.

I love Urlacher and have since I wanted him to be our draft pick, but the Bears' D goes as Melton and the Dline go. I'm afraid that Urlacher has hit the point of no return on his body in that he can't keep it healthy if he does the amount of work to be game ready. I had hoped that his game would pick up as he gained more time from last season's injury, but I think that the injuries are piling up faster than they are healing.

Hammies have their own schedule and I would not be surprised if he does not play if we make the playoffs, although I don't know the difference between a grade two hammie and a grade six toothache.

I don't care how much Brian's game has dropped off, he remains the heart, soul, and brains of the defense. Now we move a player I've never been enamored with, Nick Roach, to the middle and bring in Geno Hayes. This is a case of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

I'd be shocked if these changes have a positive impact on the defense. I hope many of you would be, too.
