According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher says he plans on playing in this week’s season opener against the Colts.
Urlacher told Fox-32’s The Final Word, that his knee “just isn’t the same anymore. It’s never going to be the same,” per Biggs.
I will be very surprised if the 34 year-old Urlacher is able to make it through this entire season with having any problems with his knee.
With Urlacher’s contract running out at the end of this season, I wouldn’t expect the Bears to re-sign him.
