According to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher could miss the rest of the regular season with a hamstring injury.
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 Dec. 30 regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions is a possibility.
This is a big blow to the Bears’ defense. Urlacher has been playing well this season after overcoming a knee problem all offseason and throughout the preseason.
