Chicago Bears Linebacker Brian Urlacher Says He Will Be Unable to Play in the 2009 Season Due to a Wrist Injury
ESPN.com News -- Brian Urlacher's season appears in jeopardy after the Chicago Bears' six-time Pro Bowl linebacker told the Chicago Tribune his "season is over" in a text message.
Urlacher left Sunday's 21-15 loss to the Green Bay Packers with a wrist injury in the third quarter.
Bears coach Lovie Smith said Urlacher dislocated his wrist, and no timetable had been set for his return.
Citing unnamed sources, the Chicago Tribune reported on Sunday night that Urlacher will have surgery when the team returns to Chicago. The newspaper reported that Urlacher had an X-ray at halftime, but an MRI was not needed.
