Brian Urlacher Done for Season

September 14, 2009

A devastating blow to the Chicago Bears who may have lost LB Brian Urlacher for the season last night after suffering a dislocated wrist against the rival Green Bay Packers.

From ESPN:

The six-time Pro Bowler had told the Chicago Tribune in a brief text message early Monday that his season was over.

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 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.

From USA Today:

Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune that his “season is over” in a text message.

Bears coach Lovie Smith will meet reporters later in the day.

Urlacher, a 10-year veteran, was expected to have surgery on Monday. He left Sunday’s game after injuring his wrist on a tackle in the second quarter.
