Brian Urlacher missed his fourth consecutive practice Sunday and its looking unlikely that the veteran middle linebacker will play in the preseason opener Thursday against the Denver Broncos at Soldier Field. After Sundays practice under sunny skies at Olivet Nazarene, coach Lovie Smith would not offer a timetable for when Urlacher will return to the field. He was last on the field Tuesday. Urlacher was held out of the entire offseason program after he sprained his left knee in the season finale at Minnesota. His knee is still a little sore, Smith said. He has some soreness with it. Hopefully, well be able to get him back out here before long. But well take our time with Brian. Smith was asked if the team would consider arthroscopic surgery for Urlacher to take a look at the knee. Were on top of his knee, he said. When hes ready to go, hell be back out there. Thats about all well talk about. Source: Chicago Tribune
