Injured middle linebacker Brian Urlacher practiced with the Chicago Bears for the first time in three weeks but was listed as doubtful for Sunday's critical game against Detroit. Urlacher saw limited duty in Friday's practice. He is trying to come back from a hamstring strain on Dec. 2 that forced him to miss the past three games.

Chicago Bears (9-6) at Detroit Lions (4-11)
Chicago is in a must win game here, but that doesn’t mean that this means more to them. The Lions would love nothing more here than to play spoiler and eliminate a division rival. However, unlike the Eagles against the Giants, I don’t really like the Lions here. The Bears have won every game this year in which they’ve been favored...
Inconsistent, hard to watch, and downright woeful for most of the 2012 season, the focus will be squarely on Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears offense as they make a bid for the playoffs in Sunday’s regular season finale in Detroit. First-year offense coordinator Mike Tice has fared no better, and in many cases worse, than predecessor Mike Martz. The [...]
