“I do not think that’s going to happen,” Urlacher told FOX 32 News in Chicago. “But, if it does, I have had a really good and long career so I would be sad...

The Chicago Bears' defense is finding it difficult to close out games and showing signs of some real wear and tear.
Playing without injured linebacker Brian Urlacher and with several other lineup changes, the Bears will have to find a way to turn it around Sunday against a Minnesota Vikings offense that can run opponents into the ground behind Adrian Peterson. A win would also...
Chicago Bears MLB Brian Urlacher was slapped with a $21,000 fine, his second in consecutive weeks by the NFL for a horse-collar tackle during the Bears 23-17 overtime loss to Seattle. The fine was levied after Urlacher tackled Seahawks running back Leon Washington. Last week, the league fined Urlacher $15,750 for a tackle on Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson. Urlacher plans to appeal...
He's the latest in the long tradition of Chicago Bears middle linebackers. It started with Dick Butkus in the 60's and 70's. Mike Singletary continued it in the 80's and early 90's. And since the beginning of the new milennium, it's been Brian Urlacher. But with an injury to his hamstring, he could [...]
Kelvin Hayden will get the start at cornerback in place for injured Tim Jennings when the Chicago Bears travel to Minnesota Sunday to face the Vikings.

In the Thanksgiving weekend matchup between the two teams Chicago walked out of Soldier Field with a 28-10 victory. However, this will be a much different Bears team that faced the Vikings two weeks ago...
With the Chicago Bears missing their defensive leader, visiting Adrian Peterson and the desperate Minnesota Vikings might not provide an ideal opportunity to bounce back from a frustrating loss.
Then again, it's been three years since the banged-up Bears last lost to their NFC North rival, and Minnesota is the only team they've beaten in the past month heading into Sunday...
