Report: Bears' Urlacher to miss games

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 28, 2012
With Brian Urlacher nursing a hamstring injury, the Chicago Bears have signed Dom DeCicco to a two-year contract, adding depth at linebacker. The team announced the move Tuesday. Urlacher's status for this week's game at Minnesota and beyond is in question after he was injured on the final drive of Sunday's overtime loss to Seattle. Coach Lovie Smith indicated Monday that he has a pulled hamstring. The Chicago Tribune, citing sources, reported Tuesday that he is expected to miss three games and possibly the rest of the regular season. The team declined comment. Nick Roach would likely move to middle linebacker with Geno Hayes taking his spot at strong side linebacker without Urlacher. DeCicco appeared in all 16 games for the Bears last season. Chicago also waived/injured linebacker Patrick Trahan.
