Injury To Insult For Bears

They haven't even finished licking their wounds from their embarassing loss to the Green Bay Packers last night (more on that later) when the Bears received even MORE bad news: Brian Urlacher is out for the season with a dislocated wrist. You can argue that Urlacher isn't nearly the player he was a few years ago, but the impact his absence will have on the Bear defense is hard to deny.

A Brian Urlacher injury means that the whole city of Chicago is likely in a state of mourning. A typical Chicago Bears team lives and dies by its defense, and doubly so by it's linebackers, so when there's a Brian Urlacher injury… it means bad news.(Perhaps… bad news bears?) The prolific and stalwart middle linebacker picked up a fractured wrist, that required immediate surgery, and he is most likely to be out for the entire season. Urlacher has been a staple of the Chicago Bears since he was drafted in 2000, arguably one of the best linebackers in the NFL. It would be worth pay day loans at least to get a Brian Urlacher injury healed quickly.
