He suffered a dislocated wrist in a game yesterday against the Green Bay Packers. From the Chicago Tribune-
Brian Urlacher appears to be out for the season after dislocating his right wrist, the linebacker said Monday. The team has not given the official word, but Lovie Smith is expected to address the issue during his afternoon press conference.
Urlacher injured his wrist in the first quarter of Sunday’s 21-15 loss to the Packers. He was ruled out after halftime.
When asked about his status Monday, Urlacher said in a text message that his “season is over.”
He was scheduled to undergo surgery Monday morning upon the team’s arrival back in Chicago from Green Bay. A dislocated bone had to be surgerically put back in. The surgery might have revealed more extensive damage.
If I had to make a guess, its that there is nerve damage to Urlacher’s wrist and not just a dislocation. The Bears chances of winning of the NFC North have been significantly decreased by this injury. Urlacher is a six-time Pro Bowler.
