Chicago Bears middle linebacker is looking to return to the field after undergoing surgery on his left knee. He told the Chicago Tribune that his left knee "just isn't the same anymore. It's never going to be the same." Urlacher continued to say, "There [are] going to be some restrictions on what I can do because they don't want to overwork me too early." Needless to say, Urlacher is approaching the twilight of his career.
Urlacher has been a fixture with the team for over a decade since arriving from the University of New Mexico. He's been surprisingly durable for the most part, excluding missing 15 games in 2009. The Bears currently list Urlacher as their only MLB, but Blake Costanzo and Geno Hayes will figure into the mix when he takes plays off. This is a big year for Chicago with many fans expecting the team to make the leap, especially on offense.
