Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher's season is over after wrist injury - ESPN Chicago
Wow, since when is dislocating a wrist a season-ender?
Yea no kidding - that just seems really unlucky. I've always liked Urlacher - especially when he's getting juked out of his jockstrap by Tom Brady
Well they still got Cutler and 15 games to go.
Not to mention the Cubs are looking great for next year.
He must have torn or damaged some of the ligaments and nerves, maybe even the blood vessels running through the area.
It's too bad. I've always respected his skills as a player. He's a terror on the field, and a pretty decent fellow off of it from what I've read.
When healthy he is one of the greatest LBs in the league if not the best - Thats a darn shame.
He was a shoo-in for the HOF without the injury bug
Heard this earlier in the day, too bad.. but injuries are part of the game.
What is the treatment for a dislocated wrist? Dre Bly and Derrick Gibson | Sports Injury Blog - The Disabled List
Too bad really....hate to see anybody get hurt like that and miss significant time, but really.....not any sympathy for the Bears.....I don't think any team ever took a single player injury hit like the Pats last year with Brady...both in the timing and the significance.
The Bears just have to suck it up and play on....and I'm sure they will. It will hurt their chances though....for sure in tough division with the Packers and Vikings.
May be 'part of the game' but injuries especially to top echelon players are the part I hate. I like to watch the very best out there competing and puting on a show. Ironically, shorty before the injury Collinsworth mentioned that this was a great season for Da Bayuz because for the 1st time in years, Ur was free of injury and ready to go.
Too bad indeed. I love Urlacher, and my brother is pissed (He's a Bears fan). It was nice to see him flatten Rodgers though... That guy can HIT.. just can't manage to track the slowest QB in the league hah
Tough break for Urlacher (pun intended), he is really going to leave a hole in that Bears defense. Gee and Cutler looked so good yesterday. I sure that McDanils is in tears over this (Denver has the Bears 1st rd pick next year).
They did a segment on him before the game, and he indicated he felt pain free and stronger than he had felt in a long time after participating in the complete offseason conditioning program.
All I could think at the time was way to jinx the guy by asking him about his present state of good health.
lol i was thinking the same thing they are going to jinx him lol
He's a warrior and a throwback to the days of Chuck Bednarik. That's sad, even moreso since he was coming off a series of injuries the last year or so. I hope he recovers fully and comes back next year. Respect.
Urlacher is made of glass!
Figured I'd say it before somebody else did.
