It’s getting cold outside and it’s been a long time since the Bears played a game, but Brian Urlacher should be just fine come Monday night against the Detroit Lions.
“It’s the same either way,” said linebacker Brian Urlacher, who continues to work his way back after spraining the medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee in the regular-season finale last year.
“I still practiced last week. The few days off were good and bad because you come back and you get tired on Monday when you practice because you had three or four days off. But it doesn’t affect my knee either way. The rest is always good for everybody. No more me than anybody else. “
The Bears-Lions game will start at 7:30 tonight. Chicago currently is in first place in the NFC North Division.
