|Urlacher Discusses Knee Surgery
|BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher sees no reason why he'll have trouble rehabbing his surgically repaired left knee in time for the team's regular-season opener.
Urlacher underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee Tuesday morning. He spoke Thursday for the first time since before the decision was made to have the surgery. He first injured the knee Jan. 1 in the regular-season finale against Minnesota and tried to rehab it without surgery.
The 34-year-old, eight-time Pro Bowl player never had any type of knee surgery until Tuesday.
