Bears Linebacker Urlacher Out for Season
UPDATED 11:46 a-m 9/14/9 LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated right wrist, a major blow for a team with high expectations.

Team spokesman Jim Christman confirmed a Chicago Tribune report, saying "Brian did have surgery this morning and he is out for the remainder of the season." Urlacher had said in a text message to the newspaper that his "season is over."

Urlacher apparently was injured in the first quarter of Sunday night's 21-15 loss at Green Bay making a tackle on Packers running back Ryan Grant. He left on the Packers' first drive of the second half.
