|Urlacher, Briggs Head Bears' Pro Bowl List
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher was selected to his eighth Pro Bowl, while teammate Lance Briggs made it for the seventh year in a row.
Running back Matt Forte made his first Pro Bowl on Tuesday, hours after being placed on injured reserve because of a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Veteran cornerback Charles Tillman was also picked for the first time as was special teams contributor Corey Graham.
The five selections were the most for the Bears since they had eight in the 2006 season.
