Injuries: Urlacher reportedly done for the year

Sad day for Bears fans as linebacker Brian Urlacher is reportedly out for the season. Urlacher dislocated his wrist last night in the Bears loss against the Packers.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Urlacher said in a text message that he was done for the season. He did reportedly have surgery this morning. There is some speculation in the Tribune post that there might have been more damage than initially realized.

The linebacking corp will have to step it up in the absence of Urlacher. Hunter Hillenmeyer is number two on the depth chart at middle linebacker. Hillenmeyer had two tackles in the game last night.

We'll see what happens next. Maybe they'll go for Derrick Brooks...
