LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher returned to practice for the first time since July 31, hoping to play in Sunday’s season opener.
Urlacher did not stop to talk to reporters, but coach Lovie Smith said the eight-time Pro Bowl player looked good considering he had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Aug. 14.
Urlacher did talk to Fox TV before about his condition and said, “I’m playing Sunday. That’s a done deal.”
