Brian Urlacher Says He Will Be Ready for Week One

Brian Urlacher shrugged off his lack of participation this offseason while recovering from a knee injury, and the Bears linebacker says he is confident he’ll be ready for the start of training camp according to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune.

Asked Tuesday if he would participate in the first day of camp July 26 in Bourbonnais, Urlacher answered, “for sure.”

He sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and partially sprained the posterior cruciate ligament in the same knee during the Bears’ season-ending 17-13 victory at Minnesota on Jan. 1.

Urlacher was sidelined for voluntary offseason workouts and held out of the team’s mandatory minicamp, June 12-14. His offseason rehab consisted of extensive work in the weight room and sprints at Halas Hall.

“I could have participated in minicamp, but there was no reason to,” Urlacher said. “It was three days of stuff that I’m going to be doing at training camp, so there was no real reason to push it.”
