Bears LB Urlacher returns to team

LAKE FOREST (AP) – Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has returned to practice.

Urlacher was back on the field Thursday, a day after missing practice following the sudden death of his mother, Lavoyda, at her home in Texas.

Urlacher is expected to play Sunday at New Orleans (0-1) in the first road game of the season for the Bears (1-0).

Urlacher had 10 tackles, an interception and a fumble return for a touchdown in Chicago's opening win over Atlanta. The 33-year-old Urlacher is in his 12th season with the Bears.
