Well in the fine tradition of “where the hell did that come from”, Brian Urlacher apparently had surgery on his neck recently.
Now we all know that Urlacher went through the season with chronic back issues. It caused a lot of debate about whether or not Brian would be worth resigning either at the end of his current deal or tearing up his current one to make it closer to his market value. Now Urlacher is having “routine” surgery done on one of the most sensitive and crucial part of the body. Seriously, outside of drilling a hole into his head does anything scare you as much as neck surgery?
The Bears are trying to pass this whole thing off as routine. Just a minor problem that was found during a post-season physical and kept under wraps until after he went under the knife. They seem to think people will just move on because he won’t miss training camp. I think it’s arrogant of them to act like it’s not a big deal an apparently do as much as they could to keep it from the public. I was really hoping this off-season might have a little less drama than last year… so far the Bears are not off to a good start.
