Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher was dominating in his Week 1 performance against the Falcons. He recorded an interception and returned a fumble for a touchdown as Chicago rolled Atlanta, 30-12.

On Wednesday, Urlacher was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week, but the linebacker won't be with the team for several days and may not be available when the Bears face the Saints Sunday.

According to a statement from the team, Urlacher's mother passed away unexpectedly.

"My first priority right now is to be with my family as we mourn her loss and make the arrangements to lay her to rest," Urlacher said. "This is a very difficult and emotional time for us and I sincerely ask that you respect our privacy. Thank you."

Thoughts and prayers go out to Urlacher and his family.

Brian Urlacher's mother dies unexpectedly

Some of the comments on here reconfirm how cold and uncaring the world is becoming.  Call me naive and unaware, but I honestly feel that the comments that are made on here are read by those they are meant for, that they do care and appreciate (or unappreciate) what is said by others.


Wishing the Urlacher family peace, comfort, and strength at such a difficult time.

The loss of one's mother, especially when it is unexpected, is one of the most painful things a man will ever experience.  God Speed Brian Urlacher.

Steelwood how can you even say this. That means don't ever offer condolances to military families you don't know when they lose someone. Lost my mom unexpectingly and took condolences and good wishes from everyone. Hope you don't experience a sudden loss of your mom
