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.

On behalf of ALL Eagles fans everywhere, I want to offer my condolenses to the Urlacher family.  I would assume he'll never read this comment, but his family will be in my family's prayers today and throughout the week.  Urlacher is a great athlete and seems like a man of character, I hope that he finds peace in this difficult time.

What do you expect from a trashy Eagles fan.  There is a reason Philadelphia is consitently voted as the rudest fans in the country specifically Eagles fans.  Any fans that would throw a party for Michael Vick and give him a standing ovation during his first preseason game is just pure trash!!

@ Zep Becker- What kind of human being are you that you find it amusing to crack jokes about another human being passing.  You have zero class and no one is impressed with your immature remarks.  Why don't you crawl back in to whatever hole you crawled out of.  For you to say something like that in someone's time of pain is just ignorant.  Think about as if it was one of your relatives and how would you feel if someone said something idiotic like that.  Get a filter in that little brain of yours!  Always think before you speak moron!
