Brian Urlacher returns to Halas Hall Thursday

Brian Urlacher's mother suddenly passed on Wednesday afternoon. You could understand if he didn't want to return to work right away.

But according to multiple reports, the Bears star linebacker is already back at Halas Hall, presumably to practice on Thursday.

Urlacher's presence is, frankly, stunning, because of the tragic circumstances surrounding his life in the last 24 hours. It's also no guarantee that Urlacher will end up playing on Sunday against the Saints -- memorial services for his mother have yet to be planned.

And perhaps it's simply a situation that many athletes face, where going back to work and immersing yourself in your job makes things easier to tune out.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Urlacher family during this difficult time.

Brian Urlacher is the most over-rated player in the NFL right now. 
Defensive player of the week is over-rated?

 
It won't make a difference if he plays or not
Probably right, Saints won't have an answer either way.

And if you're a Bears fan heading to the Dome for this game, bring a rain coat.
Yeah, we're all expecting a lot of Saints tears!!

Good chance they don't scheduele any memorial services untill after sunday. I understand that memorial service is much more important but they are not going to make a scheduele conflict for Brian. 

My thoughts and prayers are with the Urlacher Familly.

I think most of this discussion is sick. People grieve in different ways so to belittle the guy for his choice to return to football is simply immature. I am glad we have so many experts on how to grieve through losing a parent, give me a break!
