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.
