    He is expected to be gone for several days making his status unclear for Sunday’s game against the Saints in New Orleans.
    The Bears’ front office, coaching staff and team members are aware but have no comment, the paper reports. 
    Urlacher played a dominant role in the Bears 30-12 season-opening win against the Atlanta Falcons at Soldier Field Sunday. Urlacher intercepted Falcons QB Matt Ryan, scored a touchdown on a fumble return and racked up 10 tackles.
