With the Week One game against the Packers on the line and linebacker Brian Urlacher on the sidelines with an injury, we wondered what Bobby Wade might have said that Jay Cutler might have said about the leader of the Chicago defense.
If Cutler had said anything, Urlacher would have been justified to punch the quarterback in the mouth.
With his left hand.
Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune reports that Urlacher will undergo surgery to repair a dislocated right wrist.
The injury occurred in the first quarter of the 21-15 loss at Lambeau Field. X-rays confirmed the problem at halftime.
The extent of Urlacher’s absence isn’t known. The Bears are hopeful that he won’t be out for long.
Based on last night’s performance by Cutler, the Bears also might be hoping that Urlacher’s surgically-repaired list will permit him to play quarterback, too.
