I'm a very sad Bears fan today to discover the news about Brian Urlacher's mom passing away unexpectedly. He's left the team for now to be with his family.Â I understand how it is to Â lose your mom in an unexpected way.Â You will never get over it, but able to deal with it better each day.
â€śMy first priority right now is to be with my family as we mourn her loss and make the arrangements to lay her to rest,â€ť Urlacher said in a statement released by the Bears. â€śThis is a very difficult and emotional time for us and I sincerely ask that you respect our privacy. Thank you.â€ť
Urlacher has been excused from the team to be with his family.
