Bears vs. Cardinals injury report: Urlacher reamins sidelined against Arizona

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

After suffering a hamstring injury in Week 13, the linebacker's season may be over

Future Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher has a slim chance of returning this season for the Bears, but he certainly won't be around for Week 16 against the Cardinals. The linebacker will be held out of Sunday's game against Arizona after injuring his hamstring back in Week 13.

Adding to the Bears problems at linebacker is a knee injury to Geno Hayes that kept him out of Week 15's game against the Packers. He practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday and should be evaluated as the week goes on. Another injury on the defensive side is cornerback Tim Jennings, who left Week 13's game against Seattle with a shoulder injury. Like Hayes, Jennings participated in practice in a limited capacity.

After leaving the same Seattle game that injured Urlacher and Jennings with a concussion, wide receiver Earl Bennett practiced for the first time on Wednesday. While there will be no final word until at least Friday, this is a good sign for Bennett.

Offensive lineman Jonathan Scott was a scratch from practice with a hamstring injury. Scott had been playing through an injured shoulder.
