Urlacher shaken up, but returns


CHICAGO -- Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher left the first quarter of Sunday's NFC divisional playoff against the Seattle Seahawks at Soldier Field with what appeared to be a hip injury.

Urlacher appeared to be shaken up near the end of the first quarter, and went into the locker room for a brief period, before returning.

Upon return, the linebacker didn't appear to be slowed by any residual effects from the injury. So it appears this healthy Bears team averted another injury, which bodes well for the team's chances in this game -- in which it currently leads 14-0 -- and possibly (likely) the NFC championship.
