LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher expects to start Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, despite reportedly having undergone multiple procedures on his left knee that forced him off the practice field for the entire offseason program and the bulk of training camp.
The middle linebacker returned to the practice field on Monday for the first time in over a month after he re-injured the knee a couple of days into the start of training camp.
"He had a good first day back," Bears head coach Lovie Smith said. "He's got to get in shape, I'm sure he'll tell you that. But we didn't have any trouble with him today so he's right back on schedule."
