although it does suck for them to have urlacher injured i think lovie smith was planning on using the backups more anyways during the preseason. it may take a while for urlacher to heal but he's also got about six weeks.
The Bears have a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, and a new defensive coordinator, all of which are brand new to their respective jobs. Lovie Smith (head coach) was the defensive coordinator and assistant head coach in St. Louis. Terry Shea (Offensive Coordinator) was the QB coach at Kansas City. Ron Rivera (defensive coordinator) was the Linebackers coach in Philadelphia (as well as a player on the '85 Bears team). They all have so much to prove this year, that it has to be killing them to not have their star linebacker in practice to learn the new schemes.
