Bears LB Brian Urlacher reportedly left Chicago on Tuesday to deal with a family emergency in Arizona. The Chicago Tribune reported the matter involves Urlacher's mother, Lavoyda.

Urlacher's status for the next several days — including his availability for Sunday's game against the Saints — is uncertain.

Urlacher had an enormous impact in the Bears' Week One win over the Falcons, leading the team with 10 tackles, scoring a touchdown on a fumble recovery and intercepting a Matt Ryan pass.
