When it was just a day or two, it was no biggie. When it became three days, and then turned into 'personal reasons' it was still understandable. But then Brian Urlacher kept missing practice, and the preseason opener, and more practice. But we figured if it was that bad, the Bears would bring in some more linebacker depth. And then they did that too. Now today news broke about him having his knee scoped, so is it OK to press the concerned button yet?

He did say he'll be ready for the season opener against the Colts, but he also said the knee could bother him all year long. His surgery was minor, and many players get routine knee maintenance later in their careers. But is it time to be concerned yet?
