Brian Urlacher had his second full day of practice for the Bears on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher (knee) had his second full day of practice on Wednesday in hopes of being able to play in week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. Urlacher had been out of practice since July 31st with the injury and is ahead of schedule to return and head coach Lovie Smith could not say if he'd be able to play this week. He totaled 86 solo tackles, 14 assists, 3 interceptions and two fumble recoveries in 2011.

Fantasy Analysis: Urlacher is a solid linebacker option in IDP leagues when healthy but is getting older and is not the tackling machine that he once was. The 14 assisted-tackles were a career low and his 86 solo tackles were the second-lowest of his career for a non-injured season. It could however have an effect how Andrew Luck performs in his NFL debut if he doesn't have to see the Hall of Fame linebacker across the field.
