UPDATED 2:45 P.M.:
Six-time Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Urlacher was not selected for the league’s all-star game this season, a source told the Sun-Times. Urlacher had been selected to the Pro Bowl each year inn his career with the exception of 2004 when he missed seven games because of injury.
Four Bears were selected to the game, with rosters to be announced by the league at the top of the hour. Outside linebacker Lance Briggs was chosen to his third Pro Bowl, as was defensive tackle Tommie Harris. Kick returner Devin Hester and special teamer Brendon Ayanbadejo were picked to their second Pro Bowls.
