Bears coach Lovie Smith confirmed that Brian Urlacher, who did not practice for a fourth straight day will not play against the Cardinals during Saturday night's exhibition at Soldier Field.
Urlacher did run on an adjacent field under the watchful eyes of the training staff and appears to be improving, however.
In other injury news, rookie safety Major Wright is now able to participate in everything except contact drills while recovering from surgery to repair his fractured finger.
Quarterback Caleb Hanie (shoulder), safety Craig Steltz (ankle), linebacker Nick Roach (knee) and receiver Earl Bennett (hamstring) did not practice, although Bennett did run some pass patterns and is improving. It appeared as if veteran center Olin Kreutz had been given the day off.
