Brain Urlacher has often said he believes the Bears have the deepest linebacking corps in the league. That depth was tested Sunday when Nick Roach injured his hip in the first quarter. Roach was the replacement for Pisa Tinoisamoa, who was inactive with a knee injury. Rod Wilson replaced Roach at strong-side or "Sam" linebacker but did not register a tackle.
"He hadn't played a lot of 'Sam' in his career but he did a good job today," Urlacher said. "We're going to need our [other linebackers], obviously."
