Brian Urlacher "on pace" to return for training camp

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Brian Urlacher was among a handful of players who worked out on the side during Tuesday's minicamp. The veteran linebacker is recovering from a knee injury in the season finale against the Vikings.

"He's not ready to go yet," coach Lovie Smith said. "He's on pace. Our plan was to take it slow with him. We know what Brian can do; it's not like he's going to tell us an awful lot out here. He's right on pace [and] he should be able to get a good rest of his offseason in and be good to go for training camp."

Rookie receiver Alshon Jeffery did not participate Tuesday because of what Smith called a "lower leg injury."

"Hopefully he'll be able to do something before this minicamp is over," Smith said.
