Update: Brian Urlacher's mother has passed away.

Brian Urlacher has left town due to a family emergency that is believed to involve his mother, Lavoyda, and will likely be away from the Bears for several days according to the Chicago Tribune:

Brian Urlacher rushed out of town Tuesday to attend to a family emergency in Arizona involving his mother, the Tribune has learned.

Urlacher is expected to be away from the Bears for several days and his status for Sunday’s game against the Saints is unclear. Teammates, the coaching staff and members of the front office are aware of Urlacher’s situation but no further information was available Tuesday night.
Horrible to hear, and obviously football should be the last thing on Brian's mind right now. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Urlacher family.
