Brian Urlacher returned to practice at Halas Hall today, two days after leaving the Bears to mourn the unexpected death of his mother, Lavoyda Lenard, with family members.

Last night, we passed along the information to you that Urlacher plans to play on Sunday against the Saints, and that seems even more likely now that he practiced with the team. However, this is obviously a day-to-day situation, and his plans could very well change.

His teammates believe that he will be play Sunday, though. Bears defensive end Corey Wootton said this today:
"I think he's definitely going to be playing this one for his mom. I think he is going to have one of the best games of his career."

UPDATE: According to Zach Zaidman, private funeral services for Lavoyda Lenard will be held on Saturday. George McCaskey, Ted Phillips, Jerry Angelo, Lovie Smith, Bob Babich, and Lance Briggs will attend it.

Also, Urlacher is expected to practice again tomorrow.
