Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has left the team to deal with a private matter that involves his mother Lavoyda Urlacher.

According to league source, the team is expected to give Urlacher as much time as he needs.

As of now, Urlacher's status for Sunday's game in New Orleans against the Saints on Sunday is uncertain.

"Our thoughts and prayers going out to Brian and his family" read a tweet from Bears quarterback Jay Cutler."

Urlacher's absence could cause some problems for the Bears as he was a huge part of the dominating Chicago defense that shut down the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday. The Bears linebacker racked up six tackles, one fumble recovery, and one interception.

Drew Brees and the Saints would feel a little bit of relief not looking at the center of the field on Sunday and seeing number 54 lurking around. Only time will tell though.

Urlacher attends to family emergency

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

Smith 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.

While this would help us in the game if he could not play I would hate for it to be for such reason. Hope his mother is ok!

You kids get off my lawn!

Honestly I'm sad to hear this. I'm sure the situation is bad. My prayers are with him.

If he's out for Sunday, this could have a huge impact on the game.

Prayers for he and his family. Personally I would rather beat the Bears with him than without him.

Hopefully she will be alright but regardless we need to prepare as if he is playing. The last time we didn't prepare for a player to play, he played and we went from 13-0 to 13-1.

He plays for the other team so we hate him, but its players like Brian who make the NFL what it is.

My prayers are with him too.
