Lou Canellis' Bears Bourbonnais Diary - August 14

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

What a day. I heard Mully and Hanley ran my interview with Brian Urlacher during their morning show and then proceeded to talk about it. I'm a big fan of Mully who I've known for 30 years going all the way back to our Loyola University days. I've always respected Brian's work and think the pair have "nailed it" on Chicago sports talk. Anyway, when they run your interview, that's a good thing because they have one of the biggest audiences of any show on radio.

At about 10 a.m., the Tribune's Brad Biggs broke the story that Brian Urlacher had arthroscopic knee surgery and then things got crazy. We at FOX had no idea Brian was going to have surgery Tuesday morning. He denied his knee was scoped during our interview and didn't respond to a text I sent him Monday night. Obviously, getting the Bears to react to Urlacher's surgery news was most important. First Lance Briggs, then Nick Roach, Lovie, Bob Babich and Tim Jennings. Everyone is of the belief, Brian will be back for the opener September 9 against the Colts. So am I. Urlacher couldn't shake the pain and surgery was his last resort. He's 34-years-old and playing in the last year of his contract. No one needs to be out there more than Brian.

I hit the practice field at 2 p.m. for about an hour. When I realized the guys were going to work out in "shells," I took off.

I'll sit down with Brian Thursday night on FOX Chicago News at Nine so make sure you watch following the Bengals - Falcons game.
