Urlacher has been Chicago's stalwart at middle linebacker since 2000, but suffered a season-ending wrist injury against the Packers. Hillenmeyer is not a bad option given the circumstances: he was a starter at strong-side linebacker for the Bears from 2004 to '08 and played well on some great defenses, even if overshadowed by Urlacher and Lance Briggs.
