(WSCR) Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday.

The surgery was said to be brief, and the 34-year-old Urlacher was reportedly back at Bears training camp later Tuesday morning.

The Bears expect Urlacher, who hasn’t practiced since July 31, to be ready for the season-opener.

Urlacher missed most of last week for what he and the team called “personal reasons.”

In an interview with FOX-32 on Monday, Urlacher was asked directly if he had arthroscopic surgery while he was out.

“No,” Urlacher told Fox-32’s Lou Canellis. “I am pretty sure if I got surgery we have to tell the NFL from what I understand, right? I definitely didn’t get knee surgery. I was gone for personal reasons.

“I am just going to keep resting right now. I have never had a scope. I don’t know how that stuff works. This is the first time I have ever done anything to my knee so I am kind of new to this. I don’t know. Honestly, I don’t know how that works.”
