(WSCR) The dreaded injury bug has definitely had its way with the Chicago Bears this season.

Six Bears players have been placed on the injured reserve list, countless other starters have missed time due to injury.

Middle linebacker Brian Urlacher suffered a hamstring injury, rendering his return this season questionable.

Still, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley said yesterday the Bears may, in fact, be better with out Urlacher anchoring the defense.

“Urlacher is at the end of his career right now; he’s playing a little slow out there,” Finley said, according to FoxSportsWisconsin.com. “I don’t think they’re losing too much if he’s out. Putting another guy (Nick Roach) in might help them a little.”
