MINNEAPOLIS -- Linebacker Brian Urlacher left the field with ice on his left knee after sustaining an injury late in Sunday's Bears-Vikings game.
After the game, Bears coach Lovie Smith said it was an MCL sprain.
Urlacher was attempting to defend a deep pass in the end zone when safety Major Wright collided with him. Urlacher's leg twisted awkwardly following the collision.
The defensive co-captain remained on the ground for a few minutes then walked off the field under his own power.
Urlacher was questionable coming into Sunday's game after suffering a knee injury in last week's loss to the Packers. It's unclear which knee he injured in Green Bay.
