Brian Urlacher Injury: Urlacher Went To Europe For Knee Treatment

According to Mike Mulligan of the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher sought alternative treatment on his knee in Europe in late-May or early-June. Mulligan's sources are not entirely clear if Urlacher saw Dr. Peter Wehling, the German doctor who famously treated Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez using the "Regenokine therapy" that he pioneered. That is, though, the implication of Mulligan's report.

Neither Urlacher nor the Bears had a comment on the report, which adds a bit of color to Urlacher's tumultuous rehab of his left knee. Urlacher has participated in training camp for only six days so far this offseason, and still maintains that he will be on the field when the Bears take on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 of the 2012 season.
