Veteran linebacker Brian Urlacher did not take part in the Chicago Bears' organized team activities on Wednesday. Not all OTAs are open to the media, so it's not known if this is the first one Urlacher has missed.

Nick Roach, Joey LaRocque, Matt Forte, Danieal Manning, Josh Bullocks and Glenn Earl also sat out with "minor ailments," according to chicagobears.com.

Charles Tillman, meanwhile, participated today after missing all of the previous OTAs.
