LAKE FOREST, ILL. (AP) - Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher will miss Saturday’s preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals as he nurses a left calf muscle strain.

Coach Lovie Smith said Urlacher has improved, but the team is taking no chances. Urlacher was hurt in last Saturday’s game against Oakland.

Urlacher has missed every practice this week. Wide receiver Earl Bennett (hamstring), safety Major Wright (finger), safety Craig Steltz (ankle) and quarterback Caleb Hanie (shoulder) have also missed every practice and are unlikely to play.
