The Bears will kick off their 100th season fan convention without one of the best players in franchise history.
Brian Urlacher tweeted this afternoon that he was forced to withdraw from the event because he is sick.
“Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend,” he wrote. “Something I ate must have got the best of me. Sorry I won’t be able to see all you Bears fans!”
He decorated his tweet with some colorful emojis to illustrate how he’s feeling.
Urlacher was scheduled to walk the orange carpet tonight to launch the Bears 100 event and was to be part of a panel with fellow Hall of Fame linebackers Dick Butkus and Mike Singletary on Saturday morning.
