Urlacher has knee surgery


– Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and still hopes to be ready for the season opener.

The Bears said that Urlacher had an arthroscopic debridement procedure on Tuesday morning to help relieve swelling in the knee and was back at training camp by 10 a.m. He missed the offseason training program after spraining the medial collateral ligament and partially spraining the posterior cruciate ligament in the final game last year against Minnesota.

911 call released

A neighbor calmly talked to a 911 dispatcher while reality TV star Evelyn Lozada sat bleeding from the head following a domestic altercation with her husband, former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson.

In the tape released by Davie, Fla., police, the neighbor says the Saturday altercation involves a “high-profile person.”

He repeatedly urges police not to make a big scene.

During the call, the neighbor tells Lozada to wipe the blood from an open wound on her head. Lozada can be heard in the background saying Johnson head-butted her.

Johnson was arrested and bonded out Sunday morning. He was cut from the Dolphins later that day. Lozada filed for divorce Tuesday.
