LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears' defense will likely have a similar look next season whether Brian Urlacher is part of it or not.

New coach Marc Trestman and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker say the Bears will stick with a 4-3 set and won't change much schematically with a defense that ranked among the league's best under Lovie Smith.

The big question is whether Urlacher will be a part of it.

The eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker has an expiring contract and missed the last four games with a hamstring injury after being slowed by a knee problem.

Trestman says it would be ``premature'' to discuss Urlacher's future. He says they spoke on the phone for about 30 to 40 minutes about the team, not specifically his situation.
