The Bears linebacker split up with actress Jenny McCarthy, who he had been dating since April. This comes in the wake of Urlacher's arthroscopic knee surgery, which currently has him sidelined, although he expects to be ready for Chicago's season opener on Sept. 9.
Urlacher's romantic relationship with McCarthy might not be so quick to heal, but don't worry. The two are apparently remaining friends, which is somewhat of a rarity when it comes to high profile breakups.
"Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship. I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for him," McCarthy said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.
McCarthy, of course, dated actor Jim Carrey in the past, and is believed to have a crush on Tim Tebow. In fact, Rosie O'Donnell reportedly tried to set up Tebow and McCarthy during Super Bowl week.
It's been six months since Rosie's failed setup, but hey, why not? Then again, Tebow has his fair share of admirers, so get in line, Jenny.
