Some may or may not know that this goes on, but Brian Urlacher has admitted that some players (on the Bears) faked injuries to slow down offenses.

Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, now an analyst for Fox Sports 1, lifted the lid Tuesday off a commonly used practice in college and the NFL.

Urlacher revealed that, during his tenure with the Bears, the team — like other clubs around the league — would fake injuries to slow high-powered offenses.

“We had a guy who was the designated dive guy,” Urlacher said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Urlacher went on to say that a Bears coach would simulate the diving motion a swimmer makes with his arms, and the player designated as the dive guy “would get hurt.”

Urlacher said the team wasn’t coached on how to fake injuries but said the practice was part of the Bears’ game plan.
