Chicago Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher traveled to Europe in the offseason to try an alternative knee therapy, reports the Chicago Tribune's Mike Mulligan.

Urlacher may have visited German Dr. Peter Wehling for a method known as Regenokine therapy, Mulligan reports. It is the therapy reportedly used by Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez, among others. The therapy is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Urlacher had his knee scoped earlier this month, but he and the team hope that he will still be ready for the regular season opener. He also reportedly had a previous knee surgery in January.

The 34-year-old linebacker sprained the MCL and PCL in his left knee during the final game of last season.
