Bears should have healthy Robbie Gould vs. Packers

US PRESSWIRE

Robbie Gould continues to rehab his calf injury, but is confident that he will be able to play against the Green Bay Packers.

Robbie Gould expects to be healthy and active when the Chicago Bears take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The Bears' kicker was limited last week against the Minnesota Vikings because of a strained left calf that he suffered shortly before game time. Gould told the media that he has a small amount of rehab to complete, and is optimistic that he will be at full strength for the Packers game, according to CSNChicago.

Gould was able to kick the extra points after Chicago's two touchdowns, but could not come on for longer attempts. In the first quarter, the Bears elected to punt on fourth down from the Minnesota 35-yard line, rather than attempt a 52-yard field goal with the injured Gould or the punter, Adam Podlesh.

Gould is the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFL history, with an 85.6 field goal percentage. He is on his way to another solid season for the the Bears. Last year, Gould nailed a career-long 57-yard field goal.
