Dec 19 - 2:00 PM

Bears declared K Robbie Gould, S Chris Conte, OL Michael Ola, DE Trevor Scott, DT Brandon Dunn, QB David Fales, and CB Terrance Mitchell inactive for Monday night's Week 15 game against the Saints.

Jay Feely will handle kicking duties for the second straight week with Gould battling a quad injury. DT Jay Ratliff (knee) is active and will start on the inside.
Dec 15 - 7:21 PM

Bears K Robbie Gould (quad) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Gould practiced on a limited basis after sitting out last week. Jay Feely will handle kicking duties if he doesn't return against the Saints.
Dec 13 - 4:14 PM

Bears K Robbie Gould (quad) is inactive for Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Gould is week to week. Jay Feely will handle kicking duties against Big D.
Dec 4 - 6:53 PM

Bears K Robbie Gould (quad) is expected to miss Week 14 against the Cowboys.

The Bears signed K Jay Feely on Wednesday to kick for them Thursday night. Consider Gould week-to-week. Vegas has set the over-under at 51.5 points for Cowboys at Bears. Feely won't be a recommended play in the cold weather.
Dec 3 - 1:14 PM

Bears signed K Robbie Gould to a four-year, $15 million extension through 2017, including $9 million guaranteed.

32-year-old Gould drilled 26-of-29 field goals in 2013, and has converted at least 83 percent of his field goal attempts in every year since his rookie campaign of 2005. He is currently regarded as the second most accurate placekicker in league history, leapfrogging Nate Kaeding in November. Per GM Phil Emery's stats, Gould has made 90 percent of his field goals that have occurred with the Bears trailing on the scoreboard. Gould's long-range fantasy value is also looking up with Marc Trestman in Chicago.

Bears K Robbie Gould (calf) is "on track" to be medically cleared Thursday.

Gould injured his calf in Week 14, then had surgery to repair a ruptured semitendinosus tendon shortly after. He'll "compete" with Austin Signor for the Bears' kicking job. Gould was a top-ten fantasy kicker as recently as 2011.

Bears K Robbie Gould is 13 weeks removed from surgery to repair a ruptured semitendinosus tendon in his left leg.

He says he's healthy now. Gould, unluckily, suffered the calf-area injury in warmups before Chicago's Week 14 game. He wound up 21-of-25 on field goals and 2-of-2 from 50 yards out. The Bears signed Austin Signor to compete with Gould in camp, but the undrafted rookie is unlikely to pose a serious threat.

Bears placed K Robbie Gould (calf) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Gould pulled his calf during warmups for Week 14. His eighth NFL campaign ends with a 21-of-25 mark on field goals, including 2-of-2 from 50-plus yards out. Gould will enter the final year of his contract in 2013 set to earn $2.325 million. The Bears have chosen to now roll with veteran Olindo Mare, who beat out Neil Rackers and Billy Cundiff at a Tuesday workout.

Following Sunday's loss to the Vikings, Bears K Robbie Gould (calf) said he'll be "fine" for next week.

Gould strained the calf on his plant leg during warmups. He was available to kick mid-range field goals without trouble, but his ability to take long kicks was limited. Even if Gould does end up active for Week 15 as promised, fantasy owners should move on to a kicker that's 100 percent.

Bears K Robbie Gould suffered a calf strain in pregame warmups.

News didn't surface until game time. The Bears eschewed a 53-yard field goal attempt that they would have otherwise tried in the first quarter. Outside of that opportunity, the injury didn't play much of a role in the game. Gould converted both extra points and handled a late-game onsides kick.
Sun, Dec 9, 2012 01:57:00 PM

Bears K Robbie Gould said the field conditions at Soldier Field could be a factor in if he re-signs.

Gould's contract is up after next season. He 10-of-13 at Soldier Field this season and appeared especially upset with the ragged, wet field in last Sunday night's loss to the Texans. "Those will be situations that I'm going to take into [consideration]," Gould said. "I don’t know if I want to deal with that as I get older as a kicker."

Robbie Gould's contract is actually for six years and $15.5 million. Rams K Josh Brown remains the league's highest paid kicker by a hair.

Brown's annual average is $2.84 million; Gould's is $2.58 million. Brown got $4 million to sign, whereas Gould gets $4.15 million in '08 and '09 roster bonuses. By triggering $2 million worth of escalators, Gould's yearly average can pass Brown's. But those aren't attainable until 2012 and 2013.
Tue, May 20, 2008 12:13:00 AM

Bears signed K Robbie Gould to a five-year, $15.5 million extension through 2013. The deal includes a $4.25 million signing bonus.

A good way to get Cedric Benson's issues out of the forefront. Gould looked shaky as a rookie in 2005, but has since canned 24 of his 30 tries from 40+ and missed only three kicks total inside that range. While the conditions at Soldier Field and an awful-looking passing game curtail his fantasy upside for this season, Gould is legitimately among the five best kickers in the NFL.
