Pat O’Donnell Practices Field Goal Kicking

Points have been hard to come by the season for the Bears, so the last thing they need is another potential source of them unavailable for Thursday night’s game against the Cowboys. That could be the case, as kicker Robbie Gould didn’t participate in Tuesday’s practice due to a quad injury.

“Robbie was sore this morning,” coach Marc Trestman said. “So we just rested him today. We’ll see where he is like with the other guys who didn’t practice today. We’ll just see where he is tomorrow.”

Trestman wouldn’t elaborate on contingency plans, calling it an “organizational issue” and adding that the team would see where Gould’s at Wednesday. Punter Pat O’Donnell is the backup, and he last kicked field goals in high school. O’Donnell said his range is around 45 yards, and he kicks once a week even when Gould is healthy.

“Pat practiced today,” Trestman said. “So I’ll leave it at that. He practiced today, and again, we’re hopeful. We’ll see where Robbie is tomorrow.”
