Robbie Gould K CHI 2 Months
Bears signed K Robbie Gould to a four-year extension through 2017.
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 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 active for Week 15 as promised, fantasy owners should move on to a kicker that's 100 percent.

Bears K Robbie Gould is questionable to return after suffering a calf strain in pregame warmumps.
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. Gould may not kick again the rest of the day.
