Adam Podlesh CHI Aug 21 '12
The Bears are "very concerned" about the left hip injury P Adam Podlesh suffered in Saturday's preseason game.
The injury is to Podlesh's plant leg, but has him iffy for Week 1. Podlesh's net punting average of 40.4 yards was sixth in the NFL in 2011. The Bears will go with undrafted free agent Ryan Quigley or a veteran free agent if Podlesh isn't ready for the regular season.

Jaguars GM Gene Smith confirmed that re-signing free agent P Adam Podlesh is a "high priority" this week.
The Jags can negotiate with Podlesh all week and lock him up long term as soon as Friday night. They should expect competition, however. Podlesh is one of the more athletic punters in football and set a franchise record with a 39.2 net average last season. There are lots of teams with uncertainty at punter.
