Pregame injury for Robbie Gould
By Kevin Seifert
MINNEAPOLIS -- Here's an early injury report from the Metrodome: Chicago Bears place-kicker Robbie Gould suffered a calf injury during pregame warm-ups.
As a result, punter Adam Podlesh took the opening kickoff. His kick hit at the Vikings' 2-yard line and bounced into the end zone for a touchback.
Gould was able to convert most of his warm-up kicks after the injury but clearly wasn't 100 percent. It's assumed he'll at least be available to take short-range attempts, but we'll keep you updated.
