The Chicago Bears are preparing to take on the Washington Redskins tonight on Monday Night Football and still have question marks regarding one of their best offensive players. Hero and kicker Eddy Pineiro is dealing with an injury and there is some concern about how healthy he'll be to kick tonight. «He just had a minor knee injury that occurred (Friday),» head coach Matt Nagy said. «He was out there (Friday) and he didn't do any kicks. We had him out there doing his thing. And then today, he felt like it was just hurting him a little bit. So we just want to be cautious with it and make sure that we're smart and cautious and take a look at it.»
«(We) just thought that it was something that was minor,» Nagy said. «I think as the time has gone by, and then going out there today, he just felt it a little bit. So we're just going to pull back and see where it's at and be optimistic and try to do everything we can to make sure that we're taking care of it, the pain.»For any extreme situation, punter Pat O'Donnell does have some experience as a placekicker.
