Gould (illness) was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game in St. Louis. Gould missed Wednesday's practice but returned as a full participant Thursday. He'll be fine for Sunday's unfavorable matchup in St. Louis.
Gould (illness) practiced in full Thursday. Gould took a seat Wednesday due to an illness, but his uninhibited return Thursday blazes a trail for active status Sunday at St. Louis. The Rams have forced at least two field goal attempts of opponents in six of eight games, which bodes well for Gould's Week 10 potential.
Gould was absent from Wednesday's practice due to an illness. After hitting all 15 field goal attempts through the Bears' first six games, Gould has gone 2-for-5 in the past two, including misses on both kicks during Monday's win at San Diego. Just two day's later, he's dealing with an illness, which could hinder his activity level as the week continues.
Gould knocked down two of his three field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Vikings. Gould initiated the Bears' scoring with a booming 55-yard field goal, but was wide left from 51 yards late in the third quarter. It was the first missed field goal of the season for Gould, who has been exceptional with a 17-for-18 performance through eight weeks. He's also been remarkably consistent for fantasy owners, scoring at least eight points in all but two of the Bears' seven games.
Gould connected on all four of his field-goal and both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's loss to the Lions. None of Gould's kicks came from more than 40 yards, but his weekly reliability continues to buoy a pedestrian Bears offense that has struggled to finish off drives. He's a perfect 15-for-15 from the field this season, with his lone missed kick coming on a blocked extra-point attempt.
