With the Bears unable to venture into scoring range after the first quarter, Santos' injury didn't have much impact on Sunday's game. He dealt with a groin injury earlier this season, prompting the Chiefs to place him on injured reserve and eventually release him. The Bears could turn back to Connor Barth, who was released to make room for Santos a few weeks ago.
Santos sustained a groin injury in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Bears head coach John Fox indicated post-game that Santos "tweaked his groin," but the injury was never officially announced during the game even though punter Pat O'Donnell began practicing field goals at halftime and handled kickoffs during the contest. The severity of the injury is unclear at this point, so he'll likely be reevaluated Monday as the Bears look to determine whether or not Santos will be available for the Week 14 game in Cincinnati. It's somewhat troubling that Santos is dealing with a groin issue again, given that the injury was why the Chiefs placed him on injured reserve in September before ultimately waiving him.
Santos made one of his two field-goal attempts and did not take an extra point in Sunday's 31-3 loss to the Eagles.
Santos started his Bears career by missing a 54-yarder, but later rallied to convert a 38-yard attempt. Although Chicago's offense probably won't afford him as many scoring opportunities as Kansas City's used to, Sunday's matchup against the 49ers at least appears promising.
Santos met with the Bears on Thursday but initially wasn't signed. The team opted to change course at kicker, however, after Connor Barth missed a 46-yard field goal attempt in the waning seconds of Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions. While Santos has a strong track record, he's unlikely to produce points at a prolific rate due to his reliance on a lackluster Chicago offense. He was an above-average kicker for Kansas City the past three seasons before being replaced by Harrison Butker after suffering a groin injury earlier in the campaign.
