Pineiro (knee) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Pineiro attempted kickoffs in Wednesday's practice for the first time in three weeks, per Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune, and he appears to now be past his right knee issue. Barring any setbacks, he'll handle kicking duties Sunday versus the Saints.
Pineiro booted three extra points in the Bears' 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.
After having attempted multiple field goals in each of the previous three games, Pineiro didn't line up for a single three-pointer in this contest. Aside from this performance, he's been an average fantasy option, as he's tied to an offense that hasn't exactly been explosive this year.
Pineiro was perfect on three field-goal attempts in Chicago's 16-6 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.
Pineiro appears fully recovered from a minor knee injury he suffered last week. He's attempted eight field goals over his last three games, making him a player who can be started in weekly fantasy lineups.
Pineiro (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Vikings.
The Bears have called Pineiro's injury a pinched nerve in his right knee, which contained him to just one limited practice during Week 4 prep. No matter, he'll play through it for a second straight game versus a Minnesota team that has seen just one field-goal attempt from its opponents in 2019.
Pineiro (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Pineiro played through the same injury last week, converting one of two field-goal attempts and each of his four extra-point tries in Monday's win over Washington. The Bears hadn't signed another kicker as of Friday afternoon, with Pinerio returning to a limited practice to close out the week, per Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times.
Pineiro (knee) did not practice Thursday.
Pineiro has logged two straight absences from practice to begin the week. He's managing a pinched nerve in his right knee and facing a quick turnaround after Monday's win over Washington, during which the 24-year-old appeared to be in visible pain. Pineiro will likely need to practice in some capacity Friday in order to suit up for Sunday's divisional tilt against Minnesota.
Pineiro (knee) did not participate at practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Pineiro is battling a pinched nerve in his right knee, so it's not a major surprise to see him as a non-participant Wednesday given the quick turnaround from Monday's win over the Redskins. The 24-year-old appeared to be in significant pain during the contest, which clouds his availability going forward.
Pineiro is dealing with a pinched nerve in his right knee, Jason Lieser of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Pineiro went 1-for-2 on field-goal attempts and made all four of his extra-point tries in Monday's win over the Redskins, but it was clear that the second-year kicker was playing through some major pain after he suffered the injury last week. The hero of the Week 2 win over the Broncos, Pineiro vows to overcome the injury, but that may not happen without some time off. Look for more updates on his status to come when the Bears resume practice later this week.
Pineiro (knee) is listed as active Monday in Washington.
Pineiro was a late addition to the Bears' Week 3 injury report, showing up on Saturday's version as a limited participant due to a knee injury. Per Adam Jahns of The Athletic, Pineiro was spotted warming up with the training staff prior to Monday's game, which went well enough for him to be cleared for action. Pineiro will look to build upon his perfect start to the campaign.
Pineiro (knee) is expected to make the trip to Washington for Monday's game, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The Bears must disclose of players who don't make the road trip and they didn't file any such notification, signaling Pineiro will be with the team. The kicker popped up on the injury report Saturday, after he suffered an apparent minor knee injury in the weight room. The Bears haven't signed another kicker as of now, but Pineiro could be looking like a game-time call before inactives come out an hour and a half before the game.
Pineiro (right knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against Washington after being listed as limited on Saturday's practice report.
On the plus side, Adam Jahns of The Athletic relays that coach Matt Nagy believes his kicker should be okay after suffering a minor knee injury in the weight room. Given the Monday night kickoff, there's an element of risk to rolling with Pineiro in Week 3 fantasy lineups, but so far the Bears haven't signed another kicker.
Pineiro made all three of his field-goal attempts in Chicago's 16-14 victory over the Broncos on Sunday.
Not only was Pineiro perfect on the day, but two of his kicks were from more than 50 yards, including a game-winner at the final whistle. After this performance, his job with the team should be quite safe, and he's a player who could see enough field-goal attempts to be a weekly starting option.
Pineiro converted his only field-goal attempt in the Bears' 10-3 loss to the Packers on Thursday.
Pineiro's field goal resulted in the first points of the NFL season, and the successful kick brought quite an eruption from the Chicago crowd with the Soldier Field faithful trying to put the memory of Cody Parkey behind them. Otherwise, the Bears were unable to move the ball consistently, resulting in a quiet night for the kicker. With the offense expected to pick things up soon, Pineiro could end up being a serviceable fantasy option, and he would have added value in leagues that provide bonus points for long kicks due to his extremely strong leg.
Pineiro will serve as the Bears' kicker Thursday against the Packers, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
Coach Matt Nagy confirmed Sunday that the team won't bring in a new kicker before the regular-season opener. That doesn't mean Pineiro will keep the job long term; he'll presumably be on a short leash despite converting eight of nine field-goal attempts (including a 58-yarder) in four preseason games. The Bears enter Week 1 with on other kicker on their 53-man roster.
Pineiro made all three of his field-goal attempts but did miss an extra-point try in the Bears' preseason finale against the Titans on Thursday.
Pineiro began the game by missing an extra point, but he rebounded to hit three field goals from 32, 39 and 35 yards. He's currently the only kicker on the roster and thus the presumed starter heading into the regular season. While he's now missed two kicks in preseason action, Pineiro made 11 of 13 total attempts across the four games.
Pineiro was perfect on two field-goal attempts in the Bears' 27-17 win over the Colts on Saturday.
The highlight of Pineiro's evening was when he connected on a 58-yard field goal -- the kick was not only right down the middle, but it had a little distance to spare. As the kicker on an offense that could be ready to erupt, he's looking like a solid fantasy option after the top kickers are off the board.
With Elliott Fry having been let go, Pineiro is now the Bears' only placekicker, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Coach Matt Nagy relayed Sunday that the Bears want to give Pineiro added opportunities to make kicks in practices and games as Week 1 approaches. "The next two games will be great for him to get out there and get some reps," Nagy noted. With Sunday's development, Pineiro now has a great opportunity to seize the team's kicking job, but there's still a chance the Bears could make a move down the road, especially if Pineiro struggles at all in the coming days/weeks.
Pineiro converted one of two field-goal attempts in the Bears' 23-13 preseason loss to the Panthers on Thursday.
Pineiro's first attempt came from 48 yards, and although it had plenty of leg, it hooked wide to the left. Later in the game, he took advantage of his second opportunity by knocking down a 23-yard chip shot. Meanwhile, his teammate Elliott Fry connected on the same kick that Cody Parkey missed in the 2018 playoffs- from 43 yards away, toward the north goalpost, and after a timeout. For now, Fry has the edge in this competition, but it's likely that it'll go on for the next couple weeks. Whoever prevails could emerge as a strong fantasy option because the Bears project for a strong offensive campaign in the coming season.
General manager Ryan Pace said Monday that Pineiro and Elliott Fry are even in the Bears' offseason kicker competition, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.
The Bears acquired Pineiro, who spent the 2018 season on injured reserve due to a groin injury, in a trade with the Raiders earlier this offseason. Now fully healthy, Pineiro has a strong chance to start Week 1 in Chicago if he's able to beat out Fry during training camp.
Pineiro was traded to the Bears in exchange for a conditional 2021 seventh-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Pineiro appeared poised to start for the Raiders as a rookie before sustaining a preseason groin injury, the severity of which kept him on injured reserve for the entire 2018 campaign. He will now compete with Chris Blewitt and Elliott Fry for the Bears' starting kicker role.
