Bears kicker Gould to miss rest of season

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -

Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould will miss the remainder of the season after injuring his left calf.

The Bears placed Gould on injured-reserve on Tuesday and signed veteran kicker Olindo Mare to a one-year contract. They also placed cornerback Sherrick McManis (knee) and safety Craig Steltz (chest) on IR while signing linebacker Jerry Franklin to a two-year deal, elevating receiver Joe Anderson from the practice squad and waiving offensive lineman Andre Gurode.

Gould, who ranks among the most accurate kickers in league history, strained his left calf in warm-ups before Sunday's loss at Minnesota, and punter Adam Podlesh handled kickoffs in his place. Gould kicked the extra point after both of Chicago's touchdowns and tried on onside kick late in the game.
