Bears Place Eddy Pineiro on Injured Reserve

The Bears have a need for a kicker yet again.

It looks like the Bears will be without their starting kicker for the beginning of the season, as they have placed Eddy Pineiro on the injured reserve list due to a groin injury.

The next logical move for the Bears would be to promote Cairo Santos before the upcoming game against Detroit this Sunday. Here’s a look at Santos’s career stats:

Notably, Santos has a career field goal percentage of 80.6, which isn’t outstanding by any means. However, this scenario could be much worse. Santos has jumped between several different teams in his tenure and should possess the poise to rise to the occasion under pressure.
