ESPN - [Full Article]

The Chicago Bears placed kicker Robbie Gould on injured reserve with a calf injury and replaced him with 16-year veteran Olindo Mare on Tuesday.

Gould suffered the injury during pregame warmups on Sunday before the Bears' 21-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Punter Adam Podlesh handled kickoffs and the Bears did not attempt a field goal, although Gould did convert two extra-point attempts.

Fantasy Impact:

Mare last played for the Carolina Panthers in 2011, connecting on 22-of-28 field goals.

Finally healthy enough to show Mike Martz what he can do, Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett has exceeded the offensive coordinator’s expectations.

“He’s so good in the slot,” Martz said Thursday. “He does so many good things. He does a great job in those inside routes. He really does so many things for us. I’m excited. I’m really pleased. I thought he was a good player, but he’s even better than I thought. He’s really done a remarkable job.”

After catching 54 passes for 717 yards and 2 touchdowns last season, Bennett sat out the offseason program while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Finally back on the field, he sustained a hamstring injury in training camp that forced him to miss all four preseason games.

After being inactive for the season opener, Bennett caught five passes in a Week 2 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. He then had three receptions and drew a crucial pass-interference penalty that led to Robbie Gould’s game-winning field goal Monday night against the Green Bay Packers.

The way Matt Leinart sees it, he’s done all he can. Now, it’s simply up to his coach, and Ken Whisenhunt wasn’t giving any clues.

He’ll let this competition between Leinart and Derek Anderson play out a little longer after watching each throw for a touchdown while delivering solid if not spectacular performances for the Arizona Cardinals in a 14-9 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears on Saturday night.

Anderson started after the first-team offense struggled with Leinart, and he responded by completing 7 of 12 passes for 94 yards for Arizona (2-1).

Leinart came in late in the second quarter and was 9 of 10 for 84 yards, with a touchdown pass early in the third that made it 14-0 and sent Chicago (0-3) to another loss.

Anderson led the Cardinals to their first touchdown after Calais Campbell blocked Robbie Gould’s 38-yard field goal with 36 seconds left in the first quarter. He converted three third-down passes on a 72-yard drive, and Stephen Williams turned a slant underneath into a 27-yard touchdown.

Leinart came on after Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler’s second interception with just over two minutes left in the first half near midfield. And he had the Cardinals in position to score after going three-and-out on all three series in a loss to Tennessee on Monday night.

They were on the 15 when Beanie Wells lost a fumble at the 6 after being stripped by Danieal Manning with 52 seconds left, stopping what could have been their first scoring drive of the preseason for Leinart. Leinart finally broke through at the halfway mark of the third when Steve Breaston caught a 13-yard pass, flying over Chris Harris at the goal line to make it 14-0.

Arizona WR Early Doucet was back after missing a game with an abdominal strain and caught a 2-yard pass.

Jason Campbell was more relaxed this time and it showed from the outset of Oakland's 32-17 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Oakland's new quarterback led a long scoring drive on the first series of the game, and in his one half of play, Campbell was 10-for-20 for 170 yards with a short TD run and an interception.

In the opening drive, he hit Michael Bush with a 24-yard screen pass on a third-and-17. He completed an 18-yarder to Johnnie Lee Higgins , a 13-yarder to Zach Miller and a 27-yarder to Louis Murphy that carried to the Chicago 2. Campbell sneaked in for the score on a third-and-goal as the Raiders' first unit accounted for its first points of the preseason after failing to score in just over a quarter of action in last week's opener against Dallas.

Chicago's Jay Cutler also played the first half in the game at Soldier Field, completing 7 of 15 for 99 yards with a 22-yard TD pass to Johnny Knox.

Chicago's first-team offense got a big lift when Matt Forte broke loose on an 89-yard TD run in the first quarter. But the Bears converted on only of 2 of 14 third-down situations in the game, while Oakland was 8-for-17.

Kyle Boller quarterbacked the Raiders for most of the second half, scoring on a 2-yard run to cap a 10-play, 51-yard drive late in the third quarter that gave the Raiders a 27-14 lead. Dan LeFevour replaced Cutler and led a drive that reached the 4 before the Bears settled for a 25-yard field goal by Robbie Gould.
