LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) – The Chicago Bears signed veteran kicker Jay Feely with Robbie Gould doubtful for Thursday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys because of a right quadriceps injury.
Gould, who is tied with Kevin Butler for the franchise record with 243 field goals, sat out practice on Tuesday. The Bears brought in Feely on Wednesday.
Feely has converted 82.7 percent of his field-goal attempts over 13 seasons with Atlanta (2001-04), the New York Giants (2005-06), Miami (2007), the New York Jets (2008-09) and Arizona (2010-13). Feely has also hit 444 of 446 extra points.
The Bears listed receiver Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), safety Chris Conte (eye) and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (knee) as questionable.
They also waived/injured receiver and kick returner Chris Williams.
