Gould was officially listed as questionable, but remained on the Bears' sideline. Gould attempted field goals just prior to kickoff. He could also be seen talking to the Bears' medical staff and special teams coach Dave Toub during warmups.
Punter Adam Podlesh handled the game-opening kickoff for the Bears, which resulted in a touchback. Vikings running Adrian Peterson had a 51-yard on their first play from scrimmage.
Instead of a 52-yard field-goal attempt late in the first quarter, the Bears punted.
Gould, though, kicked the extra point after the Bears scored late in the second quarter. He also warmed up on the sidelines prior to the extra point.
Gould is the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFL history. He entered the game Sunday with a 85.6 field goal percentage in his career.
In other injury news, the Bears lost two reserves. Safety Craig Steltz (chest) and Sherrick McManis (knee) were ruled out with injuries after halftime.
