Report: Bears P Pat O'Donnell is day to day with knee sprain

The Chicago Bears, who are already struggling on special teams, took another hit this week, as NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports that punter Pat O'Donnell has a knee sprain and is being monitored on a day-to-day basis.

O'Donnell was a sixth-round pick in last year's draft and has averaged 47.6 yards per punt this season with a long of 72 yards. He was one of the Bears' busiest players in last week's 26-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, punting 10 times for a total of 477 yards.

The injury to O'Donnell should put more heat on Chicago's offense to finish drives with a score. The punter's status for Week 4 versus the Oakland Raiders will be updated throughout the week.
