Cairo Santos: How Bears Kicker Trained to Prepare for Soldier Field

Even before a single snap of the 2022 season, the playing surface of Soldier Field is apparently already in rough shape.

That’s not great news for them Bears as they prepare to play host to the Chiefs on Saturday afternoon in the preseason opener for both teams.

“Especially Week 1, our first game of the season—I’ve seen better,” Bears kicker Cairo Santos said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s just what we have to deal with. The less of a problem you make it in your mind, it helps you overcome it and just go.”

But Santos wasn’t blindsided by the field conditions at Soldier Field, which the Bears share with the Chicago Fire FC of MLS. In fact, he’s so accustomed to the inconsistencies of the field that he deliberately sought out a lousy field for practice near his Florida home, according to the Sun-Times.
