(670 The Score) -- Bears kicker Eddy Pineiro tweaked his right knee and is officially listed as questionable for Monday night's game at Washington.

However, Bears coach Matt Nagy indicated to reporters at Halas Hall that Pineiro should be 'OK' for the game. He kicked during practice on Saturday, Nagy said.

"We just want to be cautious with it," Nagy told the media in Lake Forest.

Pineiro is 4-for-4 on field goals to start his career with the Bears. That included the game-winning 53-yard field goal in the Bears' 16-14 win over the Broncos last Sunday in Denver.

The Bears also listed Eddie Jackson (knee), Kyle Long (hip) and Trey Burton (groin) as questionable. But Nagy said Jackson and Long were each limited in practice Saturday as a matter of maintenance on the indoor turf field of the Walter Payton Center.

Bears defensive lineman Bilal Nichols (right hand fracture) was officially ruled out.

Kickoff between the Bears (1-1) and Redskins (0-2) comes at 7:25 p.m. CT Monday at FedEx Field.
