(CBS) After harshly criticizing the Soldier Field playing surface after Sunday night’s soggy game against the Texans, Bears kicker Robbie Gould released a statement Wednesday apologizing.

“I need to apologize to the grounds crew at Soldier Field and our grounds crew for my recent comments regarding the field,” Gould said. “I have since learned a lot more about the NFL’s policies and the measures that are taken at Soldier Field to ensure a reliable and safe playing surface. It was my mistake to speak prior to having a full understanding.”

The Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday that the Soldier Field playing surface will be resodded this week.
