Bears safety Ryan Mundy is considering legal action against Schutt Sports after he said a sharp part of one of the company's helmets he was wearing sliced his forehead open in a preseason game last week.

“I need to do some diligence about what action I can take because I can’t be playing football and worry about whether or not I am going to get injured by my own equipment,” Mundy said, via the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

Mundy has not worn a helmet since suffering the gash, which required 16 stitches, but said he will wear a Riddell helmet when he returns to action this week.

Mundy, 29, is a projected starter. The Bears, who played their final preseason game Thursday night, open the regular season Sept. 7 against Buffalo.
