John Fox says Matt Prater “feels much better”


In his opening Super Bowl week press conference on Sunday, Broncos coach John Fox said kicker Matt Prater “feels much better” after missing Denver’s bye-week practices Thursday and Friday with an illness.

“He’ll be fine come next Sunday,” Fox said, calling Prater’s illness a “virus.”

Including the postseason, Prater has connected on 30-of-32 field goals in 2013 for Denver. He hit an NFL-record 64-yard field goal in the Broncos’ December 8 win vs. Tennessee.

Prater has also forced touchbacks on 93-of-126 kickoffs.
