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.
