Prater sent home with illness-- Sat Jan 25 3:00 pm --
Broncos kicker expected to be fine for Super Bowl
Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said he saw Matt Prater at the team's facility Saturday morning, but elected to send the ailing kicker home for a third consecutive day. Prater did not participate in the Broncos' practice Saturday because of a virus and did not practice with the team this week. Fox said Prater was sent home, in part, for him to recover and in part to prevent any other players from getting sick. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take:The Broncos are likely being overly cautious with this situation in an effort to keep the rest of the team healthy. Expect Prater to be back with the team next week and kick in the Super Bowl.
