Broncos kicker to miss SuperBowl?

Trouble is brewing and questions are swirling in the Broncos camp this week ahead of their SuperBowl clash with the NFC champion Seattle Seahawks at the Metlife Stadium in New York next Sunday.

Kicker Matt Prater has sat out three consecutive practices due to what seems to be a flu virus and was sent home by the team on Saturday.

Prater has had a fairy-tale like season this year converting 24-25 FG attempts which most spectacularly includes the 64-yarder at home against the Titans on the stroke of half time which was a yard long enough to place the 29-year-old in the record books for the longest ever FG in an NFL game.

Despite the setback and concern over the player's health, Broncos coach John Fox seemed unfazed by Prater contracting the flu virus by telling ESPN that: "He'll be fine."

Prater has played in all 16 of the Broncos' game's this season. He is officially listed as questionable for the SuperBowl on the Denver Broncos injury report, as is star running back Knowshon Moreno who is battling a knee injury sustained in Sunday's AFC championship game.

Coach Fox and the Broncos expect both players to be healthy enough to compete in the Super Bowl.
