Fox says PK Prater OK after virus
Prater missed practice all week with the flu and the Broncos kept him away from the rest of the team so he didn't get everyone else sick. He was on the team plane that landed in New Jersey earlier Sunday and Fox says Prater was feeling better.
Fox even joked that the Broncos "put him in a bubble" on the airplane.
Prater, a Pro Bowler this season, was a big part of Denver's record-setting 606-point regular season, converting 25 of 26 field goals and all 75 PATs. In the playoffs, he's 5 or 5 on field goals and PATs.
His only miss was a 52-yard field goal attempt at Kansas City on Dec. 1 that sailed wide left.
Fox says Prater caught a virus "like everybody gets."
