NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater says he’s feeling “a lot better” after missing three practices last week because of an illness and expects to be “totally fine” for the Super Bowl.

Prater kicked Monday for the first time since being sent home by the team last Thursday and says at media day on Tuesday that he didn’t feel too rusty. He missed practices last Thursday through Saturday, and felt as if “a truck hit me.”

While resting at home, Prater thought it was “strange” to see his name on the TV news scroll listed as “questionable” for the Super Bowl. He adds that for the Super Bowl, “I guess everything’s a big deal.”

Prater is 30 of 31 on field-goal attempts, including an NFL-record 64-yarder on Dec. 8 in Denver.
