Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein expects to play Sunday in Super Bowl LIII despite a left foot sprain. NFL Network reported Monday that Zuerlein, the only known noteworthy injury on either team, made progress during the idle week since making the game-winning 57-yard field goal to help Los Angeles beat the Saints in the NFC Championship game.
Zuerlein nailed that kick with the injury to his plant foot, which was incurred at halftime of the Rams' win at New Orleans. NFL Network reported Zuerlein might not need to practice until late in the week to get the go-ahead from head coach Sean McVay.
Zuerlein missed five games due to a back injury in the regular season. He made 27 field goals in 11 games. --Field Level Media
