Rams Place Pro Bowl K Greg Zuerlein on Injured Reserve

Rams Place Pro Bowl K Greg Zuerlein on Injured Reserve

Los Angeles has a two-game lead over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West, but its 10-4 record has the team tied with the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers for the third-most wins in the conference.

Once in L.A., Ficken will be set to replace Pro Bowl kicker Greg Zuerlein, who was placed on the injured reserved list following a back injury. He has made 38 of 40 field goal attempts and is 12-12 from 40-49 yards and 6-7 from over 50 yards. Zuerlein, whose nickname is "Legatron", made both of his field goal attempts and four of five extra points in the blowout.

The team announced late Wednesday afternoon that in place of Zuerlein, they signed former Penn State kicker Sam Ficken, despite the fact that he's never attempted a field goal in an National Football League game.

Ficken went undrafted in 2015 and had stints with the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars in the preseason. The Atlanta Falcons gave wide receiver Julio Jones the day off with an ankle injury.


Quinn added that running back Tevin Coleman and left guard Andy Levitre will be limited in their return to practice.

Broncos noncommittal about QB • Coach Vance Joseph said he hasn't decided who will start at quarterback for the Broncos on Sunday, against the Redskins.

The Pro Bowl (and probably All-Pro) kicker suffered a herniated disc.

Trevor Siemian had been starting until suffering a season-ending shoulder injury on December 14. Lowlights included a miss from the one yard line against IL, and a cringeworthy four missed out of five attempts in a one-point loss to Virginia.
