Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein suffered strange injury during NFC Championship
Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein was one of the heroes of Sunday’s NFC Championship win over the New Orleans Saints, and he apparently did it with a rather unique injury.
According to Rams special teams coordinator John Fassel, Zuerlein strained his left foot when he inadvertently stepped on a metal plate beneath the Superdome turf during the game. The injury was insignificant enough that Fassel didn’t even find out about it until after the game.
Special teams coordinator John Fassel said Greg Zuerlein stepped on a metal plate beneath the Superdome turf and strained his left foot. Fassel said he was not aware of the issue during the game. It did not affect Zuerlein's accuracy. He is expected to practice this week.

Zuerlein was obviously not severely impacted considering he hit two field goals with a high degree of difficulty that ultimately carried the Rams to the Super Bowl. It sounds like there are no concerns about him against the New England Patriots.
