Denver puts Matt Prater on I.R.

By Bill Williamson

Steven Hauschka will finish the season as the Denver Broncos’ kicker.

Denver put Matt Prater on injured reserve with a groin injury. He has missed the past two games.

Hauschka has performed well for Denver. He has made 5-of-6 field-goal attempts. Prater was having an outstanding season before he was hurt. He made 16-of-18 field-goal attempts and was a perfect 10-for-10 on attempts of 39 yards or less. Prater is also outstanding on kickoffs.
