Last Updated: 24/01/19 9:24am
Kicker Greg Zuerlein, whose 57-yard field goal on Sunday sent the Los Angeles Rams to the franchise's first Super Bowl since 2000, is listed with a foot injury on the first injury report ahead of Super Bowl LIII on February 3.
No other details were immediately available, although Rams coach Sean McVay has said the team did not have any serious injuries after Sunday's 26-23 win in overtime over the Saints in New Orleans in the NFC Championship Game.
Zuerlein, who also drilled a 48-yard field goal with 15 seconds left in the fourth quarter to force the game into overtime, was seen wearing a walking boot on Monday, according to Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.

Nicknamed 'Greg the Leg' or 'Legatron', Zuerlein has been consistently great for the Rams since being drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
In the 2018 season, he made 27 of 31 field goals and 35 of 36 extra point attempts, and last week he was a perfect four of four from range, including those two crucial kicks to tie, then win the game.
While the Rams had the day off from practice, the report showed a DNP (did not practice), indicating he would not have practiced anyway. The Rams will take on the New England Patriots, who also won in overtime in the AFC Championship Game by defeating the Chiefs in Kansas City.
The only other Rams player listed on the injury report was safety Blake Countess, also with a foot injury.
