ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP)

Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater stayed home sick again Friday, missing his second straight practice.

Coach John Fox said Prater's absence was a combination of being too ill to work out and a precaution against getting teammates sick as they prepare for the Super Bowl against Seattle on Feb. 2.

Fox called it ''a combination of both, like most sick players. We sent him to the doc, they deal with it, give him medication. He'll be fine.''

Prater converted 25 of 26 field goals in the regular season, including a record 64-yarder against Tennessee on Dec. 8 in Denver. He's 5-for-5 in the playoffs.

Overall, he scored 150 points in the regular season and 20 more in the postseason.
